The herd has been tested or TB, CA and vaccinated for botulism and vaccinated with RB 51. These heifers come from a cowherd that has been in existence since 1987. The main herd comes from Natal, originally from Bartlow-Combine. ±70% of the females. ±10% is made up from Venda, Lebowa and Makatini origins. 20% is made up from Pedi cattle and kept pure – mainly for their good size and excellent feed conversion. A large portion of the Pedi’s came from the now defunct Stellenbosch herd in Lebowa, while the rest originated from the tribal herds in the Burgersfort district of Lebowa.

We still do performance testing and the chief focus is on efficiency, longevity and fertility. Average I C P is ± 374 days for a cow herd of 450+ animals. We try to push for 2 cows per/ha, grazing on a crop rotation medic/grain system, whilst heifers at between 3 to 4 per/ha: carry strategy is to aim for 830 – 850kg/ha biomass.
