LEES ASB EERS HIERDIE BELANGRIKE INLIGTING OOR DIE BULBESKRYWINGS DEUR VOORDAT JY VERDER GAAN

Hierdie is die 13de Hartebeestloop Produksie Veiling en deur die jare is daar ‘n sekere standaard gevestig. Dit is nie meer nodig om die standaard met elke bulbeskrywing te herhaal nie. Die beskrywings word tè omslagtig, bevat tè veel inligting en lees tè moeilik. Ek gee jou die versekering dat geen bul wat nie aan die onderstaande voldoen, op die veiling is nie.

A. PRESTASIETOETSING OP DIE VELD EN IN DIE ALGEMEEN:

  1. Pelvismetings
    Die eienskap is oorerflik en daar is genoeg variasie in pelvisgrootte om daarvoor te selekteer. Streng seleksie onder die veilingsbulle bring kalfgemak na jou kudde. As ‘n bul nie voldoen aan die norme vir pelvisgrootte nie, is dit nie op die veiling nie. Ek dui nie pelvisdata aan in die bulbeskrywings nie maar, dit is gedoen en beskikbaar.

  2. VERSKEIE ANDER METINGS EN EIENSKAPPE Kondisietellings, temperament, kwaliteit vel en haar, klou kwaliteit en uier en speen evaluering van die vroulike diere in die bul se stamboom.
    Hierdie eienskappe is deurlopend geëvalueer – dit is vir ons en jou van dieselfde ekonomiese waarde as amptelike prestasietoetsing. Ons ken die finansiële verlies van ‘n swak kalf weens dopspene of ‘n swak uier by die koei. So ook die probleme met hans kalwers grootmaak. Ons doelwit is om langtermyn genetiese voordeel na jou kudde te bring met behoud van goeie kondisie op die veld, mak en hanteerbare beeste, goeie aanpasbaarheid, goeie loopvermoë en fantastiese spene en uiers wat hou-en-hou. Hierdie data is beskikbaar vir alle veilingsbulle.

  3. Aanpasbaarheid en groeivermoë op die veld
    Aanpasbaarheid word gemeet as deel van die amptelike prestasietoetsing. Ons gee egter die ekstra tree en doen ook ‘n VeldPrestasie toets op die plaas onder ekstensiewe toestande. Al die eienskappe wat aanpasbaarheid, gehardheid, veldvoeromset en groeivermoë op die veld bepaal, word saamgevoeg in die Hartebeestloop VeldPrestasie Indeks. Die veilingsbulle het almal die toets deurgegaan en genoegsaam presteer om te voldoen aan die kriteria om op die veld suksesvol te presteer. Dit is wêreldwyd ‘n neiging om alle belangrike eienskappe saam te vat in ‘n gesamentlike indeks. In die bulbeskrywings word nie verwys na die Hartebeestloop VeldPrestasie Indeks of na die individuele komponente wat die indeks opmaak nie.

  4. Veldbultoets
    Onderstaande is ‘n kort beskrywing van die redes en ons toepassing van Veldbultoetse op Hartebeestloop. Ek verwys nie meer na die individuele bulle se Veldbulprestasies as deel van die bulbeskrywings nie. Bulle wat nie presteer het onder veldtoestande nie, is alreeds uitgeskot en nie deel van die veiling nie. Die Hartebeestloop Ekonomiese Indekse vir individuele bulle is wel beskikbaar op aanvraag.

    Tom Lasater (stigter van die Beefmasters) het die volgende gesê en met groot sukses toegepas: “Livestock should be bred, born, raised, performance tested and sold under the conditions they will produce.” Op Hartebeestloop pas ons die filosofie streng toe en glo dat die uitgroei van bulle op ruvoer vir ordentlike ontwikkeling van voormae, ‘n sleutelfaktor is vir die latere goeie prestasies onder veldtoestande.

    Ons stel net belang in die eienskappe wat vir ons kliënte meer geld in die sak bring en daarom toets ons in samewerking met Veldbul SA die volgende:
    • Groei op die veld as indikasie van lae insetkoste beeste
    • Doeltreffendheid van veldweidingomset na vleis en gewig
    • Handhawing van kondisie op die veld as indikasie van lae insetkoste en aanpasbaarheid
    • Temperament om maklik en veilig te boer
    • Pelvisgrootte vir maklike kalwing
    • Haarkleed vir aanpasbaarheid
    • Skrotumomtrek as indikasie van vrugbaarheid van vroulike nageslag

    Hiervolgens word dan ‘n Hartebeestloop Veldbul Ekonomiese Indeks uitgewerk en aan elke bul toegeken.

  5. Ultrasoniese skandering en die potensiaal vir goeie vleisopbrengs en hoë uitslagpersentasie
    Ons doen ultrasoniese skanderings vir so lank as wat ek kan onthou. Hierdie data word gebruik om vleisopbrengs en uitslagpersentasie binne gebalanseerde perkte te verbeter as deel van ons teelbeleid. Die Hartebeestloop slagbees prestasies by Meatco is ‘n bewys dat daar wel suksesvol vir die 2 eienskappe geselekteer kan word. Ek gebruik soms algemene boere-terme soos volvleis bul, gepak met vleis ensomeer as deel van die bulbeskrywing – dit is net om die vleiseienskappe van ‘n spesifieke dier te beklemtoon. Die vleisdraende vermoë van die bulle en die genetiese potensiaal om dit oor te dra na die nageslag is ‘n belangrike teeldoelwit op Hartebeestloop. Ons wil graag die hoeveelheid “vleis” in jou kudde verbeter. Ek gee egter nie meer die verwagte uitslagpersentasie en karkasopbrengs in die bulbeskrywings nie. Dit raak net tè veel inligting.

  6. Ultrasoniese skandering, grootte van oogspieroppervlakte en vroeë vetneerleggingsvermoë
    Bespiering in vleisbeeste is ‘n belangrike ekonomiese produksie eienskap. Dit is hoekom oogspieroppervlaktes gemeet word want dit gee ‘n baie goeie indikasie van die algehele bespiering van die dier. Oormatige bespiering het egter ‘n negatiewe invloed op vrugbaarheid en reproduksievermoë. Die vermoë van diere om vroeg genoeg vet neer te lê, is ‘n noodsaaklikheid vir vroeg vrugbaar en vroeg in kondisie kom, om bul te vat. Die waarde van “kombinasie diere” wat genoegsame bespiering het èn die vermoë besit om vroeg in kondisie te kom – is die “ultimate smart partnership” tussen produksie en reproduksie. Vir my is dit ‘n vereiste vir suksesvolle beesboerdery. Hierdie data is weereens beskikbaar vir alle veilingsbulle en ek verwys soms in die bulbeskrywings na spesifieke diere wat uitstaande is vir hierdie 2 eienskappe.

  7. Manlikheid, sekondêre manlikheidseienskappe, geslagsegtheid, skrotumomtrek, vrugbaarheid en libido
    Die veilingsbulle is verskeie kere en weer-en-weer geëvalueer op die visuele eienskappe wat manlikheid en potensiële libido aandui. Vanaf welige stertkwas tot kaal voorkoppe! Skrotumomtrekke is gemeet en skrotums en geslagsorgane is klinies ondersoek en voldoen aan die Bonsmara en Veeartseny standaarde. Alle bulle is vrugbaar getoets deur die veearts en van geselekteerde bulle is mikroskopiese video opnames gedoen van die semenontleding. Die veilingsbulle is reg om te werk! Die data is alles beskikbaar maar word nie onder elke bulbeskrywing bespreek nie.



B. AMPTELIKE PRESTASIETOETSING Ek probeer om die bulbeskrywings te vergemaklik vir die boere deur die prestasietoets data in ‘n makliker vorm met Teelwaarde Indekse en Logix Seleksie Waardes deur te gee. Onderstaande is die verduideliking oor hoe die Teelwaarde Indekse en Logix Seleksie Waardes bepaal word en hoe dit verstaan en gebruik moet word.

  1. Hoekom word Teelwaarde Indekse gebruik in die bulbeskrywings en nie die individuele Teelwaardes nie?
    Die teelwaarde indeks is makliker om te verstaan as ‘n teelwaarde, veral vir die kommersiële boere. Die basis van ‘n teelwaarde indeks is 100, wat die gemiddelde teelwaarde van die lewendige diere in die ras aandui. Waardes bo 100 is altyd in die meer gewenste rigting en dit dui aan dat die dier ‘n bogemiddelde genetiese potensiaal het vir ‘n spesifieke eienskap ten opsigte van die lewendige diere in die ras. Daar is egter heelwat kere wat waardes tussen 80 - 100 aanvaarbaar is, afhangende van die prioriteit van die eienskap wat jy wil aanspreek in jou kudde. Vra gerus hulp by een van die veilingskonsultante as jy onseker oor dit is.

  2. Hoekom word die Logix Seleksie Waardes (Logix Groei Waarde en Logix Produksie Waarde) gebruik in die bulbeskrywings?
    Die Logix Seleksie Waardes is die kombinasie van die teelwaardes in ‘n enkele waarde. Dit gee ‘n vinnige en maklike indikasie van die gekombineerde genetiese waarde van die dier ten opsigte van sy ras. Dit maak dit onnodig om elke teelwaarde afsonderlik vir elke eienskap vir elke dier te bespreek. Die kombinasie genetiese waardes saamgevat in ‘n Groei Waarde en ‘n Produksie Waarde dui die genetiese meriete van die dier aan. Die basiswaarde is 100 en is waardes bo 100 in die gewenste rigting. Onthou hierdie Logix Seleksie Waardes word uit verskeie subwaardes opgebou en weereens is waardes tussen 90 en 110 baie aanvaarbaar. Dit is tans die neiging om verskeie teelwaardes saam te vat in een waarde om verstaanbaarheid en besluitneming te bevorder. Hierdie data is vir elke bul beskikbaar maar word nie in die bulbeskrywings aangedui nie.



C. LOGIX SELEKSIE WAARDES

As daar enige onduidelikheid oor die Logix Seleksie waardes is, kan jy my enige tyd kontak.

LOT 01: HART 17-0026

VIDEO  /  SIRE

HART 17-0026’s father is HART 11-0050 (click on the sire link above) that was extensively used in the Hartebeestloop herd. His motherline is outstanding: BHE 04-201 being a SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW on his father’s side, while his own mother GBS 06-0107 also boasts the title SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW with AFC 25 months, ICP 376 days/9 calves and she weans at 47,9% of her body weight.

HART 17-0026 is a well-muscled, sturdy medium-frame bull. He has good general width, great overall capacity and spring of rib, strong topline and nice depth throughout the forequarter. He is packed with meat. His inner and outer thighs, loins and slope of rump are filled with meat with good thickness across the back. He further reveals ample growth in his pre-wean and post-wean breeding values respectively at 110 and 115. During performance testing he demonstrated an ADG index of 118 and a Veld Feed Conversion index of 115. Both his Dressing-mass Percentage and Carcass Production stands at an impressive 113 which validates his great post-wean growth and muscling traits.

He is very well adapted for difficult farming conditions for which the Bonsmara is exactly bred for. His coat is glossy and thick with broad folds and a nicely developed dewlap. Great rump development, strong legs, clean underline and long tail. HART 17-0026 was one of the best achievers during the Veld Bull Test 114 that was performed under very difficult and dry conditions.

His secondary masculine traits are very well developed: strong head and jawline, broad eyebrow ridges and excellent deepening of colour in the neck and forequarter. His scrotum hangs symmetrical, is beautifully formed and measures 43,5 cm. Breeding score for scrotum circumference is 114.

HART 17-0026 performed well during the official performance testing and his data reflects this. In my opinion, his performance on the veld - that included monthly weigh-ins, temperament evaluation and overall ranking in the group – was more important than his official performance testing. HART 17-0026 is a bull that will deliver heavy weaners and oxen. Furthermore he will add excellent growth ability and adaptability to your herd, while bringing along good muscling - and conformity – traits. He has a white patch in front of the scrotum that may distract stud breeders. This is an excellent opportunity for commercial farmers to acquire a stud bull.

Hy is geteel uit HART 11-0050 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) wat sterk gebruik is in die Hartebeestloop kudde. HART 17-0026 se moederlyne is uitsonderlik met BHE 04-201 aan vaderskant ‘n SA Stamboek ELITE GOUD KOEI en sy moeder GBS 06-0107 ook ‘n SA Stamboek ELITE GOUD KOEI met OEK 25 mnde, TKP van 376 dae/9 kalwers en sy speen teen 47,9% van haar liggaamsmassa.

HART 17-0026 is ‘n goed bespierde, sterk mediumraam bul met baie goeie breedte, goeie kapasiteit en sprong van rib, sterk toplyn en baie diepte deur die voorlyf. Hy dra baie vleis en het goeie buite en binne dye, goed gevul met vleis oor die lende en kruishelling en baie mooi breedte oor die rug. Hy vertoon uitstekende groeivermoë teelwaarde indekse met voorspeense groei van 110 van naspeense groei van 115. Tydens prestasietoetsing is sy GDT 118 en sy Veldvoeromset 115. Sy teelwaarde indekse vir Uitslagpersentasie en Vleisopbrengs is 113 vir beide – dit is in lyn met sy goeie naspeense groeivermoë en goeie bespiering.

Hy is uitstekend aangepas vir die ekstensiewe boerdery – presies waarvoor die Bonsmara geteel is. Sy vel blink, is dik met breë voue en sy nekvel is baie goed ontwikkel. Sy haarkleed is kort en glansend. Daar is baie goeie skofontwikkeling, sterk bene, lang stert en skoon onderlyn. Hy is een van die beste presteerders tydens ‘n strawwe VeldBultoets wat onder moeilike en droë toestande gedoen word, met ‘n VeldBulindeks van 114.

Sy sekondêre manlikheidseienskappe is baie goed ontwikkel – sy kop is sterk, breed met goeie oogbanke en ‘n breë bek. Hy vertoon uitstekende verdonkering in die nek en voorlyf en sy skrotum hang mooi simmetries, is goed gevorm en meet 43,5 cm. Sy teelwaarde indeks vir skrotumomtrek is 114.

HART 17-0026 het uitstekend gedoen met amptelike prestasietoetsing en sy prestasiedata wys dit. Vir my was sy prestasies op die veld met maandeliks wegings, kondisietelling, temperament evaluering en algemene prestasie in die groep, amper belangriker as die amptelike prestasietoetsing. Hier is ‘n bul wat orals gaan aard, swaar speenkalwers en osse produseer, uitstekende groeivermoë in jou kudde bring, goeie bespiering en uitstekende bouvorm vestig en aanpasbaarheidseienskappe vaslê in jou kudde. Hy het ‘n wit gedeelte net voor sy skrotum wat dalk stoettelers mag hinder. Hierdie is ‘n uitstekende geleentheid vir kommersiële boere om ‘n stoetpotensiaal bul te bekom.

LOT 02: HART 17-0138

VIDEO  /  SIRE

HART 17-0138 is the son of the dependable HART 11-0058 (click on the sire link above) and HART 12-0004. His mother is a SA Stud Book 4-Star Cow with an AFC of 25 months, ICP of 362 days/6 calves; average wean index of 107/6 calves and she weans at 47,3% of her body weight. Her accomplishments reflect her mother’s achievements, HART 07-0177: AFC 26 months, ICP 363 days/8 calves. HART 17-0138’s grandmother on his father’s side is HART 05-0004, a SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW with AFC of 29 months and ICP of 375 days/9 days. When it comes to HART 17-0138, you can write a book about the mother line’s achievements. HART 17-0138 is a well-muscled, medium-frame bull that can be put to work on mature heifers and cows. He does not however meet all the requirements of a calving ease bull and for that reason we strongly recommend careful consideration when using him on heifers. He is an impressive bull with great conformity, overall width, capacity and nice depth throughout the forequarter. He is packed with meet behind shoulders. You cannot ask for better meat traits! He also shows a strong topline, beautiful tail attachment and slope of rump, sturdy legs with good width across the hocks and strong claws. The underline is great with a satisfactory navel/sheath combination. His overall balance and ease of movement is faultless.

The bull’s adaptability speaks for itself and we invite you to personally come and look at HART 17-0138.

His alert attitude and head-held-high posture reflects his masculinity. He has a strong and masculine head, broad jawline, good width between the eyes and well developed eyebrow ridges. Deepening of colour is beautiful and his scrotum measures 44 cm with a breeding index of (115).

The breeding values are consistently outstanding – birth weight/calving ease (106), pre-wean and post-wean growth index (100) and (103) respectively; ADG (106), feed conversion ratio (102), gras efficiency rate (105), milk index (98), Mature weight (97), Maintenance index (107). The 3 selection indices are: Cow Index (109), Growth Index (110) and Production Index (110). The point I want to emphasis is that continuously delivers but he maintains the Bonsmara standard for Mature Weight.

HART 17-0138 promises to be stud performer. From his family tree, mother lineage, personal performance, breeding indices, conformity, visual appearance and right through to market demands, he is spot on. Pay close attention to this diamond bull!

Hy is ‘n seun van die staatmaker bul HART 11-0058 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) by HART 12-0004. Sy is ‘n SA Stamboek 4-Ster koei met OEK 25 mnde, TKP van 362 dae/6 kalwers, gemiddelde speenindeks van 107/6 kalwers en sy speen teen 47,3% van haar liggaamsmassa. Haar prestasies is ‘n herhaling van haar ma HART 07-0177 se prestasies - OEK 26 mnde, TKP 363 dae/8 kalwers. HART 17-0138 se ouma aan vaderskant is HART 05-0004 ‘n SA Stamboek ELITE GOUD KOEI met OEK 29 mnde en TKP van 375 dae/9 kalwers. Jy kan ‘n boek skryf oor HART 17-0138 se moederlyne se prestasies.

HART 17-0138 is ‘n goed bespierde, mediumraam bul wat op goed uitgegroeide verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Hy voldoen nie aan al die kriteria van ‘n kalfgemak bul nie en kan dus nie op enige vers gebruik word nie. Hy is werklik ‘n indrukwekkende bul met goeie bouvorm, breedte, kapasiteit, ‘n diep voorlyf en baie goed gevul agter die blaaie. Jy kan seker nie vir beter vleiseienskappe vra nie. Sy toplyn is sterk, kruishelling en stertaanhegting is goed en hy het baie sterk bene, baie breedte oor die hakke en goeie kloue. Sy onderlyn is mooi met ‘n goeie naelvel/skede kombinasie. Sy balans en loopvermoë is uitstekend.

Ek gaan nie veel sê oor die aanpasbaarheid van die bul nie. Die beste is om self na hom te kom kyk.

Sy houding reflekteer sy manlikheid. Hy is ‘n op en aan die gang, wakker en kop-op bul. Die kop is sterk en baie manlik, bek is breed, breedte tussen die oë en oogbanke is goed, verdonkering is mooi en sy skrotum meet 44 cm met skrotumomtrek teelwaarde indeks van (115).

Die teelwaarde indekse is deurgaans goed – geboortegewig/kalfgemak (106), voorspeense en naspeense groeivermoë (100) en (103) onderskeidelik, GDT (106), voeromsetverhouding (102), weidingomset (105), melk (98), Volwasse Gewig (97), Onderhoud Waarde (107) en die 3 seleksie indekse - Koei Waarde (109), Groei Waarde (110) en Produksie Waarde (110). Die punt wat ek maak, is dat hy deurgaans uitstekende prestasie data het, maar mooi op Volwasse Gewig Bonsmara standaard bly.

HART 17-0138 wys goeie stoetpotensiaal. Regdeur vanaf stambome, moederlyne, eie prestasies, teelwaarde indekse, bouvorm, visuele voorkoms en wat die mark benodig en soek – is hy in die kol. Kyk baie mooi na hom!

LOT 03: HT 16-0077 (POENA / POLLED)

VIDEO  /  SIRE

HT 16-0077 is bred from HT 13-0010 (PH) that now resides at Zunica Bonsmaras (Nic van Heerden). His breeding history extends back to the renowned polled bull JPL 06-0105 from the Snyman brothers. His mother JPL 07-0048 (PH) was purchased during the sale auction of the Snyman brothers and she adapted well to the Kalahari. Her AFC is 32 months and ICP of 413 days/8 calves. Her ICP was excellent while she was still in South Africa. During 2015/2016 she was sent to Namibia and she was placed under even more pressure due to the severe drought. She thus did not deliver any calves during 2017.

He is a well-muscled, medium-frame and calving ease bull that can be used on heifers and cows. I want to jump in with the characteristics that are important for polled for animals: he displays a masculine and strong head, well-developed eyebrow ridges, good width between the eyes, neck is beautifully developed with nice deepening of colour.

His underline is nice and clean with a good navel/sheath combination. There's no sign of prolapse. The scrotum circumference measures 42,5 cm, is well-formed and hangs symmetrically. The scrotal breeding index is (112).

His overall muscling is great; there is good structural width throughout as well as sufficient capacity with nice spring of rib and depth through the forequarter. The topline is strong and broad; slope of rump and tail attachment are satisfactory while the legs and claws are nice and strong. His skeletal framework is slightly more refined.

He is very well adapted for veld conditions and excelled within his group with a Veld Bull Index of (113). His Maintenance Index of (104) highlights his performance on the veld. During performance testing he delivers the following results: Wean Index (98), ADG (115) and Grass Feed Efficiency Index of (115). Remember that we test the polled and horned animals together in a group – we are interested in the animals’ performance.

HT 16-0077 is not only an outstanding polled animal but also an outstanding bull overall. He was used within our herd as a young bull and we also used his father, HT 13-0010. The polled genetic pool is still relatively small which can be quite restrictive. Commercial farmers that want to establish the polled gene within their herd should pay attention to HT 16-0077.

HT 16-0077 is geteel uit HT 13-0010 (PH) wat nou by Zunica Bonsmaras van Nic van Heerden is. Sy teling gaan al die pad terug na die bekende poena bul JPL 06-0105 van die Snyman-broers. Sy moer JPL 07-0048 (PH) is aangekoop op die uitverkoping veiling van die Snyman-broers en sy het goed aangepas in die Kalahari. Haar OEK is 32 mnde en TKP van 413 dae/8 kalwers. Haar TKP was uitstekend gedurende haar leeftyd in die RSA maar, sy is gedurende die droogte tydperk 2015/2016 na Namibië gestuur en het haar hier vasgeloop in nog ‘n erger droogte. Sy het dus nie gekalf in 2017 nie.

Hy is ‘n goed bespierde, mediumraam, kalfgemak bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Ek begin dadelik met die eienskappe wat belangrik vir poena diere is – hy vertoon baie manlik, sy kop is sterk met oogbanke wat baie goed ontwikkel is, daar is baie goeie breedte tussen die oë, die nek is goed ontwikkel met mooi verdonkering.

Sy onderlyn is baie mooi met ‘n goeie naelvel/skede kombinasie. Daar is geen teken van prolaps nie. Die skrotumomtrek is 42,5 cm, dit is goed gevorm en hang baie mooi. Die skrotum teelwaarde indeks is (112).

Sy bespiering is goed (kyk die V-vorm op die voorarm), daar is goeie breedte reg deur, genoegsame kapasiteit met mooi sprong van rib en ‘n diep voorlyf. Die toplyn is sterk en breed, kruishelling en stertaanhegting is goed en sy bene en kloue is sterk. Die beenstruktuur is effens fyner vir kalfgemak op verse.

Hy is goed aangepas vir veldtoestande en presteer uitstekend in die groep met VeldBulindeks van (113). Sy Onderhoud Waarde van (104) onderstreep sy prestasies op die veld. Gedurende prestasietoetsing doen hy goed met Speenindeks (98), GDT (115) en Veldvoeromsetvermoë (115) – en onthou ons toets die poena diere en horing diere in een groep. Ons stel belang of die dier presteer – nie of hy poena of horing is nie.

HT 16-0077 is ‘n baie goeie BUL– nie net ‘n baie goeie poena bul nie. Indien jy in poena stoetteling is, kan jy gerus na hom kyk. Hy is gebruik in ons kudde as jong bul en sy kalwers val nou. Ons het ook sy pa HT 13-0010 gebruik. Die poena genepoel is tans nog baie klein en jy is gou in ‘n hoek met inteling. Ons kan hom nie verder gebruik nie. Kommersiële boere wat die poena gene in hulle kuddes wil vestig, kan gerus na hom kyk.

LOT 04: HART 16-0266

VIDEO  /  SIRE

He is bred from FCT 11-0285 and HART 12-0169. He comes from outstanding mother lines on both his mother’s - and father’s – side: FCT 06-0069 with AFC of 26 months, ICP 387 days/11 calves and GBS 06-0107 (SA Stud Book ELITE GOLDEN COW) with AFC of 25 months, ICP 376 days/9 calves. His own mother, HART 12-0169 brings the following to the table: AFC of 24 months, ICP 384 days/6 calves and she weans at 45,4% of her body mass. HART 16-0266 comes from diamond mother lineages.

HART 16-0266 is well muscled, medium-frame bull that can be used on mature heifers and cows. His masculinity and strong conformity will catch you eye. His head boasts masculinity, broad between the eyes, well-defined eyebrow ridges and broad jawline – this is not a bull to be messed with! The neck is thick, broad and beautifully darker in colour. The scrotum hangs perfectly and measures 42 cm.

He has great overall build and conformity. Right through he has great capacity, with meaty inner – and outer – thighs and deep forequarter. HART 16-0266 has excellent meat characteristics. Well adapted to the harsh Kalahari and drought hardy – these are the adaptability traits that will make or break a bull. The coat is smooth, short and glossy. The throat skinfolds are loose, thick and full of broad folds. The rump development is beautiful, tail stretches to the ground and his underline is clean and legs are nice and strong.

The bull’s official performance - and “on-the-farm-Hartebeestloop” – testing data is outstanding. His breeding indices for Birth Weight (92), pre- and post-wean growth respectively (109) and (112), ADG (110), feed-conversion ratio (106) and milk (95) are exemplary. If I list every Bonsmara breeding value of HART 16-0266 it will capture your attention.

HART 16-0266 is an outstanding bull in every way. His father, FCT 11-0285 played an important role within our herd and on top of that his grandmothers and mothers are phenomenal cows. HART 16-0266 has achieved TOP visual scores, his breeding indices compliment and support his form, his male authenticity noticeable, he is well adapted for hard veld conditions and his conformity is excellent. He demonstrates a lot of stud potential and stud breeders have a good look at him. He also worked on the farm of Hochfeldstreek Bonsmaras (Streicher Coetzee) and his calves are brilliant.

Sy moederlyne aan beide die vader en moederkant is baie goed met FCT 06-0069 OEK 26 mnde, TKP 387 dae/11 kalwers en GBS 06-0107 SA Stamboek ELITE GOUD KOEI, OEK 25 mnde, TKP 376 dae/9 kalwers. Sy moeder HART 12-0169 se OEK is 24 mnde, TKP 384 dae/6 kalwers en sy speen 45,4% van haar liggaamsmassa. Diamant koeilyne in hierdie teling!

HART 16-0266 is ‘n goed bespierde mediumraam bul wat op goed uitgegroeide verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Jy sal heel eerste sy baie goeie manlikheid raak sien en dan die sterk bouvorm. Sy kop is baie manlik, breed tussen die oë, goeie oogbanke en breë bek – jy kan sommer sien hierdie is nie ‘n man om mee te sukkel nie. Die nek is dik, breed en baie goed verdonker. Die skrotum hang mooi maar wys effe na voor en meet 42 cm.

Hy het baie goeie bouvorm, is breed met goed gevulde binne en buite dye, sterk toplyn, goeie kruishelling, baie mooi kapasiteit en ‘n diep voorlyf. Daar is uitstekende vleiseienskappe aan die bul. Kalahari aangepas en droogte taai uitgegroei – en dit is waar aanpasbaarheid die maak of breek kriterium is. Sy vel is glad, die haarkleed is kort en blink, die keelvel is los, dik en vol breë velvoue. Die skofontwikkeling is baie goed, stert hang op die grond, onderlyn is skoon en bene is sterk.

Sy data van amptelike prestasietoetsing en “op-die-plaas Hartebeestloop” eie toetsing, is uitstekend. Sy teelwaarde indekse vir Geboortegewig (92), voor en naspeense groei onderskeidelik (109) en (112), GDT (110), voeromsetverhouding (106) en melk (95), is goed. Ek kan elke moontlike Bonsmara teelwaarde indeks hier lys, en dit sal jou aandag trek.

HART 16-0266 is ‘n uitstaande bul in elke opsig. Sy vaar FCT 11-0285 het ‘n merkwaardige rol in ons kudde gespeel, sy oumas aan beide kante en sy moeder is almal ysterkoeie, hy is visueel TOP gepunt, sy teelwaarde indekse komplimenteer en ondersteun sy voorkoms, sy geslagsegtheid is opvallend, hy is goed aangepas vir veldtoestande en sy bouvorm is uitstekend. Hy vertoon goeie stoetpotensiaal en stoettelers moet mooi na hom kyk. Hy het by ook Hochfeldstreek Bonsmaras van Streicher & Hella Coetzee gewerk en sy kalwers lyk uitstekend!

He is a medium-frame, calving ease bull that can be used on cows and heifers. There are several important traits to consider when looking at a calving ease bull. Remember that the average breeding value is 100. Look at the below breeding values of HART 17-0010 and compare him against the breed average.

  1. Birth weight index (118) that indicates calving ease. The pre-wean (98) and post-wean growth (101) values are indicative that the calves will wean on breed average followed by sufficient growth afterwards for oxen production.
  2. The milk breeding index (110) confirms ample milk that will be transmitted to the female offspring to produce heavy weaners.
  3. His Average Daily Weight Gain (ADG 107), Feed Conversion Ratio (103), Veld Conversion to meat (107) and Veld Bull Index (104) shows that he performs efficiently on the veld.
  4. He is well muscled, with good conformity, sufficient width throughout, beautiful mid-piece, great general capacity and depth within the forequarter. He has a satisfactory breeding value of (113) for eye muscle surface area which again highlights his outstanding muscling traits. Muscling is supple which places him in the calving-ease category.
  5. HART 17-0010 condition index has consistently been above group average and his early fat deposition score (119) supports this; always first to reach top condition and maintain it. Adaptability is not based solely on performance breeding scores but is a continuous visual evaluation and good stockmanship process with emphasis on traits to increase profits. These are the type of bulls everyone wants to breed.
  6. His Maintenance Index (101) and Cow Index (120) shows that he delivers more with less input. These values are a summary of a number of important characteristics: low input costs, calving ease, ample milk and production of heavy weaners.

HART 17-0010 is bred from FCT 11-0285 and HART 12-0041. She is a phenomenal cow with AFC 24 months, ICP 363 days/6 calves, wean index of 101/6 while she still manages to wean at 45,5% of her body mass.

HART 17-0010 will surely improve calving-ease in your herd. He is also a good bull to consider for opening heifers and producing beautiful weaners and oxen. He can also be used successfully on cows when considering his best traits: great growth ability, ADG, feed conversion and adaptability.

Hy is ‘n mediumraam kalfgemak bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Daar is soveel eienskappe wat van belang is by ‘n goeie kalfgemak bul en ek lys ‘n paar, en toets terselfdertyd HART 17-0010 aan die eienskappe. Onthou dat ‘n teelwaarde indeks van 100 is gemiddeld en doen self die vergelyking.

  1. Geboortegewig indeks is (118) wat kalfgemak aandui maar sy voorspeense (98) en naspeense groeivermoë (101) is ‘n aanduiding dat sy kalwers op rasgemiddeld sal speen en dat daar genoeg naspeense groei is om goeie osse te produseer.
  2. Sy melk teelwaarde indeks van (110) wys daar is oorgenoeg melk wat hy oordra na sy vroulike nageslag - vir hulle om weer swaar speenkalwers te produseer.
  3. Sy Gemiddelde Daaglikse Gewigstoename (GDT 107), Voeromsetverhouding (103), Veldweiding omset in vleis (107) en VeldBulindeks (104) wys dat hy baie doeltreffend presteer op die veld.
  4. Hy is goed bespierd met goeie bouvorm, genoeg breedte, mooi middelstuk, baie goeie kapasiteit en ‘n diep voorlyf. Sy teelwaarde indeks vir oogspieroppervlakte is (113) wat aanduiding van goeie bespiering is. Die bespiering is soepel en nie bonkig nie – daarom klassifiseer hy as kalfgemak bul.
  5. HART 17-0010 se kondisietellings is altyd bo die groepgemiddeld en sy vroeë vetneerlegging teelwaarde indeks van (119) wys dit duidelik. Altyd eerste in kondisie en behou dit die langste. Aanpasbaarheid is nie net baseer op teelwaarde indekse bereken vanaf prestasietoetsing nie – dit is die voortdurende evaluering met eie oog, goeie “stockmanship” en klem op eienskappe wat wins verbeter. Dit is die tipe beeste wat almal wil teel.
  6. Vir die 2 baie belangrike eienskappe vir winsgewinde boerdery onder veldtoestande, presteer hy as volg: Onderhoud Waarde (101) – hy doen meer met minder. Koei Waarde (120) – samevatting van klomp eienskappe wat die volgende uit wys: Lae onderhoudkoste, kalfgemak, genoeg melk en die vermoë om swaar speenkalwers te produseer.

HART 17-0010 is geteel uit FCT 11-0285 en HART 12-0041. Sy is ‘n uitstekende koei met OEK 24 mnde, TKP van 363 dae/6 kalwers, speenindeks van 101/6 en sy speen teen 45,5% van haar liggaamsmassa.

HART 17-0010 sal kalfgemak in jou kudde verbeter. Hy sal ook goed doen as jy op soek is na ‘n bul om verse oop te maak maar, nog steeds goeie speenkalwers en osse te produseer vanaf die verse. Sy beste eienskap is egter dat hy met sy goeie groeivermoë, GDT, veldweiding omset in vleis, voeromset en aanpasbaarheid ook baie suksesvol op koeie gebruik kan word.

We have had great success by pairing late Hansie Steyn’s (HJS) lineage with Namibian genetics, especially with the Woestyn Bonsmara lines. We then successfully paired AG-genetics with the offspring. This type of “crossbreeding” within the Bonsmara breed is well documented within the Hartebeestloop herd and these bulls are working on farms across Namibia. For this reason and from time-to-time artificial insemination is still being done with HJS 03-0016 . This bull also performed well in the Arcadia Bonsmara herd. His son, AG 08-0210 has delivered a number of strong bulls for the 2020 AG auction.

HART 17-0007 is bred from HART 11-0058 (click on the sire link above) that was sold to Sernick Bonsmaras. HART 11-0058 performed well in the Hartebeestloop herd. His mother lines delivered exceptional achievers: grandmother on father’s side SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW HART 05-0004, AFC 29 months, ICP 375 days/9 calves. Grandmother on mother’s side VV 06-0084: AFC 24 months, ICP 398 days/8 calves. The bull’s mother HART 12-0216 has a AFC of 17 months (management fault on our side), ICP of 392 days/5 calves and she weans at 47,9% of her body weight. These cows are the foundation on which cattle herds are built.

HART 17-0007 is ‘n well-muscled, medium-frame bull with lots of width, excellent capacity, good spring of rib and great depth throughout the forequarter. He is a TOP PERFORMER with a wean index (95), ADG (114), veld feed conversion (112) and Veld Bull Index of (113). Grass feed efficiency is sure the best way to describe the Kleiber / Veld feed conversion ratio. With a Kleiber index of 116 during the Veld Bull Test HART 17-0007 demonstrated that he is outstanding achiever.

His breeding values are excellent overall. There is sufficient milk (95), good pre-wean (111) and post-wean growth (115), ADG (111) without his mature weight (107) being too high and good reproduction with a scrotal circumference (108).

The adaptability characteristics of HART 17-0007 is of the best. From his thick and mobile neck folds all the way to his long tail, he is a true example of what is needed for profitable farming on the veld. His masculinity is impressive with a strong head, broad jawline, beautiful deepening of colour and a scrotum that hangs perfectly and measuring 41 cm.

HART 17-0007 shows great stud potential and will be regarded by buyers as one of the best bulls on auction. He is definitely one of my favourites on auction and I highly recommend him to any stud breeder. It remains a difficult choice for any breeder to put a bull of this calibre on auction, but the ensuing drought lead to a reduction of the Hartebeestloop cow herd.

Ons het baie goeie sukses gehad deur wyle Hansie Steyn (HJS) diere te paar met Namibiese genetika, veral die Woestyn Bonsmara lyne. Op hierdie nageslag het ons AG-genetika ingebring met groot sukses. Hierdie tipe van “kruisteling” binne die Bonsmara ras is goed opgeteken in die Hartebeestloop kudde en sulke geteelde bulle doen diens regdeur Namibië. Vir die spesifieke rede, word daar nog steeds van tyd-tot-tyd kunsmatige inseminasie gedoen met HJS 03-0016 . Die bul het ook baie goed gedoen in die Arcadia Bonsmara kudde. Sy seun AG 08-0210 het weereens ‘n klomp baie sterk bulle op die 2020 AG veiling.

HART 17-0007 is geteel uit HART 11-0058 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) wat aan Sernick Bonsmaras verkoop is. HART 11-0058 het baie goed gedoen in die Hartebeestloop kudde. Sy moederlyne is hoogpresterend met ouma aan vaderskant SA Stamboek ELITE GOUD KOEI HART 05-0004, OEK 29 mnde, TKP 375 dae/9 kalwers. Ouma aan moederskant VV 06-0084 OEK 24 mnde, TKP 398 dae/8 kalwers. Sy moeder HART 12-0216 se OEK is 17 mnde (bestuursfout aan ons kant), met TKP van 392 dae oor 5 kalwers - en sy speen teen 47,9% van haar liggaamsmassa. Hierdie tipe koeie is die ruggraat van beeskuddes en dra die boer deur die dik en dun tye.

HART 17-0007 is goedbespierde, mediumraam bul met baie breedte, uitstekende kapasiteit, goeie sprong van rib en goeie diepte deur die voorlyf. Hy is ‘n TOP PRESTEERDER met Speenindeks (95), GDT (114), Veldvoeromset (112) en VeldBulindeks van (113). Die engelse term “grass feed efficiency” is sekerlik die beste term om Kleiberindeks/Veldvoeromset te beskryf en met ‘n 116 indeks tydens die VeldBultoets was HART 17-0007 die uitstaande presteerder.

Sy teelwaarde indekse is deur die bank baie goed. Daar is genoeg melk (95), goeie voorspeense (111) en naspeense groeivermoë (115), GDT (111), sonder dat sy Volwasse Gewig (107) te hoog is en goeie reproduksie met skrotumomtrek (108).

Die aanpasbaarheideienskappe van HART 17-0007 is van die heel beste. Van sy los en dik keelvel al die pad tot sy lang stert, is hy ‘n toonbeeld van wat nodig is vir winsgewend boer op die veld. Sy manlikheideienskappe is treffend met sterk kop, breë bek, baie mooi verdonkering en skrotum wat simmetries hang, goed gevorm is en 41 cm meet.

HART 17-0007 vertoon hoë stoetpotensiaal en sal deur baie voornemende kopers beskou word as een van die beste bulle op die veiling. Hy is ook een van my gunsteling bulle op die veiling. Ek kan hom met die grootste vrymoedigheid aanbeveel na enige stoetkudde. Dit bly moeilik vir enige teler om sulke bulle te laat gaan maar, die afgelope paar jare se erge droogtes, het die Hartebeestloop koeikudde redelik verklein.

HART 14-0127 is a medium-frame, “easy-fleshing” bull. His father - BHE 03-0126 comes from the old, but very well-known Fortress lineage of Burkhardt Hermann. His mother is HART 11-0102 and her pedigree includes VV 99-0318 and AG 03-0029/TBR 91-0704. HART 14-0127 is loaded with breeding history.

The cow lineage on his mother’s side shows they are exceptional reproducers and achievers. HART 11-0102 (SA Stud Book ELITE SILVER COW) with a AFC of 23 months, ICP of 400 days/ 6 calves with a wean index of 107 and to top it off, she weans at 52,4% of her body mass. Her mother, VV 06-0098 is a SA Stud Book ELITE GOLDEN COW with an ICP of 381 days/ 9 calves. Both the grandmother and mother scored 8,5 on visual inspection. These cows display beautiful femininity with great udders.

HART 14-0127’s outstanding masculinity will surely catch your eye. He has a solid head with robust eyebrow rims, good width between the eyes and a broad neck with beautiful deepening of colour. The scrotum measures 40,5 cm and is well formed. It has been a long time since I have seen a bull that radiates this much masculinity.

He demonstrates great balance throughout his conformation, excellent body width throughout, great overall capacity and spring of rib as well as beautiful depth throughout the forequarter. His height/length ratio of 1:19 puts him in the long-bull category while he still maintains a strong topline, excellent slope of rump and tail attachment. His great muscling trait means he is packed with meat and can be seen in the beautiful outer and inner thighs, loins and meaty topline.

HART 14-0127 is extremely well-adapted for demanding environments. His coat is gleaming, glossy, thick and loose – pay special attention to the skin folds in the neck area as well as around the throat. His coat hairs are short and gleaming. The rump development is very satisfactory. He has strong legs with good width between the hocks and great claws; this all adds up to a Hartebeestloop Veld Bull Index of 116.

HART 14-0127 delivers well-balanced breeding values as is expected of a medium-frame and “easy fleshing” bull as demonstrated by his great pre-wean (111) and post-wean growth ability (111). He is undoubtedly a TOP PERFORMER with a wean index of 117, ADG index of 108 and Kleiber index of 105. I would like to highlight two breeding indices that is indispensable to ensure profitable farming in dry and tough environments – Cow Index 100 and Maintenance Value 109. His birth direct value index stands at 63 but this does not correlate with his performance and visual display as a calving-ease bull. We have mainly used HART 14-0127 on heifers aged 18 to 22 months. Average birth weight of the calves were 35 kg with no calving problems reported. His father BHE 03-0126 was mainly used on heifers as well. His current weight might be a problem for younger heifers.

HART 14-0127 displays high stud ability and will surely contribute greatly to any herd. He embodies the most important traits for any herd: masculinity, quick ability to reach top condition, "easy- fleshing", full of meat and great conformity. The ongoing drought forced us to move all open heifers to South Africa. With the foot-and-mouth disease outbreak in South Africa these heifers might not be able to return to Namibia. If this was not the case, I would surely have held onto HART 14-0127 a bit longer. He is one of my favourites on auction.

Hier is ‘n mediumraam, “easy-fleshing” bul geteel aan vaderskant uit BHE 03-0126 – al die pad uit die ou, maar baie bekende Fortress lyne van Burkhardt Hermann. Aan moederskant is dit HART 11-0102 wat al die pad teruggaan na VV 99-0318 en AG 03-0029/TBR 91-0704. Daar is ‘n groot klomp Bonsmara geskiedenis in HART 14-0127 se teeling!

Die koeilyne aan moederskant is uitstekende reproduseerders en presteerders met HART 11-0102 (SA Stamboek ELITE SILWER KOEI) met OEK 23 mnde, TKP 400 dae/6 kalwers met speenindeks van 107 en sy speen teen 52.4% van haar liggaamsmassa. Haar moeder VV 06-0098 is ‘n SA Stamboek ELITE GOUE KOEI met TKP van 381 dae oor 9 kalwers. Beide moeder en ouma is visueel 8,5 gepunt en is mooi vroulike koeie met baie goeie uiers en spene.

HART 14-127 se uitstekende manlikheid sal jou eerste opval. Sy kop is baie sterk met sterk oogbanke, goeie breedte tussen die oë, tipiese dik en donker bul nek met pragtige verdonkering. Sy skrotum is goed gevorm en omtrek is 40,5 cm. Ek het lanklaas ‘n bul gesien wat soveel manlikheid uit straal.

Hy vertoon uitstekende balans, baie goeie bouvorm, goeie breedte regdeur, goeie kapasiteit, goeie sprong van rib en mooi diepte deur die voorlyf. Dit is ‘n lang bul met hoogte/lengte verhouding van 1:19 en nog steeds ‘n sterk toplyn en uitstekende kruishelling en stertaanhegting. Sy bespiering is goed en hy is vol vleis – mooi buite en binne dye, lende en kruishellings is ook goed gevul met vleis.

Hy is uitstekend aangepas vir die ekstensiewe toestande. Sy vel is blink, glansend, dik en los– kyk die velvoue in die nek asook die keelvel. Sy hare is kort en blink. Die skofontwikkeling is baie goed. Sy bene is baie sterk – daar is goeie breedte oor die hakke, die kloue is goed en dit alles dra by tot ‘n Hartebeestloop VeldBulindeks van 116.

Sy teelwaarde indekse is goed gebalanseerd en presies wat verwag word van ‘n mediumraam en “easy fleshing” bul met baie goeie voorspeense (111) en naspeengroeivermoë (111). Hy is ‘n TOP PRESTEERDER met Speenindeks (117), GDT (108) en Veldvoeromset (105). Ek lig net 2 teelwaarde indekse uit wat onontbeerlik is vir winsgewende boerdery in droër, ekstensiewe omgewings – Koei Waarde (100) en Onderhoud Waarde (109). Sy geboortedirekte teelwaarde indeks wys 63 en dit stem nie ooreen met sy prestasies en visuele voorkoms as kalwingsgemak bul nie. Ons het hom meerendeels net op verse van 18 tot 22 maande gebruik, gemiddelde geboortemassa van die kalwers was 35 kg en geen kalfprobleme gehad nie. Sy oupa BHE 03-0126 was ook meerendeels net op verse gebruik. Sy huidige gewig mag dalk ‘n probleem wees vir jonger verse.

HART 14-0127 vertoon hoë stoetpotensiaal en is ‘n bul wat baie sal bydra tot enige kudde. Sy manlikheid, vermoë om gou in kondisie te kom, “easy fleshing”, vleiseienskappe en bouvorm is belangrike eienskappe in enige kudde. Die langdurige droogte het ons gedwing het om alle oop verse na die RSA te skuif. Met die RSA Bek-en-Klouseer uitbraak, kan hulle heel waarskynlik nie weer terugkom na Namibië nie. Was dit anders, sou HART 14-0127 beslis nie op die veiling wees nie. Hy is een van my gunstelinge op die veiling!

He is bred from HART 09-0329 (click on the sire link above) - a bull that has left his mark within the Hartebeestloop herd and many other herds throughout Namibia. Mother lineages (matrilineality) remain the corner stone of success within the Hartebeestloop herd. Have a look at the achievements of this bull’s mother line: grandmother on father’s side - HART 06-0096 – AFC of 24 months, ICP 372 days/9 calves; grandmother on mother’s side BHE 02-0199 – AFC of 34 months, ICP 421 days/9 calves while his own mother - HART 08-0192 – has a AFC of 25 months and ICP of 379 days/8 calves. There is magic in the numbers - for the stud breeder it means a bigger selection to choose from and for the commercial farmer it translates into more sales and higher profits. Regardless if your focus is on stud or commercial farming, you need this mother line in your herd.

HART 16-0110 is a medium-frame bull with outstanding conformity, great overall muscling, good width, outer and inner thighs are packed with meat, strong topline, sufficient capacity and excellent length (height/length ratio 1:23). He must surely be the longest bull on auction. We have used him with great success to open heifers and the average birth weight of calves was 36 kg. His slope of rump, tail attachment and underline are all outstanding and includes a perfect sheath / navel flap combination. He is true model of adaptability – beautiful rump, glossy coat and hair, long tail and strong legs with strong claws. Pay special attention to the black pigmentation on his muzzle. His Veldbulindex 109 underlines the fact that he one of the best adapted bulls on auction.

His masculinity traits are one for the books – he proudly carries a strong head, has well-defined eyebrow rims and lower jaw, good width between the eyes and a broad neck with beautiful deepening of coat colour. The scrotum circumference measures 42 cm and hangs perfectly.

You cannot ask for better breeding values – nearly spot on for the breed average for Mature Weight (98) and Shoulder Height (94), Milk index (101), pre- and post-wean growth potential (112) and (118) respectively and ADG of (104).

The ongoing drought has yet again confirmed the following three principles:

  1. Dry, overly-muscled bulls breed the same type of cows and they do not reproduce
  2. Flaccid, under-muscled bulls breed the same type of cows and they cannot maintain conformity
  3. Overall Body Condition and Maintenance Value are the most important driving factors for reproduction and profit under difficult farming conditions.

For the above reasons I am highlighting HART 16-0110’s performance testing data: Eye muscle surface index (104) – an indication of above average musclings; early fat depositioning (102) – the ability to maintain overall condition or to improve quickly on it; and Maintenance Value (100) – a bulls reflection to do more (excel) with less input (expenses). These performance values are further fortified by his Overall Body Condition score on the veld that has remained consistently good. HART 16-0110 is in all regard an exceptional bull. Stud breeders should intend to breed for the meat industry and ultimately produce animals that will put more money in the pockets of their clients. Use bulls with high stud potential, outstanding performances on the veld, low input costs and above average growth ability.

Moederlyne bly die hoeksteen van sukses van die Hartebeestloop kudde en kyk gerus na die prestasies van sy moederlyne – Ouma vaderskant HART 06-0096 OEK 24 mnde, TKP 372 dae/9 kalwers, Ouma moederskant BHE 02-0199 OEK 34 mnde, TKP 421 dae/9 kalwers en sy moeder HART 08-0192 OEK 25 mnde TKP 379 dae/8 kalwers. “There is a Magic in Numbers” – vir die stoetboer beteken dit ‘n groter getal vir seleksie en vir die kommersiële boer beteken dit meer verkope en meer geld. Stoet of kommersieël – jy benodig hierdie moederlyne!

HART 16-0110 is ‘n mediumraam bul met uitstekende bouvorm, goeie bespiering, goeie breedte, vol binne en buite dye, sterk toplyn, genoegsame kapasiteit en uitstekende lengte (hoogte/lengte verhouding 1:23). Hy is sekerlik die langste bul op die veiling. Ons het hom met groot sukses gebruik om verse oop te maak en die gemiddelde geboortegewig van die kalwers is 36 kg. Sy kruishelling, stertaanhegting en onderlyn is baie goed – perfekte skede/naelvel kombinasie. Hy is ‘n toonbeeld van aanpasbaarheid – baie mooi skof, blink van vel en haar, lang stert, sterk bene met baie goeie kloue en los vel. Kyk ook na die swart pigment op die neusspieël. Hy is een van die bes aangepasde bulle op die veiling met ‘n Veldbulindeks van 109.

Sy manlikheideienskappe is uit die boeke – sterk kop wat hy mooi dra, sterk oogbanke en bek, goeie breedte tussen die oë en dik bulnek met mooi verdonkering. Skrotumomtrek is 42 cm en dit hang baie mooi.

Sy teelwaarde indekse kan nie beter nie – naby rasgemiddeld vir Volwasse Gewig (98) en Skouerhoogte (94), melkwaarde (101) voorspeense en naspeense groeivermoë (112) en (118) onderskeidelik en GDT (104).

Die uitgerekte droogte het die volgende 3 waarhede weereens bevestig:

  1. Droë, oorbespierde bulle teel sulke koeie en hulle reproduseer nie.
  2. Pap, onderbespierde bulle teel sulke koeie en hulle kan nie konstitusie handhaaf nie.
  3. Liggaamskondisie en in effek Onderhoud Waarde is die heel belangrikste drywer van reproduksie en wins in ekstensiewe boerderye.

He is bred from HART 11-0050 (click on the sire link above) and HART 07-0177. His mother performs well with an AFC of 26 months, ICP of 363 days/8 calves. She weans her calves at an average of 46% of her body weight. These are outstanding results for a cow that has consistently produced and reproduced over the past 8 years despite very low rainfall. It is definitely worth the effort to apply a strict selection criterion for low input cost, adapted and fertile animals. With the extreme drought in our area, natural selection has taken over and the farmer’s only job is to divide animals between the keep-herd and the elimination-herd.

HART 17-0057 is a medium-frame bull that should be used on cows. His conformity is good with enough muscling and structural width. Furthermore, he offers good structural capacity, nice spring of rib and depth in the forequarter. His adaptability is of the best with a super smooth and glossy coat and hair, lots of extra loose skin folds in the neck - and dewlap - area. A glossy, loose and thick skin coat/skin combination is important for heat regulation and resistance against ticks. His Veld Bull Index (107), Maintenance Index (104), early fat deposition (126) and good pre-wean (102) and post-wean growth ability reflects his excellent adaptability traits.

HART 17-0057 will perform well in a weaner and ox production system. His offspring should grow satisfactory on the veld and reach top condition quickly. Farmer’s that wish to establish a good frame type, good adaptability and above average growth ability in their herd should seriously consider this bull.

Sy doen goed vir ons met OEK 26 mnde, TKP van 363 dae/8 kalwers en sy speen haar kalwers teen gemiddeld 46% van haar liggaamsmassa. Hierdie is goeie syfers vir koeie wat die afgelope 8 jaar reproduseer en produseer met ondergemiddelde reënvalsyfers. Die waarde om konstant en streng te selekteer vir lae insetkoste, aangepasde en vrugbare diere is definitief die moeite werd. Met die huidige droogtetoestande in ons omgewing, het natuurlike seleksie heeltemal oorgeneem en is die boer se rol slegs om die diere in hou-troppe en uitskottroppe te verdeel.

HART 17-0057 is ‘n mediumraam bul wat net op koeie gebruik moet word. Sy bouvorm is goed met genoegsame bespiering en breedte, baie mooi kapasiteit, goeie sprong van rib en ‘n diep voorlyf. Opvallend is sy baie goeie aanpasbaarheideienskappe met seepgladde en glansende vel, kort en blink haarkleed, baie ekstra los velle in die nek/keelvel gedeelte. Die velvoue is breed wat aanduiding is van ‘n dik en los vel. Boere besef die waarde van ‘n blink, los en dik vel in hitte regulering en relatiewe weerstand van die dier teen bosluisbyte weens die goeie bloedtoevoer. Sy VeldBulindeks (107), Onderhoud Waarde (104), vroeë vetneerlegging (126) en goeie voorspeense (102) en naspeense (106) groeivermoë wys sy aanpasbaarheid en prestasie op die veld.

HART 17-0057 sal goed presteer in beide speenkalf en os produksiestelsels. Sy nageslag behoort goed te groei op die veld en behoort vinnig in kondisie (slag gereed) te kom. Boere wat raamtipe, goeie aanpasbaarheid en bogemiddelde groeivermoë in hulle kudde wil inbring, kan gerus na hom kyk!

When HART 16-0375 stands against the Kalahari dune, then farmers get a “feel good” feeling – you can immediately see that this bull has been bred for tough and extensive conditions. His pedigree includes HART 09-0014 links up with Kruger Bonsmaras; on his mother’s side is HART 13-0028 that goes all the way back to AG 02-0251 (Arcadia Bonsmaras). HART 16-0375 also worked on Streicher Coetzee’s farm, Hochfeldstreek Bonsmaras and his calves are outstanding.

HART 16-0375 is a medium-frame bull with exceptional conformity, great overall muscling, beautiful capacity and general width and lots of depth throughout the forequarter. He is a typical early mature bull with good overall balance and he moves with ease. His topline is strong, slope of rump and tail attachment is very good. Legs, claws and width across the hocks are great. I would however recommend that he is only used on cows – he is a broad bull with strong outer thighs and nice muscling.

His masculinity is impressive – head is strong, good width between the eyes, well developed eyebrow ridges, beautiful deepening of colour and an ideal scrotum measuring 40 cm. His calves inherited the strong, proud head.

He has excellent adaptability traits – great rump development, outstanding quality coat and hair with thick, loose skinfolds. His underline is clean with a good sheath/navel combination. HART 16-0375’s breeding indices is consistently satisfactory with sufficient pre-wean (118) and post-wean (116) growth, milk (97), ADG (99), height/length ration of 1:21, Maintenance Value of (101) and a Veld Bull Index of 106.

I often get to see how the early mature type of bulls perform all over Namibia. The bull’s frame size however needs to be augmented by adaptability, structural conformity and meaningful breeding values as well as a high libido.

HART 16-0375 is surely one of the star bulls on auction. He is a great example of what Bonsmara bulls in Namibia should breed and look like. If you want to improve width, muscling, excellent meat traits and masculine heads with in your herd – without compromising structural conformity, phenotypical efficiency or any other visual characteristic – then look closely at HART 16-0375.

Sy teling is HART 09-0014 wat al die pad terug gaan na Kruger Bonsmaras en aan moederskant HART 13-0028 wat terug gaan na AG 02-0251 (Arcadia Bonsmaras). HART 16-0375 het ook diens gedoen by Streicher & Hella Coetzee van Hochfeldstreek Bonsmaras en sy kalwers lyk uitstekend.

HART 16-0375 is ‘n mediumraam bul met uitstekende bouvorm, baie goeie bespiering, mooi kapasiteit, goeie breedte en baie diepte deur die voorlyf. Hy is ‘n tipiese vroeër ryp bul met baie goeie balans en hy beweeg gemaklik. Toplyn is sterk, kruishelling en stertaanhegting is baie goed, Bene, kloue en breedte oor die hakke is baie goed. Ek sal hom aanbeveel vir gebruik op koeie alleenlik – hy is baie breed met baie sterk buitedye en goeie bespiering.

Opvallend is sy sterk manlikheid – kop is baie sterk, goeie breedte tussen die oë, goed ontwikkelde oogbanke, uitstekende verdonkering en perfekte skrotum wat 40 cm meet. Hy het hierdie sterk koppe by sy kalwers geteel.

Hy het uitstekende aanpasbaarheidseienskappe - goeie skofontwikkeling, uitstaande kwaliteit vel en haar met dik en loshangende vel. Sy onderlyn is mooi met baie goeie skede/naelvel kombinasie. Sy teelwaarde indekse is ook regdeur goed met genoeg voorspeense (118) en naspeense (116) groei, melk (97), GDT (99), hoogte/lengte verhouding van 1:21, Onderhoud Waarde van (101) en Veldbulindeks van 106.

Ek sien gereeld hoe hierdie vroeër ryp tipe bulle orals in Namibië presteer. Die raamtipe moet egter ondersteun word met aanpasbaarheid, strukturele korrektheid, sinvolle teelwaardes en hoë libido.

HART 16-0375 is sekerlik een van die uitskieterbulle op die veiling! Hy is ‘n baie goeie voorbeeld van hoe Bonsmara bulle in Namibië moet lyk en teel. Indien jy breedte, bespiering, baie goeie vleiseienskappe en manlike koppe in jou kudde wil verbeter, sonder om op strukturele korrektheid, fenotipiese doeltreffenheid of enige visuele eienskap te kompromiteer – kyk gerus na HART 16-0375.

He is bred from HART 11-0050 (click on the sire link above) that was used extensively in our Hartebeestloop herd to reinforce growth ability in the herd. Some words of wisdom on growth: Do not focus too much on the single trait of growth ability. It pushes birth weights upwards and subsequently increases input costs. Growth comes at a price: great growers will usually display heavier Mature Weights and their grazing needs will be a lot higher. They consume vast quantities of grass to reach their heavier weights but should be placed in perspective as we get paid for weight and nothing else.

You must understand the application and use of your bulls. It is important to combine good growth ability with other important economical traits such as conformity, adaptability, ease of movement, overall balance and high fertility.

HART 17-0059 must only be used on cows. He scored 3.5 for conformity and has excellent muscling and overall build. I would like to highlight a couple of breeding values indicative of his ability to produce heavy weaners and great oxen. Remember, the average breeding index of the Bonsmara breed is 100. A breeding value of 135 for example translates into 35% above the breed average.

  1. Pre-wean (135) and post-wean (130) growth ability
  2. ADG (118), Feed Conversion Ratio Index (119) and Veld conversion Ratio Index (112)
  3. Mature Weight (126) and Shoulder Height (110)
  4. Eye Muscle Surface Area (118) and Marbling (113)
  5. Dress-mass percentage (118) and Carcass Production (124)
  6. Calve Growth Index (135)

Despite these excellent scores he is not a late-mature, larger-frame type animal. His Veld Bull Index of 100 shows that he is on breed average and that he is adapted for the veld. His adaptability is great and he is a model of masculinity with a strong head an scrotum that hangs perfectly and measures 41,5 cm. HART 17-0059 comes from excellent mother lines and both his grandmothers – and his mother HART 11-0248 – have excellent production and reproduction scores.

HART 17-0059 is an expert grower. If you want to improve weaner and oxen growth and weight gain on the veld without compromising other important traits (except birth weight) then HART 17-0059 is the bull for you. He must however only be used on cows.

Hy is geteel uit HART 11-0050 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) wat sterk gebruik is om groeivermoë in die Hartebeestloop kudde te vestig. Net ‘n paar woorde oor groei in vleisbeeste. Moenie te veel klem lê op groeivermoë as enkeleienskap nie. Dit verhoog jou geboortegewigte en ook jou insetkostes. Groei kom nie verniet nie – goeie groeiers het gewoonlik swaarder Volwasse Massa – en dit beteken dat hulle weidingsbehoefte groter is. Hulle vreet meer gras om daardie gewigte te bereik en hulle genetiese groeipotensiaal ten volle te benut. Bogenoemde moet egter verreken word teen die feit dat ons betaal word vir gewig – en basies niks anders nie!

Jy moet die aanwending van jou bulle ken en diè met swaarder geboortegewigte op koeie gebruik. Dit is belangrik om goeie groeivermoë te kombineer met ander ekonomiese belangrike eienskappe soos strukturele korrektheid, aanpasbaarheid, goeie loopvermoë, balans, goeie bouvorm en hoë vrugbaarheid.

HART 17-0059 moet net op koeie gebruik word. Hy is ‘n raamtipe 3,5 bul met uitstekende bespiering en baie goeie bouvorm. Ek lig ‘n paar teelwaarde indekse uit wat die aanwending van hom om swaar speenkalwers en baie goeie osse te produseer, uit: Onthou – die gemiddelde teelwaarde indeks van die Bonsmara ras is 100. ‘n Teelwaarde Indeks van 135 beteken dus 35% beter as rasgemiddeld.

  1. Voorspeense (135) en naspeense (130) groeivermoë
  2. GDT (118), Voeromsetverhouding (119) en Weidingomsetverhouding (112)
  3. Volwasse Massa (126) en Skouerhoogte (110)
  4. Oogspieroppervlakte (118) en marmering (113)
  5. Uitslagpersentasie (118) en Vleisopbrengs (124)
  6. Kalf Groei Waarde (135)

Nieteenstaande die vuurwarm syfers en prestasies, is hy nie ‘n laat ryp, groot raam dier nie. Sy VeldBulindeks van 100 wys dat hy op die groepgemiddeld is – hy is aangepas vir veldtoestande. Sy aanpasbaarheid is baie goed – kom kyk gerus na die bul in lewende lywe. Hy is ‘n toonbeeld van manlikheid met sterk kop en ‘n skrotum wat perfek hang en 41,5 cm meet. HART 17-0059 kom uit baie goeie moederlyne met beide oumas en sy ma HART 11-0248 wat baie goeie produksie en reproduksie syfers het.

HART 17-0059 is ‘n spesialis groeier. As jy speengewigte en os “groei en gewigstoename” op die veld wil verbeter in jou kudde sonder om enige ander belangrike eienskap (behalwe geboortegewig) te benadeel, moet jy na HART 17-0059 kyk. Jy moet hom egter net op koeie gebruik.

He comes from the highly fertile and best mother lines at Hartebeestloop. His grandmother on father’s side is BHE 04-0201, a SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW with a wean index 103/10 calves; his grandmother on his mother’s side is EI 99-0289 with AFC 30 months, ICP 404 days/8 calves and wean index 106/8 calves. His mother VBB 08-0092 is a SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW with AFC 31 months, ICP 377 days/8 calves and wean index 107/8 calves. There is ample milk in these mother lineages. There a many believes surrounding milk supply in the industry but the fact remains: increased muscling leads to lower milk production and reduced fertility. It is always a good idea to fall back onto a cow herd that delivers ample milk and increased fertility when a herd starts leaning over to too much muscling.

HART 17-0042 is a medium-frame bull with good conformity and lots of width that runs straight through from his thighs, over the topline and rump. He has good overall capacity, depth throughout the forequarter and beautiful muscling. Sufficient muscling correlates with better dress-mass percentage and carcass production and this is exactly what this bull’s breeding values of (104) and (114) show for ox-producing characteristics. Weaner – and ox-farmers should look at the following index values: pre-wean (119) and post-wean (112) growth ability is outstanding; ADG (108), Feed Conversion Index (112) and Calve Growth Value is (119). Here we are dealing with a bull that will bring excellent growth to your herd and you can expect him to deliver heavy weaners and oxen that will excel on the veld.

His Birth Weight (94) and Height (94) breeding indices are all within the breed norm. Further he displays beautiful masculine traits with a strong head, gorgeous deepening of colour, alert attitude and scrotum measuring 45 cm and scrotum breeding value of (126). His adaptability and coat is excellent, and complimented by a long tail and great rump development.

HART 17-0042 is phenotypically efficient, shows structural conformity, bred from top performing mother lines, very masculine and offers great growth ability and feed conversion proficiency. There is surely a place for this bull in every herd!

Daar is soveel persepsies oor wanneer is melk genoeg in vleisbeeste – die feit bly staan dat hoe meer bespiering ingebring word, hoe laer word melk (en ook vrugbaarheid) afgedruk. Dit is baie goed om te kan terugval na ‘n koeikudde wat genoeg melk en hoë vrugbaarheid het wanneer tè veel na die bespiering kant oorgeneig is.

HART 17-0075 was a TOP ACHIEVER during performance testing and delivered the following: Wean Index (111), ADG (105) and Veld Feed Conversion Ratio (101). His breeding values for pre-wean growth (99) and post-wean growth (102) together with his ADG (104) shows that he can be used on cows as well. HART 17-0075 is a typical “ALL ROUNDER” bull that can be used on any herd of heifers or cows.

He demonstrates excellent adaptability and performs well on the veld. His great muscling trait (eye muscle surface area index of 105), complements his early fat deposition index of 118. His weight gain and conditioning score while on the veld during the difficult and dry Veld Bull Test period was consistently above average and he ends with a Veld Bull Index score of 108. Visually he is a strong bull, with studry hump development, smooth and glossy coat, mobile dewlap and strong legs.

HART 17-0075 flaunts outstanding secondary masculinity traits – strong head, head-up attitude with beautiful deepening of coat colour and a well formed scrotum of 40,5 cm. He has a small white patch infront of the scrotum.

He is bred from HART 11-0050 (click on the sire link above) and HART 06-0096. She was one of the top performing cows in the herd with a AFC 24 months and ICP of 372/9 calves. She weans her 9 calves at 48,6% of her weight. We sold an outstanding son of hers, HART 14-0385 to Werner en Anita Schroër.

He is a calving ease bull with enough growth ability that can also be used on cows. He is a so called “safe bull” to use in any herd. Consider him if you want to open your heifers without any problems or if he has to stand-in for any of the other bulls in your cow herd.

‘n Mediumraam, kalfgemak bul wat op beide verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Hy vertoon goeie bespiering, goeie breedte, sterk toplyn, mooi kapasiteit en goeie diepte deur die voorlyf. Alhoewel sy bespiering goed is, vertoon hy glad en soepel met geen oormatige definisie van spier of oormatige knoppe by die voorarms nie.

HART 17-0075 was ‘n TOP PRESTEERDER tydens prestasietoetsing met Speenindeks (111), GDT (105) en Veldvoeromset (101). Sy teelwaarde indekse vir voorspeense groei (99) en naspeense groei (102) tesame met GDT (104) wys dat hy ook gerus op koeie gebruik kan word. Hy is nie ‘n kalfgemak bul met ondergemiddelde groeivermoë nie. HART 17-0075 is ‘n tipiese “ALL ROUNDER” bul wat orals op die plaas en op enige trop verse of koeie gebruik kan word.

Hy wys uitstekende aanpasbaarheid en doen baie goed op die veld. Sy goeie bespiering (oogspieroppervlakte teelwaarde indeks van 105), kombineer baie goed met ‘n vroeë vetneerlegging van 118. Dit is altyd ‘n bonus as goeie bespiering ook komplimenteer word deur diere wat gou vet aansit, in kondisie kom en die kondisie hou, selfs in moeiliker tye. Sy gewigstoename en kondisietelling op die veld tydens ‘n moeilike en droeë VeldBultoets tydperk, was altyd bogemiddeld en hy eindig met ‘n VeldBulindeks van 108. Dit wil gedoen wees. Visueël vertoon hy ook baie goed met sterk skofontwikkeling, baie gladde en blink vel en haar, lekker los vel met goeie keelvel en sterk bene.

HART 17-0075 vertoon goeie sekondêre manlikheideienskappe – sterk kop, kop-op houding met goeie verdonkering en ‘n goed gevormde skrotum wat 40,5 cm meet. Hy het ‘n klein wit vlek net voor die skrotum.

Hy is geteel uit HART 11-0050 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) en HART 06-0096. Sy was een van die top koeie in die kudde met OEK 24 mnde, TKP van 372 dae/9 kalwers. Sy speen haar 9 kalwers teen 48,6% van haar eie liggaamsmassa. Ons het ‘n uitstekende seun HART 14-0385 van haar aan Werner en Anita Schroër verkoop.

Hy is ‘n kalfgemak bul met genoegsame groeivermoë wat ook op koeie gebruik kan word. Baie veilige bul wat in enige kudde gebruik kan word. Kyk gerus na hom as jy verse wil oopmaak sonder probleme en ook as hy moet instaan vir enige van jou ander bulle by die koeitroppe.

HART 17-0189 will immediately catch your eye at the auction. Outstanding medium-frame size bull that offers calving ease and can be used on heifers and cows. Being a long bull, he offers great conformity, very good muscling, good overall breath and thighs, great capacity and depth in the forequarter. His topline, slope of rump, tail attachments legs and claws are faultless. He has great balance and ease of movement, two crucial traits for these animals growing up between - and walking over- the dunes. I cannot fault him on his structural integrity and build.

HART 17-0189’s excellent adaptability traits are obvious – he offers some of the best coat and hair quality on auction. Have a close look at the loose, thick and substantial dewlap. He definitely demonstrates all the necessary characteristics to perform on the veld – enough muscling to remain in top condition (eye muscle surface area 111), early fat deposit index (154), grass feed efficiency (104), Maintenance Index (121) and is a top performer during the Veld Bull Test (113). Cattle should be able to perform during natural grazing circumstances and farmers want the establish these traits within their herds. You can only achieve this if you have the right bull for the job and implement the correct selection criteria.

His secondary masculinity traits are well developed. Alert bull with a head held high attitude, great eyebrow rims, broad head, beautiful deepening of coat colour and a perfectly formed scrotum that hangs symmetrically. His navel/sheath combination is perfect.

His breeding values are consistently satisfactory – low on birth weight/calving ease (104), great pre-wean (104) and post-wean (112) growth index, above average ADG (106), great meat traits that reflect positively on dress-mass percentage (116) and carcass yield (120). Pay special attention to his 3 selection index values – Cow Index (107), Growth Index (110) and Production Index (108). You should never base your decision solely on breeding values. When the breeding values and visual appearance complement each other as in HART 17-0189’s case then you have covered all of your bases.

HART 17-0189 is filled with stud potential. Serious stud breeders and commercial farmers will not be able to overlook him. After all, has been said and done, he is surely one of my favourites on auction.

He is a strong, medium-frame bull that can be used on cows and heifers. We often use to the term “ALL ROUNDER” that refers to a specific bull that can be used on cows and heifers. The term “MULTI-PURPOSE” refers to the bull’s growth ability to produce good heifers and oxen. In summary, some calving-ease bulls are not only intended to open heifers with and can offer a lot more. HART 17-0182 is this type of bull!

HART 17-0182 has excellent conformity and overall balance. He had good width throughout, nice length and capacity as well as great depth in the forequarter area. He is structurally sound with a strong topline, good slope of rump and nice tail attachment. He is packed with meat and will perform well under difficult circumstances.

His masculinity is impressive – strong head, well-developed and strong eyebrow rdiges, good width between the eyes and darker coat colour in the neck area. The scrotum hangs perfectly and measures 41 cm.

You cannot ask for more when it comes to his adaptability. He displays an excellent coat and hair, long tail, nice hump development, clean underline and strong legs. These traits all combine and allows him to excel on the veld with a Veld Bull Index of (105), Maintenance Cost Breeding Index (121), Feed Conversion Ratio of (118) and Early Fat Deposition of (157). Everything that is needed for increased productivity and reproductivity is well above average.

Birth weight / calving ease (101), pre-wean (93) and post-wean (108) growth index, good ADG of (113), feed conversion ratio of (108), milk index (123), eye muscle surface area of (101), dress-mass percentage (106), carcass yield (114) and the 3 most important selection criteria: Cow Index (107), Growth Index (118) and Production Index (110).

HART 17-0182 ought to go to a stud breeder or serious commercial farmer that is determined to achieve genetic advancement and greater profits in his / her herd. He is prime example of what we expect the modern Namibian Bonsmara to look like.

‘n Sterk mediumraam, kalfgemak bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Ons verwys gereeld na die term “ALL ROUNDER” wat beteken dat die spesifieke bul op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Die term “MULTI-PURPOSE” wat ook gereeld gebruik word, beteken dat daar genoegsame groeivermoë in die bul is om beide goeie speenkalwers en osse te produseer. In kort – sekere kalfgemak bulle is nie nèt om verse oop te maak nie – daar is baie meer in die bul! HART 17-0182 is so ‘n tipe bul.

HART 17-0182 het baie goeie bouvorm en uitstekende balans. Daar is goeie breedte, mooi lengte, goeie kapasiteit en diepte deur die voorlyf. Hy is struktureel korrek met sterk toplyn, goeie kruishelling en stertaanhegting. Hy dra ook baie vleis en is ‘n tipiese Hartebeestloop moeilike wêreld, “easy fleshing” en vroegryp bul wat uitstekend sal doen onder veldtoestande.

Sy manlikheid is baie goed – sterk kop wat hy hoog dra, sterk oogbanke, breed tussen die oë met dik en donker nek en skrotum wat mooi hang en 41 cm in omtrek meet. Hy maak ‘n goeie eerste indruk met sy manlikheid.

Jy kan nie beter aanpasbaarheid kry nie. Van die uitstekende vel en haar, lang stert, goeie skof, skoon onderlyn, sterk bene – en dit is hoekom hy so uitstekend doen op die veld met ‘n Veldbul Ekonomiese Indeks van (105), Onderhoudskoste Teelwaarde Indeks van (121), weidingomsetverhouding van (118) en Vroeë vetneerlegging van (157). Kyk mooi na bogenoemde waardes – alles wat nodig is vir hoë produksie en reproduksie op die veld, is ver bogemiddeld.

Jammer oor die klomp teelwaarde indekse – maar dit is nie elke dag dat jy ‘n bul teel wat visueël top gepunt word en ook ondersteun word met sy prestasies in die vorm van teelwaarde indekse nie.

Geboortedirek/kalfgemak (101), voorspeense (93) en naspeense (108) groeivermoë, goeie GDT van (113), voeromsetverhouding (108), melkwaarde (123), oogspieroppervlakte (101), uitslagpersentasie (106), Vleisopbrengs (114) en die 3 belangrike seleksie indekse is Koei Waarde (107), Groei Waarde (118) en Produksie Waarde (110).

HART 17-0182 behoort na ‘n stoetkudde of ernstige kommersiele boer te gaan wat determineerd is om vinnige genetiese vordering en groter wins in die kudde te maak. Hy is ‘n goeie voorbeeld van hoe die moderne Namibiese Bonsmara moet lyk en presteer.

He is bred from FCT 11-0285 and HART 12-0150. She is a SA Stud Book 4-STAR cow with exemplary breeding values: AFC of 24 months, ICP of 361 days/6 calves, with a wean index of 108/5 calves and she weans at 44,9% of her body weight. Her mother, HART 07-0078 was a SA Stud Book ELITE GOLD COW with AFC of 26 months, ICP of 349 days/10 calves and wean index of 101. Also consider the excellent results of his grandmother on father’s side – top cow FCT 06-0069 from Kit Thompson.

The Bonsmara is a mother lineage breed and that it where is all starts for the bulls. It is thus important to understand the achievements of the mother lines when looking at Bonsmara bulls. It is the value within the achievements of the Bonsmara cows that attracts the farmers to the breed.

HART 17-0097 is a medium-frame bull with outstanding breeding indices:

  1. Pre-wean (115) and post-wean (120) growth ability for heavier weaners and oxen that will grow well on the veld.
  2. Milk value index of (109) for sufficient milk supply transmitted to the female offspring which in turn delivers good weaners.
  3. An excellent Feed Conversion Ratio (111), ADG of (123) and Veld Feed Conversion ratio of (119) – efficiently convert feed and grass into meat and mass.
  4. Great combination of muscling with eye muscle surface area at (119) and early fat deposition (126). Body Condition Score is the beginning and end of profitable cattle farming. His Veld Bull Index is (111) and his Conditioning Index is (110) during the testing period under very dry and difficult conditions.
  5. For Meatco and oxen farmers – Dress-mass percentage of (122) and Carcass Production of (125).
  6. The 3 most important selection criteria for Bonsmaras: Cow Index (115), Growth Index (127) and Production Index (120).

The worth of a bull is however not solely dependant on performance testing and breeding values. HART 17-0097 is a beautifully muscled bull with good conformity, nice width throughout, strong topline as well as nice capacity and spring of rib. He is packed with meat and well-filled in the loins, slope of rump as well as in the outer and inner thighs. His adaptability traits are excellent – very smooth and glossy coat with broad skin folds. Outstanding hump development with strong legs and good claws, mobility ease and good balance all contribute to his easy movement across the dunes.

I would have preferred a slightly more prominent and stronger head but his secondary masculinity traits are well developed. Gradual deepening of coat colour is present and the scrotum is beautifully formed and hangs symmetrically. HART 17-0097 is an extra-ordinary bull and will perform well under trying veld conditions. I can therefore recommend him with the greatest peace of mind for weaner and ox production systems as well as for well planned crossbreeding systems. If you consider his conformity, width, capacity, high milk index and adaptability then he should also breed good replacement heifers.

Hy is geteel uit FCT 11-0285 en HART 12-0150. Sy is ‘n SA Stamboek 4-STER koei met baie goeie syfers – OEK 24 mnde, TKP 361 dae/6 kalwers, met speenindeks van 108/5 kalwers en sy speen teen 44,9% van haar liggaamsmassa. Haar ma HART 07-0078 was ‘n SA Stamboek ELITE GOUD KOEI met OEK 26 mnde, TKP 349 dae/10 kalwers met speenindeks van 101. Kyk gerus ook na die uitstekende data van sy ouma aan vaderskant – top koei FCT 06-0069 uit die Kit Thompson stal.

Dit help nie om ‘n bulbeskrywing/bulevaluering vir ‘n veiling te doen as jy nie die moederlyne se prestasies ken nie. Die Bonsmara is ‘n moederlyn ras en dit is waar alles begin. Dit is eintlik die waarde en prestasie van die Bonsmara koei wat soveel boere na die Bonsmara ras aantrek.

HART 17-0097 is ‘n mediumraam bul met uitstaande teelwaarde indekse:

  1. Voorspeense (115) en naspeense (120) groeivermoë vir swaar speenkalwers en osse wat goed en swaar uitgroei op die veld.
  2. Melkwaarde (109) vir genoeg melk aan sy vroulike nageslag om op hulle beurt weer goeie speenkalwers te produseer.
  3. Uitstekende voeromsetverhouding (111), GDT (123) en Weidingomset (119) – sit voer en gras baie effektief om in vleis en gewig.
  4. Baie goeie kombinasie van bespiering met oogspieroppervlakte (119) en vroeë vetneerlegging (126) – “Body Condition Score” is die Alpha en Omega van winsgewende boerbeeste. Sy VeldBulindeks is (111) en sy kondisietelling indeks is (110) tydens die toetsperiode onder moeilike omstandghede.
  5. Vir Meatco en die osboere – Uitslagpersentasie (122) en Vleisopbrengs (125).
  6. Die 3 belangrike seleksie indekse vir Bonsmaras: Koei waarde (115), Groei Waarde (127) en Produksie Waarde (120).

Die waarde van bulle word egter nie deur net prestasietoetsing en teelwaarde indekse bepaal nie. HART 17-0097 is ‘n goed bespierde bul met goeie bouvorm, mooi breedte, sterk toplyn, goeie kapasiteit en sprong van rib. Hy dra baie vleis en is goed gevul in die lendes, kruishelling en vertoon goeie binne en buite dye. Sy aanpasbaarheidseienskappe is uitstekend ontwikkel – baie gladde en blink vel met breë velvoue en kort haar wat blink. Die keelvel sny bietjie op in die nekgedeelte, Goeie skofontwikkeling met sterk bene en goeie kloue, gemaklike loopvermoë en goeie balans maak dat hy in die duine goed beweeg.

Ek sou graag die kop sterker wou sien alhoewel al die ander sekondêre manlikheidseienskappe goed ontwikkel is. Verdonkering is goed, skrotum is mooi gevorm en hang simmetries.

HART 17-0097 is ‘n baie goeie bul en sal uitstekend presteer onder veldtoestande. Ek kan hom met groot gerustheid aanbeveel vir speenkalf en os produksiestelsels – asook in ‘n goed beplande kruisteelstelsel. As jy na sy bouvorm, breedte, goeie kapasiteit, hoë melkwaarde en aanpasbaarheid kyk, behoort hy ook baie goeie vervangingsverse te teel. Hierdie eienskappe is belangrik vir vroulike diere om onder veldtoestande te presteer.

Her performance data is good: AFC of 31 months, ICP of 377 days over 4 calves and wean index of 100/4 calves. She weans her 4 calves at 59,6% of her body weight – true cow efficiency. We expect this type of data from a heifer or a first cow, and not from a cow that has weaned 4 calves already.

HART 17-0087 is a medium-frame bull with excellent adaptability traits. Pay special attention to his thick glossy coat. The coat is thick, loose and ends in a beautiful dewlap. He display good hump development, long tail, strong legs and a clean underline. He does tend a bit more towards the Indicus type Bonsmara and this is exactly what we strive to breed for farmers in extensive veld conditions. He is slightly lighter in colour which is ideal for heat tolerance and reflection of infra-red rays.

He demonstrates good conformity and musculature, strong topline, nice mid-piece and spring of rib and beautiful depth throughout the forequarter. His breeding values are in balance with his pre-wean and post-wean growth (104) and (107) respectively, ADG (106) and milk value of (99). Most of his breeding indices are on breed average or mildly better and that is exactly what we are looking for.

HART 17-0087 offers good masculinity with a strong head, well developed eyebrow ridges, beautiful deepening of colour and a well-formed scrotum that hangs symmetrically and measures 40 cm.

HART 17-0087 is the perfect example of the type of animals we should farm with. After many years of farming, farmers know exactly what type of animals will perform on the Namibian veld. This is very often animals with Bos Indicus traits mixed with the best characteristics of the Bos Taurus . We at Hartebeestloop regard this bull highly and he should go to a serious stud breeder.

Hy vertoon goeie skofontwikkeling, lang stert, sterk bene en skoon onderlyn. Hy neig definitief na die meer Indicus tipe Bonsmara en dit is wat ons graag wil teel vir boer onder ekstensiewe veldtoestande. Hy is nie donkerrooi van kleur soos baie Bonsmaras nie, maar is ‘n ligter skakering van rooi wat die hitte en intensiteit van die infrarooi strale baie beter kan beheer en reflekteer.

Hy vertoon goeie bouvorm met goeie bespiering, sterk toplyn, goeie middelstuk en sprong van rib asook mooi diepte deur die voorlyf. Sy teelwaarde indekse is baie goed in balans met voorspeense en naspeense groei (104) en (107) onderskeidelik, GDT (106) en melk (99). Meeste van sy teelwaarde indeks is op rasgemiddeld of matig beter en dit is presies wat ons soek.

HART 17-0087 vertoon goeie manlikheid met sterk kop, goeie oogbanke mooi verdonkering en ‘n goedgevormde skrotum wat mooi hang en 40 cm meet.

HART 17-0087 is vir my ‘n baie goeie voorbeeld van die tipe diere wat ons in Namibië mee moet boer. Na baie jare se boer en teling weet boere presies watter tipe diere onder Namibiese veldtoestande goed presteer. Dit is diere met ‘n goeie skoot Bos Indicus eienskappe maar, ook die beste eienskappe van Bos Taurus beeste daarmee kombineer. Dit weerspieël die aanvanklike ras samestelling van die Bonsmara. Ek en die beesmanne op Hartebeestloop slaan die bul baie hoog aan! Hy behoort na ‘n ernstige stoetteler te gaan.

HART 17-0110 doen baie goed in die opsig met ‘n uitstekende kwaliteit vel en haarkleed – hy blink in die son en die vel is dik met ’n loshangende keelvel. Die skof is sterk, stert is lank, bene en kloue is baie goed en hy beweeg baie gemaklik in die dik sand en oor die duine. Jy kry dadelik die indruk dat hy goed aangepas is vir sy omgewing en dat hy orals sal aan pas. Waarheen hy ookal gaan, dit sal sekerlik ‘n “makliker” omgewing wees as waarin hy groot geword het! Hy is ‘n tipiese lae insetkoste bul met Onderhoud Waarde (123) en VeldBulindeks van (100). As jy die regte raamtipe, lae insetkoste en goed aangepasde beeste wil teel, gebruik HART 17-0110.

Jou wins is in die aantal kalwers wat ‘n bul oor sy leeftyd verwek. Manlikheid en hoë libido is dus belangrik. Kyk sy sterk kop, wakker oë, goed ontwikkelde oogbanke, mooi breedte tussen die oë, goeie verdonkering in die nek en oor voorlyf met ‘n sterk en dik bulnek. Sy onderlyn is skoon met ‘n baie goeie naelvel/skede kombinasie en die skrotumomtrek is 48,5 cm, dit is simmetries en hang baie mooi.

HART 17-0110 kan in beide speenkalf en os produksie stelsels baie suksesvol gebruik word. Hy is ‘n goeie “ALL ROUNDER & MULTI-PURPOSE” bul om op die plaas te hê. Enige boer wat aanpasbaarheid, raamtipe, lae insetkoste, vleiseienskappe en vrugbaarheid in sy kudde wil verbeter, moet hom oorweeg.

He is a medium-frame, calving-ease bull bred from FCT 11-285 and HART 12-0409. She performed well in our herd with a AFC of 25 months, ICP 376 days/5 calves and average wean index of 101/5 calves.

HART 17-0103 is a early mature, “easy fleshing” bull that can be used on cows and heifers. His adaptability is faultless and his outstanding thick and glossy coat is striking. Have a good look at the long and free-hanging dewlap with the thick folds. The characteristics that positively influence performance on the veld is notably present: Veld Feed Conversion (104), Conditioning Score (101), Early Fat Deposition (106), Maintenance Index (96) and Veld Bull Index (107). It is easy to identify these visual qualities in this bull.

His secondary masculinity traits are well developed – his strong head is notable, with well developed eyebrow ridges, good width between the eyes, beautiful deepening of colour around the neck and a scrotum that hangs symmetrical, is well-formed and measures 37,5 cm.

HART 17-0103 displays great conformity, good width and musculature, excellent length and capacity and spring of rib as well as a depth within the forequarter. He is supple despite being well muscled and he can be used with peace of mind on heifers. Have a look at his legs – slightly of finer build but still has sufficient width over the hocks and structurally correct.

Every one is familiar with the term “Body Condition Score”. All aspects of production and reproduction withing a bulls’ life cycle is determined by his conditioning score. If a heifer or cow’s condition is not optimal then she will not fall pregnant. If an animal is earmarked for slaughtering due to less than ideal conditioning, then it does not reach a good price. You cannot expect to breed the correct genetically conditioned animals from bulls where these traits are not inherently bred into the family lineage.

Have a good look at HART 17-0103 if you want to establish ideal genetically conditioned traits within you herd.

Hy is ‘n vroeg ryp “easy fleshing” bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Sy aanpasbaarheid is regtig goed en sy baie goeie los, dik en blink vel met kort haarkleed is opvallend. Kyk gerus ook na die lang en loshangende nekvel met die breë velvoue. Die eienskappe wat prestasie in die veld positief beinvloed, is sterk aanwesig by hom – Weidingomsetverhouding (104), Kondisietelling indeks (101), vroeg vetneerlegging (106), Onderhoud Waarde (96) en VeldBulindeks (107). Dit is maklik om hierdie eienskappe visueel in die bul te herken.

Sy sekondêre manlikheidseienskappe is goed ontwikkel – sy sterk kop is opvallend, met goed ontwikkelde oogbanke, goeie breedte tussen die oë, mooi verdonkering in die nek en ‘n skrotum wat 37,5 cm meet, goed gevorm is en mooi hang.

HART 17-0103 vertoon goeie bouvorm, met genoeg breedte, bespiering, lengte asook goeie kapasiteit, sprong van rib en ‘n diep voorlyf. Alhoewel hy goed bespierd is, vertoon hy soepel en is sy beenstruktuur nie grof nie – hy kan met gerustheid op verse gebruik word. Kyk gerus na sy bene – effens fyner maar nog steeds genoeg breedte oor die hakke en struktureel korrek.

Almal is bekend met die terme “Body Condition Score” of kondisietelling – alle fasette van produksie en reproduksie in ‘n bees se lewenssiklus word bepaal deur kondisietelling. As ‘n vers of koei se kondisie nie reg is nie, vat sy eenvoudig nie bul nie. As ‘n slagbees (os/ou koei/uitskot) se kondisie nie reg is nie, behaal dit eenvoudig nie ‘n goeie prys nie. Jy kan nie verwag om die “regte genetiese kondisie beeste” te teel uit bulle waar diè eienskappe nie geneties in die familie vasgeteel is nie. Jy sal dus nie sulke diere uit laat ryp, groot raam oorwegend Taurus diere teel nie.

Kyk baie mooi na HART 17-0103 indien jy “regte genetiese kondisie beeste” eienskappe in jou kudde wil vermeerder en vas teel.

He is bred from HART 13-0050 and HART 11-0353. His mother is a highly fertile cow with AFC 26 months, ICP 362 days/6 calves and she weans at 45,5% of her body weight.

HART 17-0031 is a medium-frame bull that can be used on mature heifers and cows. During performance testing he excels within his group with ADG index of (121) and Kleiber Index of (115). The following breeding scores indicate that he can be used with great success on cows: Birth Weight (110), Milk Index (95); pre-wean (101) and post-wean (108) growth ability and ADG (106).

He displays quite a lot of Bos Indicus traits that are crucial for successful farming under extensive and difficult veld farming conditions. His coat is glossy, smooth, short and gleaming. His rump development, long tail, strong legs and claws are all exemplary. HART 17-0031 consistently delivers good breeding values. His temperament, monthly condition score, weight gain on the veld, ease of movement, overall balance and performance in the group were all outstanding. His most important traits – Veld Bull Index (107), Maintenance Index (106) and Early Fat Deposition (110) – confirmed that he will produce animals requiring low input costs on the veld. In short, if he produces animals that perform like he does, then you will reap the benefits in your herd.

HART 17-0031 displays good conformity, enough muscling, great overall width and capacity, a strong topline and nice depth throughout the forequarter. His skeletal build is slightly refined that will contribute to calving ease.

He is a beautiful masculine bull, with an alert head-held-high attitude and a good scrotum measuring 46,5 cm.

HART 17-0031 is the ideal bull for your herd if you want to add adaptability and better performance on the veld . It has been proven time and again that cattle with more Bos Taurus characteristics, perform poorly under Namibian veld conditions. Crossbreeding in Namibia can however be quite successful when the Bos Indicus influence is two-thirds or more in the cross-bred offspring. Except for all the desirable Bos Indicus traits that HART 17-0031 brings to the auction, he also brings along all the great characteristics inherent of the Bonsmara breed.

There is structurally good width, nicely filled outer and inner thighs, sufficient body capacity and a deep forequarter. HART 17-0144 is a long bull with a strong topline, good slope of rump and beautiful tail attachment. His strong legs and good width over the hocks complements his faultless build. His meat traits are outstanding, and he is packed with meat. He should preferralble only be used on cows.

Secondary sex traits traits are well-developed with a strong and masculine head, beautifully defined eyebrow ridges, good width between the eyes and a good bull neck with deepening of colour. His underline is clean with a satisfactory navel/sheath combination. The scrotum measures 39,5 cm and hangs perfectly.

His adaptability traits speak for themselves and is a perfect example of a hardy Bonsmara bull that will perform during difficult times.

Yet again we are dealing with a bull that combines excellent growth with good feed conversion - and grass efficiency – values. I want to again emphasise the importance of early fat deposition together with good muscling for cattle on the veld. Farmers are already familiar with the importance of a bull’s condition throughout the production chain. This includes heifers that reach top condition quickly, cows that are in top condition at time of calving and remain in condition till she mates again; right through to bull calves being marketed as oxen directly from the veld. HART 17-0144 combines the 2 most important economical traits seamlessly.

Dit wat ons sien word weerspieël in sy prestasiedata-Oogspieroppervlakte (111), Uitslagpersentasie (109), Vleisopbrengs (119), Kalf Groei Waarde (111), Groei Waarde (125) en Produksie Waarde (112). Speenkalf en os produsente ken ‘n bees maar, dit is goed om hulle visuele opinie te rugsteun met die nuutste genomiese data oor hoe die bul se nageslag behoort te presteer. Boere moet gebruik maak van alle moontlike hulpmiddels om die regte bul vir sy behoeftes te koop.

Hy is ongelooflik goed aangepas vir veldtoestande – van sy breë bek, dik oogbanke, goeie skof, uitstekende dik en los keelvel, goeie kwaliteit vel en haar, lang stert tot by sy sterk bene en goeie kloue. Hy is een van die top presteerders tydens die VeldBultoets met indeks van (114), weidingomsetverhouding (110), kondisietelling (110), Onderhoud Waarde (100) en Volwasse Gewig (98).

Groeivermoë op die veld en die vermoë om gras in vleis/gewig om te sit – Voorspeense (111) en naspeense groeivermoë (119), Gemiddelde Daaglikse Gewigstoename (114) en voeromsetverhouding (105) – is van sy beste eienskappe.

HART 17-0145 sal sekerlik een van die gunsteling bulle op die veiling wees! Ons almal, is eintlik maar heeltyd op soek na die eienskappe waarin hy sterk is. Hy is een van die Hartebeestloop-span se keuses vir die veiling!

LOT 27: JMP 13-0069 (POENA / POLLED)

VIDEO  /  SIRE

He is a tried-and-tested heterozygotic polled bull that we used in our own herd. He is faultless and shows none of the problems that polled animals often struggle with. We have registered more than 50 of his calves and there are still a lot of calves on the way! He was also used extensively in our polled breeding project where we used a combination of Simmentaler, Braunvieh, Tuli and Senepol genetics.

He is a well muscled, medium-frame sized bull that should be used solely on cows. The average birth weight of his calves are 36 kg. His structural width and muscling means that he is not suited for breeding with heifers. His calves are all well-muscled and has good conformity. His calves will be on display during the auction to demonstrate his breeding abilities.

He adapted very well to the harsh climate of the Kalahari. In our opinion JMP 13-0069 is currently the best polled animal available. He has all the traits that polled animals need – great adaptability and masculinity, great conformity and muscling and genetically clean when it comes to the double muscling gene. His underline is clean and the navel/sheath combination is very satisfactory – there are no signs of prolapse. His scrotum circumference measure 41,5 cm and is perfectly formed and hangs symmetrically.

His breeding index values are consistently good and remains stable. Good pre-wean (101) and post-wean (101) growth ability, good ADG of (107), feed conversion ratio (100), grass efficiency rate (105) and good milk index (108).

JMP 13-0069’s coat is slightly yellower in colour. There is however ample scientific data that confirms that the more yellow and light red shades reflect infra-red rays of the sun much more efficiently and contributes to better heat tolerance. I recommend that he goes to a stud herd – he is polled animal without the polled problems.

Hy is ‘n beproefde heterosigotiese poena bul wat ons self gebruik het. Hy het werlik geen van die tekortkominge waarmee die poena beeste sukkel nie. Ons het al meer as 50 van sy kalwers aangemeld en daar is nog ‘n groot klomp op pad. Hy is ook baie sterk gebruik in die poena opteelprojek waar ‘n kombinasie van Simmentaler, Braunvieh, Tuli en Senepol is.

Hy is ‘n goed bespierde, mediumraam bul wat net op koeie gebruik moet word. Die gemiddelde geboortegewig van sy kalwers is 36kg. Sy breedte en bespiering is egter van so ‘n aard dat hy nie op verse gebruik kan word nie. Sy kalwers is ook goed bespierd met baie mooi bouvorm. Daar sal van sy kalwers op die veiling vertoon word om te wys hoe die bul teel.

Hy het uitstekend aangepas in die Kalahari. Volgens ons is JMP 13-0069 van die beter poena bulle tans in die bedryf. Hy het alle eienskappe wat die poena en horing beeste benodig – baie goeie aanpasbaarheid en manlikheid, baie goeie bouvorm en bespiering en hy is skoon getoets genomies vir dubbelbespierde gene. Sy Onderlyn is skoon en die naelvel/skede kombinasie is baie goed. Daar is geen teken of voorkoms van prolaps nie. Sy skrotumomtrek is 41,5 cm, dit is perfek gevorm en hang baie mooi.

Sy teelwaarde indekse is reg deur baie goed en dit bly redelik stabiel. Goeie voorspeense (101) en naspeense (101) groeivermoë, goeie GDT van (107), voeromsetverhouding ((100), weidingomsetvermoë (105) en goeie melkwaarde (108).

JMP 13-0069 se gelerige kleur mag dalk stoettelers pla. Daar is egter soveel wetenskaplike data beskikbaar om te bewys dat die geel en ligter rooi skakerings die intensiteit van die son en infrarooi strale soveel beter hanteer/weerkaats as donkerrooi en donker beeste. Ek sal hom aanbeveel na ‘n stoetkudde – hy is ‘n poena sonder “poena probleme”. Kommersiële boere wat graag poena gene in die kudde wil vestig, kan maar sterk staan op hom.

LOT 28: HOT 11-0168 (POENA / POLLED)

VIDEO  /  SIRE

It is tradition at Hartebeestloop to offer at least one tried-and-tested sire on auction, and it is our pleasure to offer polled HOT 11-0168 (PcH) this year. He has been DNA verified as a heterozygous polled animal. He constantly delivers polled heifers – both in our polled Bonsmara herd and polled-breeding project where other breeds are involved. HOT 11-0168 is a registered AI-bull and was jointly purchased by Sernick – and Hartebeestloop – Bonsmaras. Badeveen Bonsmaras bred this bull and we have used in in all 3 herds. At Hartebeestloop the average birth weight if his calves were 36 kg. Our recommendation is to solely use him on cows.

He offers great conformity with strong overall muscling and lots of structural width. He successfully addresses several familiar problems among the polled animals. I will list a couple of the more important traits:

  1. No prolapse is present
  2. Functionally correct navel/sheath combination
  3. Great masculinity
  4. Strong and broad bull neck
  5. Great overall muscling
  6. Above average milk index

There will be calves of HOT 16-0168 available at the auction as well. Come and have a look at his calves and form your own opinion about the quality of his offspring.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a tested polled animal. Despite that fact that he is already 9 years old, he still looks very good. He has an alert demeanour with high libido. He delivered more calves than we anticipated. We some extra attention and care on the veld, he should still deliver calves for 2-3 years. If you are ready farming with polled animals – or planning to introduce polled genetics in your herd – then you should consider HOT 11-0168.

In lyn met die tradisie om jaarliks ‘n beproefde stoetvaar aan te bied, is dit ‘n voorreg om die poena HOT 11-0168 (PcH) op die veiling te sit. Hy is DNA bevestig en is heterosigoties poena. Sy kalwers is konstant poena by ons – beide in die Bonsmara poena kudde en die opteel poenaprojek waar verskeie ander rasse betrokke is. HOT 11-0168 is ‘n geregistreerde KI-bul en is gesamentlik deur Sernick en Hartebeestloop Bonsmaras aangekoop. Badeveen Bonsmaras het hom geteel. Hy is ook in al 3 kuddes gebruik. Op Hartebeestloop is die gemiddelde geboortewigte van sy kalwers 36 kg. Die aanbeveling is om hom net op koeie te gebruik.

Hy vertoon baie goeie bouvorm met sterk bespiering en baie breedte. Hy spreek ‘n klomp van die eienskappe aan wat in die poenas ‘n probleem is. Ek lys ‘n paar van diè meer belangrike eienskappe:

  1. Geen prolapse
  2. Funksionele naelvel/skede kombinasie
  3. Goeie manlikheid
  4. Sterk en dik bulnek
  5. Goeie bespiering
  6. Bogemiddelde melkwaarde

Daar sal ook kalwers van hom op die veilingsdag beskikbaar wees om na te kyk en jou eie opinie te vorm oor die kwaliteit wat hy teel.

Hierdie is ‘n goeie kans om ‘n beproefde poena bul te bekom. Hy is 9-jaar oud en lyk nog steeds baie goed. Hy is ‘n wakker bul met hoë libido – ons het meer kalwers van hom gekry as waarvoor beplan is. Met ekstra versorging op die veld, behoort jy nog 2-3 jaar se kalwers uit hom te kry. As jy alreeds in die poena teling is, of beplan om poenas in jou kudde te vestig, is hy ‘n baie goeie begin. Kommersiële boere wat hulle koei-kalf boerdery bietjie wil vergemaklik, moet ook mooi na hom kyk!

LOT 29: HART 17-0060

VIDEO  /  SIRE

He is bred from LAR 07-0234 and HART 14-0206. His mother comes from a highly fertile mother line that goes all the way back to Vaalbos Bonsmaras (VBB 07-0147 with AFC 25 months, ICP 397 days/9 calves and wean index of 103/9 calves). HART 14-0206 has a AFC of 30 months, ICP 376 days/3 calves and she weans at 49,3% of her body weight. There is thus exceptional and fertile mother’s in HART 17-0060’s history. LAR 07-0234’s milk value is high and has remained high throughout the years of performance testing. For us it is important to maintain the trait of sufficient milk within the herd.

HART 17-0060 is a medium-frame, calving ease bull that can be used on heifers as well as on cows. He has great overall conformity, muscling, width and a beautiful mid-piece. The topline is well defined, while the slope of rump and tail attachment is good. The legs are strong and broad across the hocks. He is filled with meat across the loins and slope of rump and there is nice depth throughout the forequarter. Every farmer understands the worth of a deep and heavy forequarter on the bull’s weight and how it translates into profit.

His adaptability is highly satisfactory with a Veld Bull Index of (100) – spot on for the breed average. He does display slightly more Taurus characteristics, but his coat is glossy and smooth and together with a long tail and strong legs he performs well on the veld. His secondary masculinity traits are well developed. Masculine head, nice width between the eyes complemented by beautiful deepening of colour in the neck region as well as a large, symmetrical scrotum measuring 40 cm. HART 17-0060’s breeding values are balanced against birth weight / calving ease and in line with the breeding average (100). Pre-wean growth (94) is slightly lower but he shows above average post-wean growth (105). ADG (112), Feed Conversion (106) and scrotum breeding index of (119) are all outstanding. The 3 selection breeding indices namely Cow Value (105), Growth Value (110) and Production Value (107) are above breed average.

HART 17-0060 is relatively unrelated to the current Namibia Bonsmara genetics on his father’s side. He can be used in any production system with great success. His strong points are: high milk value, great conformity and strong legs. If you want to improve on any of these characteristics within your herd, pay close attention to this bull.

Hy is geteel uit LAR 07-0234 en HART 14-0206. Sy kom uit ‘n baie vrugbare moederlyn wat al die pad teruggaan na Vaalbos Bonsmaras naamlik VBB 07-0147 met OEK 25 mnde, TKP 397 dae/9 kalwers en speenindeks van 103/9 kalwers. HART 14-0206 se OEK is 30 mnde, TKP 376 dae/3 kalwers en sy speen teen 49,3% van haar liggaamsmassa. Daar is uitsondelike goeie en vrugbare moederlyne in die teling van HART 17-0060. Ons verstaan die konsepte van tè veel of tè min melk vir vleisbeeste. LAR 07-0234 se melkwaarde is hoog en dit het deur baie jare van nageslag prestasietoetsing, nog steeds goed gebly. Dit is belangrik vir ons om “genoeg” melk in die kudde te behou sonder om na enige kant oor te hel.

HART 17-0060 is ‘n mediumraam, kalfgemak bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Hy het goeie bouvorm, bespiering, breedte en ‘n mooi middelstuk. Die toplyn is sterk, kruishelling en stertaanhegting is goed en die bene is goed breed oor die hakke en sterk. Hy is goed gevul met vleis – lende en kruishelling is vol vleis en daar is goeie diepte deur die voorlyf. Ons almal besef die waarde van ‘n diep en swaar voorlyf op die bees se gewig en betaalstaat!

Sy aanpasbaarheid is goed en sy VeldBulindeks is (100) – presies op die gemiddeld van die groep bulle. Hy het bietjie meer Taurus eienskappe as wat normaalweg geteel word op Hartebeestloop maar, sy gladde vel en blink haarkleed tesame met lang stert en sterk bene maak dat hy goed presteer het op die veld. Sy sekondêre manlikheidseienskappe is goed ontwikkel – kop is manlik, mooi breedte tussen die oë met goeie verdonkering in die nek en ‘n groot skrotum wat 40 cm meet en mooi simmetries hang.

Sy teelwaarde indekse is baie goed in balans met geboortegewig/kalfgemak op rasgemiddeld (100), bietjie laer voorspeense groei (94), bogemiddelde naspeense groei (105), goeie GDT (112) en voeromsetverhouding (106) en ‘n skrotum teelwaarde indeks van (119). Die 3 seleksie teelwaarde indekse naamlik Koei Waarde (105), Groei Waarde (110) en Produksie Waarde (107) is ook bo die rasgemiddeld.

HART 17-0060 is aan vaderskant redelik onverwant aan die huidige Namibiese Bonsmara genetika en dit is altyd ‘n plus punt. Hy kan in enige produksiestelsel met goeie sukses gebruik word. Sy sterk eienskappe is hoë melk waarde, goeie bouvorm en sterk bene. Indien jy enige van die eienskappe in jou kudde wil verbeter, kyk gerus na hom!

He is bred from HART 13-0379 and HART 09-0137. She is a highly efficient cow and weans her 7 calves at 49,2% of her body mass. Her AFC is 23 months, ICP is 417 days/7 calves with an average wean index of 101/7 calves. Cow efficiency cannot be compared between different herds, but it still remains a good indicator of a cow’s ability to raise a calve efficiently.

HART 17-0131 is a medium-frame, “easy fleshing” and calving ease bull that can be used on heifers and cows. His conformity, musculing, overall width, capacity and length are all good. He is ultimately packed with meat over the loins, slope of rump and thighs. Have a look at his performance data: Eye muscle surface are (121), Dress-mass percentage (112), Carcass Yield (118), Calve Growth Index (113), Growth Index (129) and Production Index (104). HART 17-0131’s strong points are his ability to grow on the veld and to convert grass into meat/weight: pre-wean (113) and post-wean (122) growth index, Average Daily Weight Gain (113) and Feed Conversion Ratio (109).

The aforementioned achievements run parallel to outstanding adaptability. Pay attention to his gleaming and smooth coat, loose hanging dewlap and thick skin folds in the neck area. He also has a long tail with a beautiful tail switch, good hump development and black pigmentation of the muzzle.

HART 17-0131 visually scored high and his excellent performance supports his outstanding appearance. He is structurally correct with good conformity, shows above average growth ability and comes from a highly efficient mother line. Furthermore, he is very well adapted with strong masculinity traits and a large scrotum measuring 42 cm. He can be used on cows and heifers and this is as close you can get to “ALL- in- ONE” packet.

Haar OEK is 23 mnde, TKP is 417 dae/7 kalwers met ‘n gemiddelde speenindeks van 101/7 kalwers. Koeidoeltreffendheid kan nie oor kuddes of verskillende troppe vergelyk word nie maar, dit bly ‘n uitstekende indikasie van die koei se vermoë om doeltreffend ‘n goeie kalf groot te maak.

HART 17-0131 is ‘n mediumraam, “easy fleshing”, kalfgemak bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Sy bouvorm, bespiering, breedte, kapasiteit en lengte is baie goed. Hy dra baie vleis - sy lende, kruishelling en dye is goed vol vleis. Kyk gerus na sy prestasietoets data wat met vleisopbrengs te doen het -. algemene bespiering soos bepaal deur Oogspieroppervlakte (121), Uitslagpersentasie (112), Vleisopbrengs (118), Kalf Groei Waarde (113), Groei Waarde (129) en Produksie Waarde (104). Bogenoemde data kan saamgevat word om aan die speenkalf en os produsente ‘n redelike akkurate aanduiding te gee wat om te verwag van die nageslag van die bul. HART 17-0131 se sterkpunt is sy groeivermoë op die veld en sy vermoë om die gras in vleis/gewig om te sit – Voorspeense (113) en naspeense groeivermoë (122), Gemiddelde Daaglikse Gewigstoename (113) en Weidingvoeromset verhouding (109).

Bogenoemde prestasies op die veld gaan hand-aan-hand met uitstekende aanpasbaarheid. Let op die glansende, seepgladde vel en kort, blink-in-die-son haarkleed, die mooi los keelvel, die dik velvoue in die nek, die lang stert met welige kwas, die goeie skof en die swart pigment op die neusspieël.

HART 17-0131 is visueel hoog gepunt en sy uitstekende prestasies onderskryf sy voorkoms. Hy is struktureel korrek met goeie bouvorm en dra baie vleis, vertoon bogemiddelde goeie groeivermoë en weidingomset, kom uit ‘n baie doeltreffende moederlyn, wys uitstekende aanpasbaarheid met baie manlikheid en groot skrotum wat 42 cm meet en kan op verse en koeie gebruik word.

He is loaded with meat and I invite you to look at his breeding values: eye muscle surface index (113), dress-mass percentage (112), carcass yield (120), Calve Growth Index (118) and Production Index (118).

The next set of breeding values supports the fact that he is an outstanding grower: Pre-wean index (118) and Post-wean index (120), ADG (121), feed conversion ratio (109) and grass efficiency conversion ratio of (114).

The 3 selection breeding index values are as follows: Cow Index (113), Growth Index (128) and Production Index (118).

His adaptability traits are excellent – smooth and glossy coat and hair. He has a nice, loose dewlap with lots of broad folds that is an indication of thick skin. The black pigmentation around the eyes and muzzle is quite noticeable and desirable. Hump is well developed, and he has a nice long tail, strong legs and claws and the underline is beautifully clean. His adaptability is faultless and his Veld Bull Index of (104) supports his excellent performance on the veld.

His mother lineage offers many outstanding qualities to select from for the breeding of replacement heifers. For this reason I highly recommend using him for weaner and ox production systems. For farmers that need better growth, efficient conversion of feed/grass into weight and meat as well as higher carcass yields and dress-mass percentage, HART 17-0068 is the right bull for you.

Sy aanpasbaarheideienskappe is baie goed – sy vel is glad en sy haarkleed is kort en dit blink. Daar is ‘n goeie los keelvel vol breë velvoue wat ‘n aanduiding is van ‘n dik vel. Die swart pigment om die oë en op die neusspieël is baie opvallend en gewens. Die skofontwikkeling is goed, die stert is lang, bene en kloue is sterk en die onderlyn is mooi skoon. Jy kan nie fout vind by sy aanpasbaarheid nie en sy VeldBulindeks van (104) bevestig sy goeie prestasies op die veld.

Nieteenstaande al hierdie waardes is hy nie ‘n terminale bul nie. Daar is soveel goeie eienskappe in die bul dat daar geselekteer kan word vir vervangingsverse uit sy vroulike nageslag. Ek sal hom sterk aanbeveel vir speenkalf en os produksiestelsels. Daar waar jy goeie groei, effektiewe omset van voer/weiding in vleis en gewig, swaar karkasgewigte en goeie uitslagpersentasies benodig, is hy definitief die bul wat jy moet oorweeg.

He is a medium-frame, calving ease and easy-fleshing son of AG 03-0359 (click on the sire link above) and HART 14-0429.

I often refer to bulls that can be considered for the breeding of replacement heifers. Annually there is a huge demand for good commercial heifers and the market cannot deliver enough. This includes all breeds. I list a couple of important characteristics that cow herds require to produce and reproduce profitably on the veld. It includes visual as well as scientific (performance testing data) traits. Remember that 100 represents breed average and higher values are preferred. Always try to maintain a balance between the traits.

  1. Good overall capacity and spring of rib – exactly the type of qualities this bull presents.
  2. Sufficient structural width and wide pelvis – he is broad throughout. Have a look at the width between the eyes which correlates with his structural width throughout. His pelvis index is 117.
  3. Good fleshing / meatiness and no excessive muscling – adequate and supple muscling that translates into enough meat on this bull.
  4. Structural form should be correct with weight towards the back – he shows exactly the opposite with a lot of depth through the forequarter.
  5. Even distribution of fat and the ability to deposit adipose tissue quickly – his early fat deposition as determined by ultrasonic scanning is 147.
  6. Low input costs on the veld – Maintenance Index is 115
  7. Adequate ability to convert grass into condition and weight – Grass Efficiency Conversion index of 109.
  8. Sufficient muscling to maintain conformity – general muscling with ultrasconic scanning is 107. Visually muscling appears satisfactory and supple.
  9. Sufficient pre-wean growth ability to genetically transfer to calve – pre-wean growth index of 97.
  10. Sufficient milk to raise a healthy calve – milk index is 115.
  11. Outstanding adaptability – all the way from the thick, loose skin folds, smooth and coat, terrific dewlap, long tail, clean underline, strong legs and claws, right up to the broad jaw he demonstrated everything needed for adaptability.

I have not nearly mentioned and discussed everything in detail. Come and have a look at this outstanding bull for yourself. HART 17-0185 will perform well in any production system.

Ek verwys gereeld na bulle wat oorweeg kan word om vervangingsverse te teel. Daar is jaarliks ‘n baie groot aanvraag na goeie kommersiële verse en die mark kan nie naastenby genoeg lewer nie. Dit sluit alle rasse in. Ek lys ‘n paar noodsaaklike eienskappe wat koeikuddes nodig het om winsgewind te produseer en reproduseer onder veldtoestande. Dit is beide visuele en wetenskaplike (prestasietoetsdata) eienskappe en onthou – 100 is die rasgemiddeld en ‘n hoër waarde is in die gewensde rigting. Hou egter altyd die balans en werk op matig meer.

  1. Goeie kapasiteit met goeie sprong van rib – presies die eienskappe wat die bul vertoon.
  2. Genoegsame breedte met wye heupe – hy is regdeur breed, kyk ook die breedte tussen die oë wat goed korreleer met breedte reg deur. Sy pelvisindeks is 117.
  3. Goeie bevlesing en nie oormatige bespiering nie – goed bespierd maar daar is geen harde definisie van spier nie. Wel oorgenoeg vleis op die bul.
  4. Bouvorm moet reg wees met gewig na agter – hy wys presies die teenoorgestelde bouvorm met baie diepte deur die voorlyf.
  5. Egalige vetverspreiding en die vermoë om vet gou neer te slaan - sy vroeë vetneerlegging soos bepaal deur ultrasonies skandering is 147.
  6. Lae onderhoudkoste op veld – Onderhoud Waarde is 115
  7. Goeie vermoë om veldweiding om te sit in kondisie en gewig – veldweidingomsetvermoë is 109.
  8. Genoegame bespiering om konstitusie te behou – algemene bespiering met ultrasoniese skandering is 107. Visueel ook goeie en soepel bespiering.
  9. Genoeg genetiese voorspeense groeivermoë om na kalf oor te dra -voorspeense groeivermoë is 97.
  10. Genoegsame melk om goeie kalf groot te maak – melkwaarde is 115.
  11. Uitstekende aanpasbaarheid – van sy los, dik, gladde vel, uitsonderlike keelvel, blink haarkleed, lang stert, skoon onderlyn en sterk bene en kloue tot sy breë bek, wys hy alles wat nodig is vir aanpasbaarheid.

Ek het nie alles in detail genoem en bespreek nie. HART 17-0185 sal goed doen in enige produksiestelsel. Ek het hom slegs getoets aan ‘n moontlike bul om vervangingsverse te teel aangesien dit ‘n begrip is wat sommige boere nie mooi verstaan nie. Hy is ‘n baie goeie bul wat geen kudde of enige produksiestelsel in die steek sal laat nie.

A typical Hartebeestloop medium-frame and easy-fleshing bull that can be used on heifers and cows. He is bred from AG 03-0359 (click on the sire link above) that has consistently bred good conformity, ample milk, beautiful colour and early mature offspring. HART 17-0175 comes from well-adapted drought hardy cows. His grandmother on mother’s side HART 12-0004 has an AFC of 25 months, ICP of 362 days/6 calves and average wean index of 107/6 calves. She is a SA Stud Book 4-Star Cow and still doing duty within the herd. His mother is HART 14-0366 with AFC of 30 months, ICP of 384 days/3 calves and she weans at 52,7% of her weight. She is also a SA Stud Book 4-Star Cow.
What does all this mean? We see the economical impact of:
(i) repetition of fertility and high reproductivity over generations;
(ii) the impact of sufficient milk and pre-wean growth ability on increased production and;
(iii) the important contribution of cow effectivity towards increased efficiency and profit;
(iv) the importance of cow lines when deciding on bull purchasing.

HART 17-0175 shows great overall conformity, great length with a strong topline, adequate muscling and capacity as well as nice depth throughout the forquarter. He has good structural width and the inner and outer thighs are filled with meat – his condition is always great on the veld. His Maintenance Index is (129) that confirms that he is low input cost animal. He is structurally correct, has good balance and moves easily across the Kalahari.

HART 17-0175’s adaptability is top class. Smooth and glossy coat, great hump development together with a long tail and strong legs. He shows good masculinity with a strong head, strong eyebrow ridges, beautiful deepening of colour and a large scrotum that hangs perfectly and measures 42 cm.

All of HART 17-0175’s breeding values are in balance with each other. Breed average for birth weight/calving ease (99), pre-wean (97) and post-wean (105) growth ability, ADG (105), ample milk (104) and high reproductivity with scrotum circumference (111). His breeding values for the 3 most important Selection Indices for the Bonsmara breed are: Cow Index (108), Growth Index (111) and Production Index (110). These values reflect HART 17-0175’s expected performance – above average.

HART 17-0175 is the product of strict selection over many years with profitable breeding in mind – adapted, hardy, low input cost, easy-fleshing, maintains top condition and conformity, masculine, fertile, phenotypically efficient and structurally faultless.

‘n Tipiese Hartebeestloop mediumraam en “easy fleshing” bul wat gemaklik op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Hy is geteel uit AG 03-0359 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) wat deurgaans goeie bouvorm, baie melk, mooi pigment en “vroeg ryp – easy fleshing” nageslag geteel het. HART 17-0175 kom uit goed aangepasde Kalahari droogte-taai koeie - ouma aan moederskant HART 12-0004 met OEK 25mnde, TKP van 362 dae/6 kalwers en gemiddelde speenindeks van 107/6 kalwers. Sy is ‘n SA Stamboek 4-Ster Koei en nog steeds in die kudde. Die moeder is HART 14-0366 met OEK 30 mnde, TKP 384 dae/3 kalwers en sy speen teen 52,7% van haar eie gewig. Sy is ook ‘n SA Stamboek 4-Ster Koei.
Wat beteken die syfers? Ons sien die ekonomiese invloed van:
(i) herhaling van vrugbaarheid en hoë reproduksie oor generasies heen;
(ii) die invloed van genoegsame melk en voorspeense groeivermoë tot verhoogde produksie en;
(iii) die waarde van koeidoeltreffendheid tot verhoogde effektiwiteit en wins;
(iv) die waarde van koeilyne wanneer jy bulaankope besluite moet neem.

HART 17-0175 vertoon goeie bouvorm, goeie lengte, sterk toplyn, genoeg bespiering, baie goeie kapasiteit en mooi diepte. Hy het goeie breedte en binne en buite dye is goed gevul – en sy kondisie is altyd goed op die veld. Sy Onderhoud Waarde is (129) wat dui op goeie lae insetkoste bees. Dit is die voordeel van jare-lange seleksie vir diere wat onder veldtoestande presteer. Hy is struktureel baie korrek, het goeie balans en beweeg baie gemaklik in die Kalahari sand.

Sy aanpasbaarheid is uit die boeke – gladde, blink en dik vel met kort, glansende haar, goeie skofontwikkeling, lang stert met goeie bene. Hy is baie manlik met ‘n sterk kop, goeie oogbanke, goeie verdonkering en groot skrotum wat mooi hang en 42 cm omtrek meet.

HART 17-0175 se teelwaardes is mooi in balans en regdeur goed. Rasgemiddeld op Geboortegewig/kalfgemak (99), voorspeense (97) en naspeense (105) groeivermoë, GDT (105), oorgenoeg melk (104) en hoë reproduksie met skrotumomtrek (111). Sy teelwaarde indekse vir die 3 belangrike Seleksie Indekse in die Bonsmara is – Koei Waarde (108), Groei Waarde (111) en Produksie Waarde (110). Dit wys presies hoe HART 17-0175 behoort te presteer – bogemiddeld goed.

HART 17-0175 is die gevolg van jare-lange seleksie vir veilige en winsgewinde teling – aangepas, gehard, lae onderhoudskoste, “easy-fleshing”, behou kondisie en konstitusie, manlik, vrugbaar, fenotipies doeltreffend en struktureel korrek. In boeretaal – dit is die tipe bulle wat jy moet gebruik.

HART 17-0187 is an “easy fleshing”, medium-frame and calving-ease bull that can be used on cows and heifers.

His veld adaptability is excellent. He quickly reaches top condition (easily gains meat and fat), maintains his condition (has the necessary fat reserves) and has a low Maintenance Cost Index of (117). His Veld Bull Index is (101). The aforementioned selection criteria should be applicable to all our animals but we place more emphasis on it for our female animals. The female animals become pregnant when they are in top condition and that is where the money lies. The visual characteristics of good adaptability is noticeable within this bull but don’t neglect to look at his smooth, supple and thick coat. Bonsmara cattle should have loose and free hanging dewlaps to better tolerate the sub-tropical warm climate of Namibia.

He is bred from AG 03-0359 (click on the sire link above) and HART 15-0089. She is a 8-score cow with a AFC of 29 months, ICP of 372 days over 3 calves and she weans at 52.2% of her body mass. Her lineage goes all the way back to Germar Bonsmaras that was purchased during the SA National Bonsmara Auction many years ago.

HART 17-0187 performs well within his group during performance testing with an ADG index of (108) and Veld Conversion Ratio of (109). His breeding indices are mostly between 90 and 100.

HART 17-0187 is structurally correct, has a strong topline, good muscling and overall width as well as good depth in the forequarter. He has strong legs, nice claws and good balance.

Definitely consider him if you are looking for a calving-ease and safe bull without any unwanted traits. He will perform well in any crossbreeding system where you want to improve on calving-ease, more milk, frame-type and adaptablility.

HART 17-0187 is ‘n “easy fleshing”, mediumraam, kalfgemak bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word.

Sy veldaanpasbaarheid is uitstekend. Hy kom gou in kondisie (pak maklik vet en vleis aan), behou sy kondisie goed (het mos die vetreserwes om te gebruik) en het ‘n lae Onderhoudskoste teelwaarde indeks van (117) en Veldbulindeks van (101). Eintlik behoort bogenoemde seleksie kriteria mos vir al ons diere te geld – maar ons gee meer waarde daaraan by die vroulike diere. Want hulle vat bul op kondisie en dit is waar die geld is! Die visuele eienskappe van goeie aanpasbaarheid is baie duidelik op die bul te sien maar, kyk gerus na die gladde, los en dik vel en blink haarkleed. Bonsmara beeste moet goeie keelvelle hê om die warm, subtropiese klimaat beter te kan hanteer.

Hy is geteel uit AG 03-0359 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) en HART 15-0089. Sy is ‘n 8-punt koei met OEK 29 mnde, TKP 372 dae oor 3 kalwers en sy speen teen 52.2% van haar liggaamsmassa. Sy gaan al die pad terug na Germar Bonsmara bloedlyne wat aangekoop is op die SA Nasionale Bonsmara veiling baie jare gelede.

HART 17-0187 doen goed in sy groep tydens prestasietoetsing met GDT indeks van (108) en Veldweidingomset van (109). Sy teelwaarde indekse is meestal tussen 90 en 100 met ‘n paar uitsonderings na beide kante van die reeks.

HART 17-0187 is struktureel korrek met sterk toplyn, genoeg bespiering en breedte vir ‘n kalfgemak bul, goeie kapasiteit en ook goeie diepte deur die voorlyf. Sy bene is sterk, kloue is goed en hy het goeie balans.

Kyk gerus na hom as jy ‘n veilige en kalfgemak bul benodig wat geen “unwanted” eienskappe na jou kudde sal bring nie. Hy sal goed doen in enige kruisteelstelsel waar jy kalfgemak, meer melk, raamtipe wil regstel en aanpasbaarheid wil verbeter.

He is bred from HDT 13-0007 (PP) that comes from the Boshoff-family that owns Boshoff-Bonsmaras. His mother HT 14-0176 is a A-generation cow with excellent reproduction ability and fertility – her AFC is 32 months, ICP is 392 days/3 calves and she weans at 54,5% of her body weight. Her last ICP was 330 days. HT 17-0031 is a B-generation bull and heterozygotic polled animal (PH).

He is a well-muscled, medium-frame bull that should be used on cows. His structural width and muscle definition is not suited for heifers. He has good conformity, strong topline with a beautiful slope of rump, tail attachment and sufficient overall capacity. His secondary sexual traits are evident – strong, masculine head with defined eyebrow ridges and good width between the yes. I would have preferred a slightly broader neck, but the underline is clean and the navel/sheath combination satisfactory. The scrotum hangs perfectly and measures 39,5 cm.

His adaptability is faultless, and he offers a beautiful, smooth and glossy coat. The dewlap is nice and loose. Hump development and the long tail are pleasing. He excelled during the Veld Bull Test with an index of (116).

His breeding index values are consistently acceptable – slightly heavier on birth weight (96), pre-wean (97) and post-wean (98) growth ability and ADG of (94).

HT 17-0031 will do well in a weaner and ox production system. He is suited for any production system where growth and performance on the veld are elemental. The polled genes are a bonus and he should perform just as well as any other Bonsmara bull.

Die moer HT 14-0176 is ‘n A-generasie koei met baie goeie reproduksievermoë en vrugbaarheid – haar OEK is 32 mnde, TKP is 392 dae/3 kalwers en sy speen hulle teen 54,5% van haar liggaamsmassa. Haar laaste TKP is 330 dae – droogte of te nie, sy vat kalf jaarliks. HT 17-0031 is ‘n B-generasie bul en heterosigoties poena (PH).

Hy is ‘n goed bespierde, mediumraam bul wat net op koeie gebruik moet word. Sy breedte en spierdefinisie sal nie werk met verse nie. Daar is goeie bouvorm, sterk toplyn met goeie kruishelling en stertaanhegting en genoegsame kapasiteit. Die sekondêre manlikheideienskappe is baie goed ontwikkel – sterk en manlike kop met goed ontwikkelde oogbanke en goeie breedte tussen die oë. Ek sou graag ‘n sterker bulnek wou sien. Die onderlyn is skoon met goeie naelvel en skede kombinasie en die skrotum hang perfek, is goed gevorm en meet 39,5 cm.

Die aanpasbaarheid is opvallend – baie mooi en glansende vel, kort hare wat mooi blink en goeie los keelvel. Die skofontwikkeling is goed, stert is lank en hy presteer baie goed tydens die VeldBultoets met (116) indeks.

Sy teelwaarde indekse is ook deurgaans aanvaarbaar – effens swaarder op geboortegewig (96), voorspeense (97) en naspeense (98) groeivermoë en GDT (94).

HT 17-0031 sal goed doen in speenkalf en os produksiestelsels. Vir enige produksiestelsel waar diere op die veld moet groei en presteer, kan boere goed na hom kyk. Die poena gene is net ‘n bonus, hy moet nog steeds net so goed soos enige horing Bonsmara bul presteer.

Every year we try to offer one of the tried-and-tested older bulls on auction. These bulls come with impressive breeding records and have several weaned calves. We can thus give a good report about the offspring.

This bull was bought from Paul Mare of Limerick Bonsmaras and is genetically unrelated to the animals in Namibia. LMR 13-0028 is a well-muscled bull that should only be used on cows. He is structurally correct, adapted very well to the challenging Namibian conditions and is a hard worker.

His calves perform outstanding. They show good conformity and muscling with smooth coat and hair without any structural or functional problems. The calves have light birth weights (35 kg) and grow well. The calves weaned at an average weight of 202 kg which is above average for weaners considering the drought.

I highly recommend him for weaner calve production.

He will be 7 years old when going on auction and prospective buyers should be able to still get 3 years of good breeding from him.
This bull offers an opportunity for weaner producers to acquire a very good bull at a reasonable price.

Hy is aangekoop by Paul Mare van Limerick Bonsmaras – redelik onverwante genetika in Namibië. LMR 13-0028 is ‘n baie goed bespierde bul wat net op koeie gebruik moet word. Hy is struktureel korrek en teel ook so. Hy het uitstekend aangepas in Namibië en hard gewerk.

Sy kalwers lyk en presteer baie goed. Hulle bouvorm is goed – mooi bespiering met gladde vel en haar en sonder enige strukturele en funksionele probleme. Hulle is lig op geboorte (35kg) en groei goed. Dit is so dat sy kalwers net in die droogtejare aangekom het maar, nog steeds speen hulle (vers en bulkalwers) gemiddeld 202 kg. Dit is bogemiddeld ten opsigte van speenkalwers vir die afgelope paar droë jare.

Ek beveel hom sterk aan vir speenkalf produksie.

Hy is 7 jaar oud op die veiling en die voornemende koper behoort nog ten minste 3 jaar van goeie teling uit die bul te kry. Hierdie is ‘n goeie geleentheid vir speenkalf produsente om ‘n baie goeie bul in die hande te kry teen ‘n redelike prys.

He is a darker in colour, medium-frame, easy-fleshing bull that offers calving ease and can be used on heifers and cows. He has good conformity, sufficient muscling, capacity and depth throughout the forequarter. He shows good overall width from his back and running right up to the hump. Topline, slope of rump and tail attachment are all good. Have a good look at how meaty this bull is. He is filled with meat from the hindquarter, thighs, loins, slope of rump right up to the shoulders. He demonstrates great balance and moves easily.

HART 17-0147’s veld adaptability is excellent! He quickly reaches top condition (accumulates meat and fat) and maintains his condition well (has enough fat stores to use). I would like to highlight some of his traits that we use at Hartebeestloop as selection criteria for low input cost animals. The group/breed average is 100 and scores above 100 is preferred. Breeding index is indicated in brackets.

  1. Maintenance Index (127)
  2. Grass Feed Conversion to meat/weight (116)
  3. Weight gain on the veld (111)
  4. Calving ease in the veld without supervision (120)
  5. Conditioning score throughout the year within its group (100)
  6. Adequate muscling to maintain conformity (106)
  7. Challening Veld Bull Test at Hartebeestloop (101)

He radiates masculinity with a strong head, very well developed eyebrow ridges and good width between the eyes. The jaw is broad, nice deepening of colour in the neck area and good navel/sheath combination along the underline. The scrotum measures 40 cm and hangs perfectly.

His adaptability is top class – look closely at the thick and broad skin folds at the neck and the mobile dewlap.

HART 17-0147 is a calving ease bull and includes all the traits that the Bonsmara breed is renowned for. He is a safe bull to use within your herd especially if you want to reduce frame size or add more width in the Sanga-type crossbreds.

HART 17-0147 se veldaanpasbaarheid is uitstekend. Hy kom gou in kondisie (pak maklik vleis en vet aan), behou sy kondisie goed (het genoeg vetreserwes om te gebruik). Ek lig paar van die eienskappe uit wat op Hartebeestloop gebruik word om lae insetkoste beeste te selekteer. Die rasgemiddeld/groepgemiddeld is 100 en waardes bo 100 is in die gewensde rigting.

There is a lot of history in the bloodlines that this bull is bred from. AG 03-0359 (click on the sire link above) was used extensively and for specific reasons within the Hartebeestloop herd. His trademark traits are: strong head, good milk, beautiful conformity and easy-fleshing. The “359” sons on auction all derive from artificial insemination. Experts are often against bringing back old genetics and rightfully so but if you’ve seen how the offspring of this bull excels then you cannot do otherwise but to use him again.

The mother’s side of HART 17-0168 goes all the way back to HART 09-0326, HART 09-0002, HJS 03-0016 and the NGO – Woestyn Bonsmara bloodlines. His mother HART 15-0060 has an AFC of 29 months, ICP of 387 days/3 calves and wean index 105/2 calves. She weans the calves at 57.1% of her own weight.

HART 17-0168 is a medium-frame, calving ease and easy-fleshing bull that can be used on heifers and cows. He offers great conformity, is structurally broad with well-filled thighs, good muscling and capacity as well as great depth throughout the forequarter.

He is a masculine bull in all regards with excellent secondary sex traits – strong head and eyebrow ridges, thick and broad bull neck with beautiful deepening of colour and a scrotum circumference of 37,5 cm. He boasts a proud and macho attitude.

His adaptability is impressive – super smooth, glossy hair and coat, thick skin folds in the neck and a loose, mobile dewlap. His hump development is great, his tail switch almost touches the ground and he has strong legs and claws with good width between the hocks. The black pigmentation around the eyes and muscle draws your eye to these areas. His early fat deposition (147), low Maintenance requirements (122) together with great muscling (102) ensures that he reaches top condition quickly and can maintain this condition on the veld.

HART 17-0168 breeding values are as follows: low on birth weight (109), sufficient pre-wean (94) and post-wean (100) growth ability, together with ample milk (108) and good ADG (111); Feed Conversion Ratio (114), Grass Efficiency Ratio (116) and Scrotum Index (100). These results confirm that he is a suitable bull to use in any production system.

My personal preference would be to use him to breed replacement heifers. There is adequate growth, ample supply of milk, great conversion of feed and grass, low maintenance costs, sufficient muscling and excellent adaptability. These are all traits that farmers would like to establish within their herds.

Daar is baie goeie diepte in die lyne waaruit hy geteel is. AG 03-0359 (kliek op die stoetvaar skakel hierbo) is sterk en vir spesifieke doeleindes in die Hartebeestloop kudde gebruik. Sy “trademark” eienskappe is sterk koppe, goeie melk, mooi bouvorm en “easy fleshing”. Die “359” seuns op die veiling is almal deur KI in die lewe gebring. Wetenskaplikes is baie keer gekant (en met reg ook) teen ou genetika wat teruggebring word. As jy egter van plaas tot plaas ry en sien hoe die nageslag van ‘n spesifieke bul presteer, kan jy nie anders as om hom weer te gebruik nie.

Aan moederskant gaan HART 17-0168 al die pad terug na HART 09-0326, HART 09-0002, HJS 03-0016 en die NGO - Woestyn Bonsmara lyne. Sy moer, HART 15-0060 se OEK is 29 mnde, TKP 387 dae/3 kalwers en speenindeks 105/2 kalwers, Sy speen die kalwers teen 57.1% van haar eie massa.

HART 17-0168 is ‘n mediumraam, kalfgemak, “easy fleshing” bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word. Hy vertoon goeie bouvorm, is breed met mooi dye, genoeg bespiering, genoeg kapasiteit en goeie diepte deur die voorlyf.

Hy is ‘n baie manlike bul met uitstekende sekondêre geslagseienskappe – sterk kop en oogbanke, dik en breë bulnek met baie mooi verdonkering en ‘n skrotumomtrek van 37,5 cm. Die bul se hele houding is manlik en trots!

Opvallend is sy uitstaande aanpasbaarheid – seepgladde, glansende vel met kort en blink haarkleed, dik velvoue in die nek en ‘n los keelvel. Die keelvel sny bietjie in die nekgedeelte. Sy skofontwikkeling is goed, sy welige stertkwas raak amper die grond, sy bene is sterk met goeie breedte oor die hakke en goeie kloue. Die swart pigment om sy oë en op die neusspieël trek aandag. Sy vroeë vetneerlegging (147), lae Onderhoud Waarde (122) tesame met goeie bespiering (102) maak dat hy maklik in kondisie kom en ook sy konstitusie op die veld sal handhaaf.

HART 17-0168 se teelwaarde indekse is as volg: Laag op geboortegewig (109), genoegsame voorspeense (94) en naspeense (100) groeivermoë, tesame met baie melk (108) en baie goeie GDT (111) en voeromsetverhouding (114), weidingomset verhouding (116) en skrotum (100). Dit maak hom ‘n geskikte bul om in enige stelsel te gebruik.

My persoonlike voorkeur sou wees om hom te gebruik om vervangingsverse te teel. Daar is genoegsame groei, baie melk, goeie omset van weiding en voer, lae onderhoudskoste, genoegsame bespiering en uitstekende aanpasbaarheid. Dit is almal eienskappe wat boere graag in hulle koeikuddes wil vestig.

HART 17-0186 is a strong, medium-frame bull that can be used on heifers and cows.

He is bred from outstanding mother lines. The mother lines go all the way back to Arcadia Bonsmaras and Fortress Bonsmaras and both the bloodlines performed wll in our herd. Have a look at his grandmother on mother’s side HART 12-0041 data: AFC of 24 months, ICP 363 days/6 calves. His mother HART 15-0009 has an AFC of 30 months, ICP of 377 days/3 calves. Continuous fertility and good reproduction ability throughout generations. Both of these cows are still active in our herd which in itself says a lot.

HART 17-0186 is a bull with outstanding balance and conformity. He offers good structural width, beautiful length and capacity and good depth in the forequarter. Structurally he is faultless with a strong topline, good slope of rump and nice tail attachment. He makes a good first impression!

HART 17-0186 combines good muscling (eye muscle surface area of 109) with early fat deposition (148) and these are the animals that excel on the veld even when conditions are unfavourable. He has good pre-wean and post-wean growth indices of (108) and (113) respectively. Above average ADG (110) and Feed Conversion Ratio (110), excellent Grass Efficiency Rate (111) and ample milk (114). All the breeding values are nicely in equilibrium. His Shoulder Height Index (95) and Mature Weight Index (87) are spot on for his form and build.

His masculinity is beautiful – strong head and eyebrow ridges, good width between the eye with a thick neck. The scrotum is well-formed and hangs perfect while measuring 40 cm.

You cannot ask for better adaptability. Outstanding coat and hair, long tail, good hump development, clean underline and strong legs. These traits explain his great performance during the Veld Bull Test and his index of (101) and Maintenance Value Index of 115.

HART 17-0186 has impressed me. He will not be three years old when he goes on auction and he will surely continue to improve on his new owner’s farm. I am often surprised when I visit farms and see how these young bulls excel at the new farms.

‘n Sterk mediumraam bul wat op verse en koeie gebruik kan word.

Hy is geteel uit baie goeie moederlyne in ons kudde. Die koeilyne gaan terug na Arcadia Bonsmaras en Fortress Bonsmaras – beide lyne wat goed presteer het in ons kudde. Kyk gerus na die ouma aan moederskant HART 12-0041 (OEK 24 mnde, TKP 363 dae/6 kalwers en moeder HART 15-0009 (OEK 30 mnde, TKP 377 dae/3 kalwers. Herhaalde goeie vrugbaarheid en hoë reproduksievermoë deur geslagte heen! Beide die 2 koeie is nog aktief in die kudde. Dit opsigself sê al baie – dit is nou ons 8ste jaar van ondergemiddelde reënval en daar is geweldig gesny aan die koeikudde.

HART 17-0186 is ‘n bul met goeie bouvorm en uitstekende balans. Daar is goeie breedte, mooi lengte, genoeg kapasiteit en ‘n diep voorlyf. Hy is struktureel korrek met sterk toplyn, goeie kruishelling en stertaanhegting. Hy maak ‘n baie goeie eerste indruk met sy bouvorm en baie goeie balans.

HART 17-0186 kombineer goeie bespiering (oogspieroppervlakte van 109) met goeie en vroeë vetneerlegging (148) – dit is die diere wat presteer op die veld, selfs wanneer toestande ongunstig raak. Hy het goeie voorspeense en naspeense groeivermoë (108) en (113) onderskeidelik, bogemiddelde GDT (110) en voeromsetverhouding (110), uitstekende weidingomsetvermoë (111) en oor genoeg melk (114) – maar alles in balans! Met al hierdie goeie teelwaarde indekse, is sy Skouerhoogte (95) en Volwasse Gewig (87) egter presies waar dit moet wees. Hy is glad nie ‘n groot raam of later ryp tipe bees nie.

Sy manlikheid is baie goed – sterk kop, mooi oogbanke, breed tussen die oë met dik en donker nek en skrotum wat mooi hang en 40 cm in omtrek meet.

Jy kan nie beter aanpasbaarheid kry nie. Van die uitstekende vel en haar, lang stert, goeie skof, skoon onderlyn en sterk bene – en dit is hoekom hy so goed doen op die veld met ‘n Veldbul Indeks van (101) en ‘n Onderhoud Waarde Teelwaarde Indeks van 115.

Ek is beindruk met HART 17-0186. Hy sal nog nie 3 jaar oud wees op die veiling nie en sal nog baie verbeter by sy nuwe eienaar. Ek is baie keer geweldig verbaas as ek plaasbesoeke doen en sien hoe die jong bulle by hulle nuwe tuistes net beter en sterker geword het.
