The Hartebeestloop team would like to say one BIG THANK YOU to all the role players involved in making the Agra/Hartebeestloop BOSKOS BOEREDAG & Hartebeestloop Auction 2019, such a success!

Without the “together” it would not have been possible!!

The Agra team did ONE FANTASTIC JOB – how you guys get to make it look so effortless goes beyond us… Agra’s last “body count” on the Farmers’ Day was over 600… Congratulations in pulling this together.

Thanks to all the traders (Wow! it is becoming almost a mini-show THANKS TO YOU!), speakers (who gave their time and knowledge for free to the farmers during this terrible drought – again a big thank you!!) and farmers coming from near and far to support this great event. We for sure hope you all enjoyed it as much as us!!

A big and sincere thanks to everybody who also attended the auction, with a REAL BIG THANKS to ALL the buyers!

Dawie Moller from KOMAWEER Bonsmaras bought our prized Poena bull – THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT Dawie!

EMOK Bonsmaras bought our signature LOT 4 bull (HART 16-0248) - thank you so much!

We hope these bulls will give you much happiness over many years!

The biggest thank you goes to our Maker for all the many blessings. Yes, for sure “TOGETHER WE CAN DO GREAT THINGS” and these 2 days can speak of this.

Hope to see you all again next year! God bless.

Hartebeestloop se “DROOGTE-TAAI” Teelfilosofie
Date:
April 2019



Ons besef lankal dat daar nie net diere geteel moet word wat in bogemiddelde seisoene uitstekend presteer nie.

Daar is oor die afgelope paar jare baie min bogemiddelde seisoene gewees – die norm is gemiddeld na ondergemiddeld. Dit is die huidige “normale” omgewing waarin die diere moet oorleef en presteer.

Geen dier kan op niks oorleef en presteer nie. Ek verwys na weidingtoestande waar daar genoeg ruvoer is, met min of geen groen veld en waar slegs noodsaaklike lekaanvulling gedoen word. Oor baie jare is daardie eienskappe wat nodig is om in die “swaarder” jare ook te oorleef en nog steeds binne die omgewingsbeperkinge optimaal te presteer, in die Hartebeestloop diere vasgeteel.

Ek word gereeld gevra oor die enorme kostes wat aangegaan is om alle Hartebeestloop diere genomies te laat ontleed. Die regverdiging van genomiese ontledings is eenvoudig – jy kan vroeër in die dier se lewe en met ‘n baie groter akkuraatheid bepaal, of dit wel die “droogte-taai” eienskappe het. En ook met ‘n groter akkuraatheid bepaal hoe suksesvol die eienskappe na die nageslag oorgedra gaan word.

Onthou – die boer verdien inkomstes uit die bul se nageslag. Enige meting, tegniek, tegnologie of wetenskap wat help om bogenoemde “droogte-taai” eienskappe beter te identifiseer of met groter akkuraatheid te bepaal, regverdig die kostes en moeite! In die Namibiese ekstensiewe boerderytoestande (met inaggenome die effek van aardverwarming) kan daar nie meer anders geboer word nie.

Die 2019 Veilingsbulle is uitgekies met groot klem op die volgende eienskappe:

  • Kalfgemak
  • Aanpasbaarheid & Gehardheid (droogte taai eienskappe)
  • Lae Onderhoudskoste (droogte taai eienskap)
  • Genoegsame groei
  • Hoog vrugbare bloedlyne

Ons nooi jou hartlik uit na die veiling op Vrydag 17 Mei om 11h00!
