Following a lifetime love of farming it is
only recently that we have been able to
realise our dream to devote ourselves to our
farm in the Byrne Valley, KwaZulu Natal.
We have moved now from Byrne Valley due to
the land claims on the farm and have now
resettled in Mpumalanga in the town of
Choosing to farm Borans was the easiest
choice we have had to make, with their many
wonderful attributes, too many to mention,
but to state just a few:
Their very strong hybrid vigour which is
attributed to the fact that the Boran is
a completely pure breed having had no
crossbreeding for at least 1300 years.
This makes it ideal for cross breeding
with any other breed in commercial use
Their high resistance to tick and other
diseases due to their motile skin which
has short hair covering and a waxy
secretion. These are all good deterents
against the many harmful insects present
in their pastures.
The fact that the female Borans reach
puberty at a very young age, calf with
ease and have strong mothering instincts
and a good milk supply to feed their
The fact that they remain fertile for
years after many other breeding cows
have long since been eliminated from the
The overall longevitity of the breed.
Their wonderful herding ability,
relatively docile nature and subsequent
ease of handling.
These are just a few of the Borans wonderful
But it is what the Boran can offer to all
the other breeds that is so important. Their
extreme hybrid status ensures that the
benefits of crossbreeding can been seen
immediately. It is not only the above
mentioned points that can be bred into other
breeds, but the fact that the the meat
quality of the Boran has been proven to be
excellent. They produce good quality beef on
grass and water, when taken into
consideration the production cost of beef
drops when you farm with Borans.
There is a good 15 % average increase in
weaning weight when you use a Boran bull on
your typical meduim frame farm cow which
also converts to more money in your pocket.
