Home of Gorba Bonsmaras

Gorba Bonsmaras is a Bonsmara Cattle Breeder located in Potchefstroom, South Africa. We were founded in 2000 and have grown much since then, including starting a lucerne pellet factory. We are run by Johan de Jager who has over 25 years experience in the industry of livestock and Agriculture.

The Bonsmara cattle breed was scientifically bred by Prof. Jan Bonsma for it’s fertility, adaptibility and high quality beef during World War II, when there was a need for a beef cattle that could adapt to the climate while producing beef economically. Also Bonsmara is more than just breeding, it’s a system that will help you manage various aspects of your  cattle operation. Because of the system you get used to routine and the periodic weighing of your cattle. All data are used to some extend and the result is better evaluation of all animals with the outcome that you have better information at your disposal when selecting Bulls, replacement heifers and cull cows. This all leeds to a more productive and efficient herd that will certainly place you in and more possitive economic position. Cattle farming and breeding is a long term commitment and unfortunately not a easy money making scheme. Patience and persistance are the key factors to success.
