BORAN COWS
_____________________________________________________________________
 

TLM 5047: Walking here with het calf from the 2014/15 calving season from HEADBOY. She won the Landbou Weekblad/SA Studbook Platinum cow award for the Boran breed.She is now 16 years old and has reared 13 calves. She has not a tooth left in her mouth and reared a calf every 359 days on the veld summer and winter with no licks or feed.

Collett Farming cc ~Superior Genetics ~ won the award for the most productive cow for 2013. We actually obtained the first 3 places with 3rd: TLM 5038, 2nd, TLM 5045 and 1st: TLM 5047. (Left- Mario du Preez, right- Clynton Collett)

TLM 5047: TLM 00-11 X GF 39 T Most productive cow for 2013. Truly a cow that has proven herself over and over. Not just a top performer but the quality of all her calves from different bulls have been excellent. Here she is standing with an UMVUBU TLM 3-65 polled bull calf. Apart from her performance, she is an average cow, with excellent pigment.

TLM 5045 – Natural polled out of TLM 00-11 x GF 25 O. 2nd in the most productive cow of 2013. Here with a polled Umvubu calf. Her calves have all done well here by us. The bull calf on the photo was sold for R80 000 out of hand.

TLM 5038: TLM 02-1 x GF 39 T. A very tough cow regarding droughts. She will take the bull under any circumstances; she maintains herself even in very tough times without any form of supplements or lick.

         

Borans have good legs. Our Borans must have good walking ability. They have to climb mountainous areas with ease, even when they’re pregnant

CC 10-24: HVT 95-21 x TLM 4132

CFH 08-369: An “YSTER” daughter with an polled UMVUBU bull calf. The calf is currently 12 months of age and is really performing well among his contemporaries

CC 11-10: MHB 05-18 x TLM 5028. This young polled heifer was early pregnant on the photo and has calved in the meanwhile. She calved form UMVUBU. and a top cow namely TLM 5028, we trust that her future here at superior genetics is a bright one

Boran cows with good udders. CC 10-16 and CC 10-26 Showing that our Boran cows have beautiful udders to rear their calves sufficiently under almost any circumstances

         
   

A group of young heifers with their calves walking in the reeds, the only food source they will have for about 6 months of the year. This is where the Boran breed has truly proved itself, with its mothering ability. With other breeds that we farmed with we use to lose about 2-3 calves per year from cows leaving their calves in the reeds and being unable to find them again. In nearly 8yrs of farming with the Boran we have not lost one! Truly a mother breed

KB 9 B (Natural Polled): PM 14 R x GF 40 O. Here with an Umvubu heifer calf. We have sold her to Hurwitz Farming at our 2013 Production Sale
