Gelykwater Bonsmara strives to produce quality breeding animals for the market in order to sustain and improve beef production. We breed medium-framed animals that are easy fleshing. We aim at fertile females that wean a calf every year, with good mothering ability and that are adapted to cold winters and hot summers.
Gelykwater Bonsmara females are chosen for their fertility, capacity, depth and temperament. Our sires are bred in the direction of being shorter, wider and easy fleshing with good libido. Our bulls could easily service 30 -40 females in a 90 day breeding season.
We do artificial insemination and embryo flushing, which shorten the time for us to reach our goals to produce healthy, fertile, medium-framed animals well suited to the climates of South Africa.
