MISSIE


Hier by LE ROC BRANGUS loop al ons koeie op natuurlike gras weiding reg deur die jaar.

 

Die koei moet 'n veldaangepaste medium raam koei wees wat elke jaar kalf.
Die bul moet 'n vrugbare veldaangepaste medium raam bul wees wat gemaklik kan beweeg om sy koeie te kan dek.

 

 

 

GESKIEDENIS

 

Ons boer reeds die afgelope 25 jaar in die Tweespruit-distrik.  Hier waar die Oos-Vrystaat begin, het ons 'n gemengde grasveld en ons kommersiële kudde het een doel gehad en dit was om goeie speenkalwers te teel.  In die proses het ons bulle van verskillende rasse gebruik met gemengde welslae.

 

In 1998 het ons ons eerste Brangus Bul, RO95488, op die Hertzogville veiling gekoop - hierdie bul se kalwers was duidelik in 'n ander klas!

In 2001 het ons 25 van ons Brangus koeie geselekteer, hulle laat keur en met die bul RO 95488 gedek. Dit was die oorsprong van LE ROC BRANGUS.

 

 

 

 

Met die aanbreek van die dekseisoen vir hierdie verskalwers is ons weer Hertzogville veiling toe - daar het ons MV01589 gekoop.  Hierdie bul het baie diep spore in ons kudde getrap en daar word nou nog van sy seuns en kleinseuns in ons kudde gebruik.

In die jare wat volg het ons top genetika bulle bly gebruik en ook ons vroulike kudde vergroot.

Vandag, 15 jaar later doen ons ons seleksie uit 'n kudde van 800 Brangus koeie.  Dit is hierdie seleksiedruk wat ons by ons missie bring.

MISSION


At LE ROC BRANGUS all our cows graze on natural grass all through the year.The cow must be a veld adapted, medium frame cow which calves each year.  The bull must be a fertile, veld adapted, medium frame bull which must move with ease to mate with the cows.

 

 

 

HISTORY

 

For the last 20 years we have been farming cattle in the Tweespruit region.  Here, where the Eastern Free State starts, we have a mixed grazing and we had one goal for our commercial herd and that was to breed good weaners.  In the process we used a variety of different breed bulls with mixed results.

 

In 1998 we bought our first Brangus bull, RO95488, at the Hertzogville auction.  This bull's calves were clearly in another class!

In 2001 we selected 25 of our Brangus cows to be inspected, and we mated them with RO 95488.  That was the origin of LE ROC BRANGUS.

 

 

 

 

With the advent of the mating season for the heifers of our first breeding, we went back to the Hertzogville auction.  There we bought our second Brangus bull, MV01589.  This bull really made his mark in our herd and some of his sons and grandsons are still used in our herd.

In the years to follow, we kept on using top genetic bulls and we also enlarged our female herd.

Today, 15 years later we do our selection from a herd of 800 Brangus cows.  It is this selection criteria that brings us to our mission.
