Puberty is a function of breed, age, and weight. To reach puberty by 12 to 14 months of age, heifers must be fed properly to gain sufficient weight. Rate of gain can vary during segments of the development period, as long as heifers reach the desired weight before breeding time.

Acquired as a long weaner heifer, this cow stands here with its third calf. It’s average intercalving period (ICP) is 363 days.


The are many, many farm fencing options to consider. How do you know what option to choose? First you need to consider what your fencing needs are. Do you need to keep animals in? Do you want to keep animals out? Is it important for the fence to be aesthetically pleasing? We recently fenced our newly acquired 200Ha farm and thanks to the fence is strong and to for providing the labour.


Boran cattle have diversity of adaptation (morphological, physiological, biochemical, metabolic, cellular and molecular) responses to the effects of climate change induced challenges - notably high temperature and solar radiation, rangeland degradation, seasonal feed and water shortages and high incidences of tropical diseases. Meta-analysis using a random-effects model showed estimates of heritability and genetic correlations for reproduction and production traits (Merga Bayssa et al, 2020, Production, Reproduction and Adaptation characteristics of Boran cattle breed under changing climate: A systematic review and meta-analysis)

Mazhanje/ mahobohobo or wild loquat fruit contain a long list of beneficial nutrients:
-vitamin A
and many other nutrients. The muzhanje trees are among many indigenous fruit bearing trees found in our farm


Mazhanje echirungu (Madokomera/ mazamera), unlike most of the native mazhanje growing in our country, this is a unique foreign variety also known as "white man's mazhanje," or "white sapote”. The fruit, whose taste has been likened to a creamy custard with hints of banana, vanilla, pineapple, and caramel, is what we had tonight as dessert. They can be cooked into delicious syrupy sauce, which can be used on meat and pancakes. If ever you get a chance, try this amazingly strange but delectable fruit.


Correctly choosing a time of the year to calve is a major decision in cattle farming. We receive our calves from mid October to mid January. Green season-born calves are typically heavier when weaned in winter.


Slowly getting there. The 15 August crop



Future breeders


The is upon us as we look forward to receive more calves


Thank you our 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉


If u allow them to graze at night, in the day when it’s hot they will be under the shade


Waiting for the rain


This 10 year old gave birth to it’s 7th calf yesterday. Despite the dry low quality forage and being kraaled at night against stock thieves (so could not graze for full 24 hours), the cow delivered a top quality progeny. I am impressed by this cow. It is the oldest cow on the farm.


Sweet potatoes are dicotyledonous plants. The truth is they're not potatoes. They are naturally sweet roots in the morning glory family. Although Native Americans were growing sweet potatoes when Columbus went to America in 1492, these veggies grew in Peru as early as 750 B.C. Just one sweet potato gives you 400% of the vitamin A you need each day. This helps keep your eyes healthy as well as your immune system. It's also good for your reproductive system and organs like your heart and kidneys -


The bird plum, commonly referred to as nyii in Shona or umnyi in isiNdebele, is laden with vitamin C and is edible fresh, sun dried or boiled with sorghum. The fruit is also used to make beer or a very palatable porridge. The tree is botanically known as berchemia discolor (of the Rhamnaceae family). The fruit is usually our snack here at the farm.

The Mashona breed is well adapted to the local semi-arid and sub-tropical environment. They are efficient feed converters and have good mothering ability, survivability, easy calving and fertility. With no supplements, this heifer is in good condition this winter. Ready for the upcoming bulling season
