Buffalo

2011

Buffalo herd at Tallyho has been sourced from around the country thus making up a very diverse set of characteristics and an excellent gene pool. Some of the bulls come from Dinaka (stud game breeders) Waterberg, Barry Streicher (ammondale, trophy breeders) Alldays area, well known Thaba Tholo and Rietvlei nature reserve. The cows and heiffers came from the following areas, Musina, Vivo, Rietvlei, Rustenburg and Bela Bela. The oldest cow would be around 7-8 years old and the oldest bull around 7 years.

Full histories (sires and dams) of all buffalo is kept on file as well as all blood tests from time of being moved to Tallyho.

 

2012/3

Some young bulls with excellent genetics have been introduced during 2012. With the new Rowland ward measurement system coming into play in 2013 we put emphasis on horn mass, bosses and width. The 2 young bulls father had 18inch bosses and 44 inch width.

All our cows are calving extremely well. Average age of our herd is app 7 years old and stand at about ±50 animals. Dominant herd bulls are now fully grown and in their prime, they look great and have excellent balance of horn width, mass, bosses and body size and presence!!!!
