Abstract

Disease resistance and ease of calving were my main reasons, says Stephen Johnson, when asked why he introduced Boran genetics to his beef enterprise about a decade ago. Today, the 2 600ha Edendale farm near Fort Beaufort and an adjacent 1 500ha rented land, both consisting of sweet but virulent heart water veld, are home to a stud of 51 Boran cows producing sought-after genetics, as well as 250 commercial F1and F2 Boran cows that achieved a 100% calving rate in 2015.
