Abstract

Pieter van Deventer farms Beefmaster stud cattle part-time on the farm Klipfontein near Coligny. In 1993, he bought his first Beefmaster bull, which he mated with several commercial cows, thus initiating the VAN-DEV Beefmaster herd. Pieter was impressed by the improved quality of the Beefmaster bull's progeny and by their excellent weaning weights. Furthermore, the bull's strong genetic prepotency ensured that his first-born calves strongly resembled Beefmasters.
