Johan Dannhauser and his family of Goedgedacht farm near Parys in the Free State run a 4 000-commercial cow herd, a Simmentaler and Africa Drought master stud consisting of 200 animals, and a feedlot finishing 2 500 calves for slaughter in two cycles per year. The Dannhausers have farmed the 10 000ha farm since 1882. Between 1950 and 2005, the family focused on grain, but in 2005 they began converting their lands to pasture for cattle.
