Unicom Agricultural Secondary School near Tweespruit has been home to the Veeplaas Unicom Braunvieh stud since 2017. This project, which forms part of the Veeplaas Schools’ Herd Project, kicked off in 2017 at the Bloem Show in Bloemfontein, when animals were symbolically handed over to the school. Seven donated heifers and four female animals bought by school were offloaded at their premises in July 2017. The Braunvieh breeders who donated animals were Gawie Naudé, Fanie Els, Leon Strauss, Kobus Bezuidenhout, Hans Bester, Christopher Havenga and Sampie Rossouw. The school held a farmers’ day in conjunction with Braunvieh SA on 20 August 2017. The sponsors were AFGRI Animal Feeds, Zoetis, Standard Bank and OVK. One of the breeders, Kobus Bezuidenhout, assisted the pupils in getting the animals show-ready.
