The herd was one of the first herds of cattle to be tagged and be placed onto the ID tags & GMPBasic system:

Nguni cattle for Auction


The animals arrived on Mr. Asmal's farm in late 2006. Most of the heifers and especially the cows were in poor body condition. 2006 had been a very dry year with many animals across the country being in poor body condition due to a general lack of feed.

All animals were immediately treated for internal and external parasites.

A whole spectrum of bacterial & viral disease conditions were prophylactically vaccinated for.

Despite these early efforts, some cows were already too emaciated and subsequently died. These losses were however restricted and through a process of feed support and sound animal health care the herd's condition improved dramatically.

During the next 18 months the following treatments were applied by Mr Asmal and these actions assisted him to improve the status of the herd within a short period

1. Pour - on remedy to control ticks
2. Vaccinations - Supavax   ( Anthrax, Botulism, Clostridium )
                        Multiclos   ( 8 types of Clostridium diseases )
                        Bovilis Qarat ( BVD, IBR, PI3, BRSV )
                        Lumpy skin disease
                        Bovitect P ( Pasteurella )

3. Deworming remedy - Fluxacur, Ivotan L.A.
