The Nguni is a truly African breed that has proved itself over centuries. It is adapted, hardy, displays longevity and is functionally-efficient in terms of fertility, good mothering ability and cost-efficient food conversion.

It is our vision to educate the cattle fraternity regarding these traits and to introduce these cattle back into areas where other less-efficient breeds have been used. We particularly stress the value of these cattle in economic, profitable farming because of lower input costs required.

We can see a huge role of this breed in the future, where food production is of paramount importance. The Nguni will also introduce hardiness and functional efficiency to other breeds, where they may be used in a cross-breeding scenario. We have a vision of a new generation of existing and 'up and coming' farmers occupying the grasslands of South Africa with their Nguni cattle.
