Sale Report 2015

The sale was well attended by both local farmers and stud breeders from as far afield as Limpopo and Natal. 108 Buyers were registered and over 300 people were in attendance. A big thank you to all who attended the sale for putting their trust in Hobson and Co and Frontier Bonsmaras. 62 Bulls sold at an average of R 39160, this meant that the Frontier Breeders maintained their 100% selling record over 10 sales/years.  I think members Justin Stirk, Craig Handley, Brett Knott,  JJ Park and Daryl Fetting deserve much praise for the impressive string of bulls they offered. A special mention must be made of JJ Park, who on his last sale before he moves to Australia sold 2 bulls for over R100000. The top priced bull was sold for R120000 by Mr JJ Park to Mr Tinus Maritz of Vaalwater in Limpopo. One of the highlights of the day was the sale of a bull that was donated by the Frontier Bonsmara Breeders to the Sunshine Coast Hospice. The bull was sold to Mr Craig Lake of Nanaga for R34000. Another special moment was an award presented to Mr Peter Knott by the Bonsmara Breed Society, acknowledging his 40 years of work in producing the highest quality Bonsmara Bulls. The female sale was outstanding considering the current production stock market, with all 157 commercial females sold at an average of R8500. Prices were as follows:
