DUBANE RANCH

August 2020

Exciting progress continues to be made on Dubane Ranch, the team on the ground are working tirelessly to accomplish our vision of being the leading cattle breeders in Zimbabwe while contributing to the growth and re-establishment of the national herd. Dubane is the largest ranch we currently occupy, unfortunately the ranch has been derelict and under utilised for more than two decades, as a result we have embarked on a massive, very modern approach to the reestablishment of the ranch.

Roads have now been reconstructed along with drainage in all the correct places, this has been essential to allow feasible access to these properties and bring in cattle, feed trucks and requirements such as fencing, water reticulation, building materials, etc. We recently documented some of the progress on the ranch, specifically:

1 - Water development
2 - Pregnancy Diagnosis ( 88% )
Water Development

Water Development - When we first occupied Dubane ranch very few water points were operational, a lot of work has gone into locating pipelines and water extraction from any available sources. We are currently in the process of reinstalling all the original pipelines ( +/- 80km ) and additional water sources to plumb to the new network. There are also various sand extraction points that have been very successful in pumping water for the cattle to drink.

Pregnancy Diagnosis - This year we achieved a PD of 88%The PD are attributed to paying constant attention to the breeding herds, this includes:1- Bull soundness2- Cows having enough pastures to ovulate3- Free from both internal and external parasites4- Vaccine Schedule up to date5- Summer mineral licks' much detail has to be looked at to get the results we got this year of 88%.

Why would I invest in cattle?

It is argued that fiat currency based investments create illusions of wealth, whereas commodity based investments provide clarity as the results are tangible and reflect actual asset value. Historically, in Africa, people have always measured and kept wealth in cattle. An investment, which locks value in internationally recognized commodities, which are easily redeemable, resonates well with the economic psyche of the continent. The intrinsic value of beef in Africa is unquestionable, thus an investment denominated in kilograms of live beef is undoubtedly sound and stable.
