DECEMBER 2020

We dip all the cattle weekly using a Coopers product Decatix which also has a biting fly adjuvant in. Samples are taken biannually to test efficacy of strength. We round up the cattle, count them and then dip. We weigh monthly & tag register all animal to monitor progress.

OCTOBER 2020

Everything continues to go very well at the Norton Ranch, with a lot of overall progress and development. It has been a very interesting period with a large number of calves dropping every day!

All the same sized calves are from our artificial insemination syncronisation program. The genetic progress using proven stud sires with EBV's ( expected breeding values). The other calves are all from stud bulls chosen on EBV's.

This makes selection criteria of future breeding stock that much easier as all the calves are from the same contemporary group. Cows showing lots of capacity produce milk & be able to re conceive in the coming bulling season.

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.
