Welcome to Boran Cattle Breeders' Society of South Africa

The South African Boran was founded out of a need by commercial farmers that were tired of over managed and over fed animals and started searching for the ultimate grass fed animal. It had to survive in our country’s diverse climate and handle periodic droughts without human intervention and good management. We had two extremes, on the one hand the perfect carcass animal (high maintenance & expense), and on the other hand we had indigenous breeds (lower income from abattoir penalties) that was just not meeting our market standards. But there was nothing in between and so the Boran came to fill the gap with an acceptable carcass for our market with low to no input cost (optimum income).
