Thank you for visiting the Boran Cattle Breeders Society of South Africa’s website.

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).

Origin of the breed
Boran cattle were domesticated in
3 parts of the world ...

History in South Africa
The early 1960's saw the first attempt
to bring Boran to South Africa ...
