Tiptree Tuli Stud
was established in 2011. We acquired female progeny from
some of the top studs in the country – Namely: Great Karoo;
Burowill; Nonnie; Avondale; Eira and Bloemvlei. Our stud
sires were purchased from Great Karoo and Alpha Omega.
At the dispersal
sale of Great Karoo Tulis, we made an effort to purchase
females out of the most fertile cows’ families, as we
believe this is the cornerstone of any livestock enterprise.
We have been using AI a month before breeding season starts
and so far this has been a success, as well as enabling us
to create a larger gene pool within our herd.
Our herd is run on virulent heartwater, redwater and gall
sickness veld. Our grazing consists of semi-sweet to sour
veld in winter with a protein lick. In summer the herd
grazes on dry land pasture, namely Smuts and Blue Buffalo
grass, with a phosphate lick.
Our goal is to
enhance profitability and genetic progress in order for us
to supply breeding material of a high quality to stud and
