is a proud member of
The Bonsmara Cattle Breeders Society of South Africa


Fairview Estates started farming with Bonsmara commercially in 2001, under the watchful eye of Charl van Rooyen, previous Breed Director of Bonsmara SA.

Charl van Rooyen selected from various Bonsmara Stud Breeders the top available cows, flushed by Dr Ronnie de la Rey from Embrio Plus, for the American Export market. After the permitted flushing was completed in 2001, we were fortunate to obtain 30 of these top animal, which formed the nucleus of the present Fairview Bonsmara herd. In 2004 Fairview Bonsmara registered with Bonsmara SA. From the start we used excellent established bloodlines from well known breeders such as Arthur de Villiers, Fourie Scheepers , Lawrence Ralfe and Frikkie Kruger.

Fairview Bonsmara’s aim is to breed well adapted and functional breeding animals, for the local market. We run our herd on mountainous sour veld and this is the reason why we have such well adapted animals.

Daar is so baie wat ek anders sou doen as ek in 2002 meer kennis gehad het van
beesboerdery en daar is so baie duur lesse wat onnodig op my pad gekom het … veral
omdat ek nie n boerdery agtergrond het nie.

Graag wil Fairview Bonsmaras kennis deel en uitruil met ander beesboere, opkomende
boere en veral mense wat beplan om met n kommersiele kudde te begin. Die treurigste raad
wat jy seker kan kry is by n braaivleisvuur, die gesels in die kooperasie se gange of die
koppie koffie na kerk en meeste opinies word seker uitgedeel met goeie bedoelings.......
