FRITS First Bonsmara Bul 15 MAY 1957
Prof. JC Bonsma
Detailed records of the performance of the bulls and that of their proginy were kept, and the resulted herds and their records will now be studied in detail by Professor Bonsma (after whom the Bonsmara was named) and other officials of the department who have been associated with the development of the breed. Dr. DM Joubert "a co-worker" who has just completed a short history of the breed, told Farmer's Weekly that the future of the first modern South African breed of cattle was now in the balance and that the results achieved with the Bonsmara Bulls loaned to the farmers would largely determine whether it merited acknowledgement or not. In the event it did just that and numerically the Bonsmara today is the largest beef cattle breed in South Africa, and it is also unique in that it is only beef breed developed with the exclusive aid of performance tested records.
