Wagyu Congress

Covid rules will be very strictly enforced, but we hope to have at least 100 people at the Congress. The congress will be presented both in-person and virtually. No lectures will be presented this year. However, we will rather focus on our fantastic product and have fun together. The theme is “Let’s celebrate Wagyu meat”. […]

CWB Audits & Morgan beef

After nearly six months of negotiation, we have finalised our agreement with CPG, SAMIC and the Department of Agriculture regarding the CWB audits. The intention is and has always been to provide our CWB members with a Registered Quality Indication Mark (claim and protocol) that is credible yet cost effective.

Die protokol wat op die plaas moet gebeur voordat diere na ‘n voerkraal gestuur word: Bulle moet verkieslik voor ‘n ouderdom van 3 maande gekastreer wees en beslis voor 5 maande.

DNA SNP profiles

We have had a good response from members taking up our offer of subsided SNP tests for Purebred and fullblood cattle. Ideally we should be SNP’ing the F1 progeny for their carcass data but realize that this might be prohibitively expensive. The offer to members to move to SNP’s for the purebreds and fullbloods, where […]
