During my search for exceptional genetics in Sables, I had the opportunity to discover not only people with integrity and knowledge but also to explore our beautiful country, South Africa. 

One of these remarkable persons was Tina de Jager from Valley Ventures. Tina imported her Matetsi bloodline Sables from Zimbabwe in 1990. By taking personal care of her animals she empowered me with her knowledge and passion for these animals. 

This bloodline of Tina’s Sables is known for top genetics and it was a well-researched decision to purchase our first 13 heifers from her in 2010.

In 2011 we invested in Wikus, a Zambian bull from Kwanare and in 2012 we acquired Mufasa, who comes from the renowned Nike/ Monster bloodline of Thaba Tholo Game Breeders.

We further expanded our herd in 2012 to include another ten heifers from Tina as well as other exceptional animals from different breeders. We also bought animals from Hannes Maree whose herd had genetics from the well-known Tsunami bull of Piet du Toit, one of the most sought after West Zambian breeding bulls .  

In addition to our already top genetic herd, we bought  the Matetsi bull, Fanjan, from Barry Badenhorst of Knapdaar Boerdery, who measured 46” in 2013 and is now already 50.25”.  This Matetsi Sable bull promises exceptional breeding results with offsprings from Tina’s herd . These cows, most of them  measuring more than  30”, are regarded by experts as of the best Matetsi herds in the country.
