Imported Polled Semen
The South Devon Breeders are in the process of importing polled semen. This has been discussed for sometime between the breeders, but at the AGM held in March 2010 it was decided to import semen from polled bulls from Australia, New Zealand and USA. We have made good progress and some breeders have already inseminated cows with imported semen during the previous season, and surely further inseminations are planned for the current breeding season. There is every possibility that in 2 years time we will be presenting polled bulls on our sales.
There have been a number of enquiries for polled bulls from commercial breeders, and we are keen to meet the needs of our clients. As South Devon breeders we are making a concerted effort to bring polled bulls onto the market. The bulls that have been identified in other countries have good figures and we are confident that they will have a positive impact on the present South African herd.
