Bull Description

Bongani is a unique sire who combines exceptional Index, production and Type! Imported as an embryo through Masterrind’s ET program from America to Germany, Bongani offers a unique, modern sire stack for European breeders. His sire Blowtorch is a popular Silver son and his Dam scored VG87 as a 2 year old, she has just been classified EX90 as a 4 year old. She is a daughter of OCD Supersire 9882 VG87, one of the breed’s emerging brood cows with countless sons over +2700 GTPI & 50 daughters over +2700 GTPI, including 6 over +2800 GTPI!

Expect Bongani’s daughters to be well-balanced, correct cows with good udders. His ability to transmit high production makes him a profitable choice for any mating program! He would also suit both housed and grazing systems.
