The Simbra breed is one of the numerically strongest,
largest and most popular breeds of cattle in Southern
Africa. This is a remarkable achievement in view of the
fact that the breed has only been registered in Southern
Africa for a relatively short period of time. Although
American breeders have worked on the Simbra idea since
1960, the Simmentaler Society only decided in 1985 /
1986 to develop the Simbra concept.
