After joining the Society the following services are available to acquire females:

  Our Technical Advisors are at your service at all sales under the rules of the Society.

  Approach our Technical Advisors for private sales of inspected females - they visit every breeder in the country and try to maintain high selling standards.

  Contact breeders in your area and insist on objective information viz. EBV’s on the performance pedigree certificate and give preference to animals that passed the  Society’s inspection.

  If you have cross bred Simmentaler/Brahman (any blood share) we will arrange a visit of our Technical Advisor who will give you valuable breeding advise and register animals which comply to the visual standards in the Simbra F1 Herd Book.

Purchasing Tips

  Attendance of a training course is recommended.  The visually perceptible superior and inferior characteristics of animals are dealt with in detail.

  Always insist on the certificate: 1. an animal that has been approved and complies with the requirements of the breeders’ society will have an inspection date in the top right corner of the certificate (Animal inspected and approved on…); 2) an animal without an inspection date has not yet been inspected (calfbook) and may be rejected, but the certificate contains vital performance and breeding particulars; 3) an animal without a certificate has been rejected due to faults or the animal’s parent(s) were rejected.

  The tattoo marks in the animal’s ear must correspond with the identification marks reflected on the certificate.

  Make sure that the seller will inform the Society in writing to transfer the animal/s to your name – you cannot register progeny if this is not done.

  When purchasing cows the calving record is of great importance.  Avoid purchasing cows without an official calving record and ask for the seller’s SIMPRO list.

  When purchasing pregnant cows, the seller must furnish you with full details of the AI or service bull.


Our Breed Advisor will be present at sales which are advertised as “national” and “under the rules of the Society”. 


Members can import animals, semen and / or embryo’s provided the legal application form for an import permit is completed.  Consult the Society for advise on selection and import procedure.
