WELCOME TO ZINABOS BONSMARA

About Us

The late Esias Scheepers and Adinie Scheepers started farming on Gezina, Fouriesburg in 1949 with merino sheep and cattle.

In 1967 he got in contact with Prof. Jan Bonsmara in search for his first Bonsmaras base cows, which later laid the foundation of the Zinabos herd as it exists today. Today we are the 3rd oldest Bonsmara herd in the country that still belongs in the same family. 

The breeding goals have changed, but by exclusive selection and new tools available, we developed the herd into one of the best Bonsmara herds in the world. We model our breeding goals to the economy of cattle farming in South Africa: Fertility, adaptability, excellent mother traits, heritability and longevity.
