Beefmasters

Chosen for their hardiness under the tough African conditions and for their profitable production reputation, the Beefmaster cattle, is the selected choice for the Alzu Stud.

Beefmaster cattle are used as a mother line in the breeding program for reasons of survival, fertility and longevity, with a 90% conception rate contributing to the success of the breed.

Alzu Beefmasters’ Bulls have higher weaning weight and more profit!

We take the guesswork out of buying a bull and provide a performance-tested, commercially orientated Beefmaster packed with the desired genetics that can take your business to another level.

Why choose Alzu Beefmasters

We only select

according to Tom Lasater’s six essential traits on which the breed was originally built.

  • Temperament
  • Fertility
  • Weight
  • Conformation
  • Milk production
  • Hardiness

Strive for reproduction efficiency

We focus on breeding the perfect combo between the Bos Indicus and Bos Taurus cattle, giving us light birth weights and heavy weaning weights, making calving easier on your heifers & cows, and speeding up recovery after calving times getting them ready for the next cycle.

Do performance testing in a controlled environment

At ALZU Beefmasters, we do performance testing in a controlled environment. The testing includes measuring birth weights, weaning weights, 12-month weights, and 18-month weights.

Use direct selection

In other words, select for the desired trait. Don’t play with combinations that could end up highlighting only certain traits. Buying a bull isn’t all that difficult. The secret lies in buying a bull that can add value to your business. And value addition is indeed what Alzu Beesmasters focus on.

Utilise nature’s adaptability traits

Alzu has chosen Beefmaster as our chosen breed because of their hardiness under the tough African conditions. Together with the weaning weight trait, the breed’s other inherent traits are hardiness and adaptability, as well as good milk production.

The Beefmaster in South Africa

The South African Beefmaster is handmade by selection for the tough Southern African conditions. Each animal is the product of dedicated breeder’s selection and performance testing, with emphasis on functional efficiency.

Weaning weights improved by 30%
