Between 1967 - 1994 over 70 Simmentaler animals were imported from Germany & Austria. With Fleckvieh as base South African type Simmentalers have been bred.

Fertility is number one selection criteria by far. We strive for middle of the road, good quality, excellent walking ability, strong eye lid pigmentation, "balanced breeding" EBV's: Acceptable birth masses, above average 200 & 400 day masses & average mature mass. Ease of calving has been obtained. The milk EBV average to above average for the breed.

Ultrasound scanning is done to measure carcass characteristics and obtain EBV's.

"In the next 10 years DNA testing for certain traits (genomics) will become the most important selection criteria. Weighing and measuring will still take place. Combined EBV's will be available. Visual appraisal will always stay important." (Dr. R. Hunsley, 2008)

Animals with the polled factor are increasing steadily in our herd and Wisp-Will have bred 3 AI Simmentaler Bulls.
