Where it all started…

The foundation of my sable herds was the acquisition of the best bloodlines from Piet Warren, Thaba Tholo and Chris Visser. I was able to develop my herds with the most sought- after genetics from Magic, Madala, Tequila and Piet, and later added genetics from Black Jack, Tequila, Warren and Explorer.

Introducing our species

Santa Gertrudis Cattle

The Santa Gertrudis has been a major division of the Valley Venture Stud since 1994 and stemmed from the love of Mr. de Jager. The breed that originated from the USA has gone through a lot of change to make it a more suitable animal for South Africa.
