About Karla & Arla
Arla Simmentaler originated from the well-known Buschbrunnen Simmentaler Stud, which was started by Mr H.D. van Biljon (1968) and sold in 2003. Arla is owned and managed by Mrs Ulla van Biljon, who is a passionate farmer, being involved with Simmentaler breeding since Janunary 1976. Arla Simmentaler Stud started breeding with twenty females, growing to sixtyfive cows and at present producing ca. sixty calves yearly. The commercial heard consists of three hundred cows, mainly Simmentaler and Brahman cross-bred.
Fifteen Simmentaler bulls are selected annually from the stud for selling as breeding stock. Therefore, a strict selection of only the best genetics is the main goal of Arla Simmentaler. The focus point is on dark pigmentation, fertility, milk and high weaning weight. Farm Buschbrunnen produces its own fodder, nl maize and blue buffalo grass (cenchrus cillaris), for the prupose of optimum feeding.
With many years of experience, the Buschbrunn team believes in producing good quality animals, in the past and for many many years to come, with the senior team handing the reigns over to the younger team.
