ORYX BREEDING PROJECT – GOLDEN, PAINT, RED AND COMMON ORYX
Golden Oryx (Gemsbok) Breeding Herd
Our young breeding bull Goldie, has exceptional genetics. This certainly augers well for the future of this herd. Goldie’s mother has 45” horns. All the base females currently being covered by Goldie are +40” cows
Red Oryx Breeding Herd
Purchased from Valley Ventures and originally from the well-known Namibian bloodlines.
This breeding project complements our existing Oryx breeding projects. Accordingly, Hillcrest now boast the full species varieties of Oryx genetics.
The breeding objectives are to produce pure-bred Red Oryx from this small group of Namibian animals.
To achieve this, we employ the use of our 40” base cows to add horn length and weather-adaptability to the North West province.
Painted Oryx (Skilder Gemsbok) Breeding Herd
We have imported an exciting and beautiful group of Painted Oryx from Namibia.
Picasso, with striking colours, is our young breeding bull.
All the base females currently being covered by Picasso have +40” horns.
Common Oryx (Gemsbok) Breeding Herd
Our breeding bull is 42,5”.
All females in this group have +40” horns
