North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo recently handed over 10 Bonsmara and 10 Brahman stud bulls to 20 farmers in Mahikeng as part of the provincial government’s sire subsidy scheme.

The bulls will improve the quality and reproductive rates of the farmers’ herds while contributing to the farmers’ efficiency in livestock management, said Mahumapelo in a statement.

“We have prioritised agriculture as one of the main economic pillars in our province,” he said.

Some 105 subsistence cattle farmers in the Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality are set to benefit from the sire subsidy scheme this financial year.
