Afrikaner

Afrikaner

Afrikaner cattle developed from the native Hottentot cattle of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. 

Afrikaners are medium-sized cattle with loose skin and large drooping ears. Bulls have the typical Zebu hump.  They vary from a light tan to a deep cherry red. The animals have creamy white horns.  The low maintenance Afrikaner is heat-tolerant and well adapted to withstand harsh conditions. Tick-resistance is quite adequate.  They have a good temperament and are easier to handle than most Brahman-derived breeds.
