Zimbabwe Boran Breeders Society Sale

Join us at the 9th NATIONAL ZBBS SALE

The annual Zimbabwe Boran Breeders Society (ZBBS) production sale showcases registered stock such as bulls, young heifers, pregnant heifers and cows with calves.

All Boran on sale have been inspected and are sold under the auspice of ZBBS.

The ZBBS mid-year production sales have become highly anticipated, with this year’s 9th one continuing the upward trajectory of the breed’s popularity.

The ZBBS

Boran cattle were introduced into Zimbabwe in late 1993 via an embryo transplant programme.

The then Boran Cattle Society was formed in 1996 but failed to become active due to low animal and breeder numbers. The Society was resuscitated in 2011 as The Zimbabwe Boran Breeders Society (ZBBS). Since then, the ZBBS has continued to play a pivotal role in promoting the breed’s suitability for the country’s farming conditions. With the Society’s efforts, the breed continues to rise in popularity in our national cattle herds, offering a profitable and efficient solution for cattle producers nationwide.
