Buffalo Bull Record Price
Game farming seems to be paying well for some folks.
Buffalo Bull Record Price of R26 m
A record price of R26 million was paid for a buffalo bull at an auction in Bela Bela (Warmbaths) on Saturday, 1 September.
The bull is only four years and ten months old and boasts horns that are 51 inches wide with a bos of 16 inches.
Jacques Malan and his wife, Carolien, bred this bull on their farm, Lumarie, near Bela Bela.
The new owners are Piet du Toit and two fellow game farmers in the Rustenburg region.
Senatla, the previous most expensive buffalo bull in South Africa, auctioned for R18 million at the annual Thaba Tholo Auction in 2011. It was bought by a bidder who wanted to remain anonymous.
