    Do the breeders use a bull like that for AI or just let him chase cows once a year as nature calls?

    That is no doubt a BIG Kudu. What Outfitter / Rancher owns him?

    Tembani wildlife ....and yes did measure at 75.25 ". He is used in a breeding program . The natural breeding time for Kudu is right now.

    Providing his "sons" take after him, they will wind up being studs as well. If all goes well, in a few years 75" will be the "new" 55". I won't see it but maybe my grandson Trip will.:):)

    I'm not involved in SA breding but from what I understand, the AI method hasn't produced very good results with kudu. Most of these bulls, are put in an area with a group of cows to breed as naturally as possible.... inside an enclosure :)
