• About Kochbo Santas

    The Kochbo Santa Gertrudis Stud

    is situated in the Western part of South Africa about 100km North-West of Cape Town at Moorreesburg. The Koch Family started the stud on the 4th of June1992 after they had Simental cattle and then changed to Santas.

    Kochbo is a proudly run family business which consists of mainly wheat and pig farming and the Santa Gertrudis cattle. The stud started when my father bought Santa females from Namibia and from well known breeders in SA, such as Valley Venture and Sansa. Our first stud bull was bought at the Koos Locks sale and he gave us a good starting line on breeding good females.

    At Kochbo Santas the cattle are raised on natural pasture, oats in winter and in the summer on the wheat fields after harvest without supplementation, through varying seasonal conditions. Good constitutions are developed through this system of grazing, and only easy doing livestock are retained in the herd. Breeders are only given a supplement in drought conditions. Weight gain ability is a key economic factor. Only bulls of high weight gain are used in the herd to ensure this benefit is passed onto their progeny.

    Longevity in both bulls and females is another benefit this management system delivers. The criteria for selection are size, body capacity, structural soundness, desirable muscle pattern and disposition.

    Fertility, milk and good udders are also very important factor and are monitored closely. Bulls are semen tested before joining. Heifers are joined at 15 months and all females are preg tested annually. I usually A.I. all my heifers the first time with new bulls from SA, USA and Australia just to bring in new blood lines in the herd. Today we are confident that our heifer and bull replacements, going into stud or commercial herds, will reproduce the quality expected of them.

    The year 2013 treated us good when we took part in our first SA National Championships where we won the Junior Champ bull, Inter breed Junior bull and did great with our young animals. Franco Koch also became the young breeder with the most points.

    We also purchased the Grand Champion bull from Willie de Jager and can't wait for his progeny.

  • VV 08106

    SA Grand Champion 2013


    SA Grand Champion 2013 and Interbreed Gold cup winner. We greatly admire his thickness, correct structure and character. It is a wonderful sight to see him striding around effortlessly and purposely in his cow herd.

  • Shotgun KT1015

    SA Junior Champ


    Shotgun had a very successful show career and was the SA Junior Champ and Interbreed Champ in 2013. He showed terrific body development at a young age and outstanding weight gain ability. Shotgun has a friendly nature, well balanced with a good sheath, great definition of muscle and a lot of width in his hindquarter. After the show he was sold to Santarific Santas.

  • Obelix KT0713

    He had a phenomenal constitution


    Obelix is a sire that has contributed so much to our herd and probably the breed. He had a phenomenal constitution with good muscle and this is usually very evident in his progeny. Two thirds of my 2013 National show team was of his calves.

  • H&B Hef-A-nizer 86/9 USA semen imported.

    Good breed character


    While he is not the tallest bull in the world, he carries a ton of meat or muscle on an extremely long structurally sound body. The combination of these features with good breed character produces a very well balanced bull that is appealing to the eye.

  • Leader KT0410

    Leader's brilliance


    This is a bull that you are really going to have to look out for. His breed character, softness, sheath, structure and temperament are exactly what the Kochbo stud is looking for. The calves that we have seen on the ground so far seem to be mirroring Leader's brilliance.

  • RH0523 Showboy

    Balanced combination of ideal Santa characteristics


    Showboy is a very pleasing bull to look at. His eye appeal comes from a balanced combination of ideal Santa characteristics, being a cherry red colour with a slick coat type, a masculine strong head with a kind eye, a totally correct frame covered with heaps of soft muscle. His sheath is ideal and his testicles are large. Showboy is stamping his progeny and his daughters are proving to be great breeders of good quality calves.

  • VV 474

    Huge body volume and breeds a lot of quality.


    VV was on the age of 6 when we bought him from Willie de Jager and where he done well in his herd. He is a bull with a huge body volume and breeds a lot of quality in his females. He was retained in the stud to maintain weight gain ability in the herd, and his progeny have inherited this desirable trait. Fertility is also another strong point and his also the father of the well-known Kochbo Shotgun.

  • Rocco

    SA Grand Champion 2013


    He's a bull with a lot of stile and had a great show career. Good bodied bull and he showed us a good growth on a young stage. He's sold to Ronnie Brink eRBee Santas.
