NYS acquired Farm Gemsbok in 2014, as an ongoing beef operation. The farm is 7000ha in total size with 5000 hectares for grazing and 2000 hectare area for game. Since acquiring the farm NYS has increased the herd to 800 of various beef breeds, whilst the game numbers now stand at more than 200, consisting of eland, kudu and even giraffe. We produce about 200 ready for market animals per year. Our trainees are actively involved in the operations giving them an opportunity for valuable experiential learning and enhancing their skills.
Farming activities: Cattle and game farming are the primary farming activities.
