Multicloured Nguni Cattle

"I have dreamed of my coloured cattle in the hills, shields in fields of yellow and brown" - Jonny Clegg & Juluka




In the past few years there has been a growing interest in the Nguni cattle of South Africa's Zulu, Xhosa and Swazi people.  International furniture designers and interior decorators, hotels and lodges are seeking the multi-coloured hides.  Progressive farmers are seeking the breed for their resistance to disease, ticks and other parasites.
