Stud Game Breeders®
Stud Game Breeders® is the name the game industry has come to associate with top quality rare species. An auction is held annually on the first Saturday of September at Mbizi lodge, 10km west of Bela Bela (Warmbaths).
All six members of the group are established game breeders and have built a reputation of supplying excellent genetics to the industry. Our vision is to continually seek out and improve the genetic material in our quest to reproduce quality stock that has been eliminated through excessive hunting, disease and habitat loss. Stud Game Breeders®’ goal is to breed animals in line with the record specimens that were recorded in the early 1900's. Magnificent animals, like the buffalo bull of 62 6/8", serve as a benchmark to what Stud Game Breeders® aim to achieve. We believe that we have made significant progress in bringing animals such as this back to life again.
Members of our group do not breed exclusively for the trophy hunting market but focus on game breeders who genuinely seek to breed outstanding animals for future generations. We, as members of Stud Game Breeders®, are proud of the relationships we have established with buyers who have supported us over the years.
The annual Stud Game Breeders®auction is a unique type of catalogue auction, which we believe is the main reason for our success. Animals are delivered directly from the breeder's farm onto the buyer's farm with minimum stress on the animals. A pre-sale farm visit allows buyers to view and judge the animals they wish to purchase in their natural environments, as well as having the opportunity to view the mother stock and sires. With boma auctions it can be difficult to judge the genetics. Stud Game Breeders®’ aim is to supply exceptional animals in the best condition to buyers.
Stud Game Breeders® has, over the past few years, been seen as a leader in the industry. This is not only relevant when it comes to the animals on auction, but also to the ratios and composition of the various lots. We aim to accommodate the buyer who is looking to not only add a few animals to their herd, but also to the new entrant in the game industry wishing to purchase volume.
Stud Game Breeders®’ focus is on offering top quality rare species to the game industry. People attending our auction can be assured of a well-run event in every aspect.
Members of Stud Game Breeders® have played an integral part in assisting new entrants to the wildlife industry with their setup and planning. We welcome visitors onto our farms to share our vast experience and discuss matters of mutual interest.
Stud Game Breeders® have set new standards for the game industry. Our aim is to continue to bring value to the wildlife industry as a whole. Our members work closely together under a strict code of conduct with a combined vision to produce the best possible animals.
Stud Game Breeders®’ auctions have been a success story for the past few years and will continue to be for many years to come. For all who take game farming seriously this is an auction not to be missed.
