G. R. Chapman of Amarillo, Texas has pioneered the importation of the Bonsmara breed of cattle into North America. Mr. Chapman imported embryo recipients that calved January-March, 1997. These full-blood calves embody the total North American population of a breed highly prized in its native South Africa for adaptation to heat and drought and for meat quality.
The breed is unique in the world because it was developed through an intensive systematic process for these traits by the world-acclaimed scientist from the University of South Africa, Professor Jan Bonsma. Professor Bonsma converted his unique vision into a unique breed of cattle that holds the promise of accomplishing for North America something attained by no other breed: productivity in hostile, subtropical climates while producing beef preferred by markets in North America and the Pacific Rim.
