Blackwood Matetsi

Blackwood Matetsi From Matetsi area, Zim

This 100% symmetrical, large bodied, truely pure Matetsi bull, is from the late Ian Blackwood's herd which he imported directly from the Matetsi area in Zimbabwe in 1993.  At the stage when we bought this bull from Mr Blackwood, his Zimbabwe herd was managed as a closed herd, at that stage making it one of very few truely "Matetsi" herds in SA, originating from the Matetsi area in Zimbabwe.
"Blackwood Matetsi" measured 42.5", which is not as long as we would have liked, but we decided to use him regardless, due to the excellent average horn length and very large body frames of the herd that he originated from.  
He has bred some excellent offspring combined with our cows.  Unfortunately he broke his left horn off close to the base.
