Our Story


About our cattle

Our beef is pasture raised, no-GMO, no-Hormone.

Our herd consists of Bonsmara beef, a unique South African breed known for its adaptability, meat quality, and productivity.

Bonsmara beef is highly regarded for its exceptional eating qualities. It is known for its tenderness, succulence, and well-marbled texture, which contributes to its rich flavor profile. The meat is typically juicy, flavorful, and has a good balance of intramuscular fat, which enhances the eating experience.

At Jodev Farms, we make use of Artificial insemination (AI) which is a widely practiced reproductive technique used in the cattle industry. It involves the deliberate introduction of semen from a carefully selected bull into a cow’s reproductive tract, bypassing the natural mating process. AI offers several benefits and has become a preferred method for cattle breeding.

We use Wagyu Beef semen – Wagyu beef is a highly prized type of beef known for its intense marbling, tenderness, and unique flavor. It is a result of careful breeding, specialized feeding practices, and meticulous care, making it a delicacy enjoyed by meat connoisseurs around the world. 

Whilst our cattle aren’t classified and sold as Wagyu Beef yet, our customers certainly enjoy the early stages of marbling and flavour that the Wagyu artificial insemination adds to our Bonsmara Beef!

Planned Grazing

At the heart of regenerative farming is a focus on soil preservation and the promotion of diverse, perennial grasses and forage crops. By practicing rotational grazing, we allow our livestock to graze on one section of land while allowing another section to rest and recover.

This approach mimics the natural movement of grazing animals and encourages the growth of deep-rooted grasses, which help improve soil structure, water retention, and nutrient cycling. Our cattle are always grazing on pastures, never in feed-lots! They are moved 4 times a day which allows them to have a constant source of nutritious grasses.

This also allows our cattle to eat nutrient rich grasses throughout the year. The result is healthier soils that are more resistant to erosion and have a higher capacity to isolate carbon from the atmosphere.
