R10 Brahman cattle South Africa owned by Llewellyn Labuschagne. Llewellyn ended his career as a teacher during 1970. He went to Eric Bilse with his state pension cheque and bought his first two Brahma n bulls. He rented a farm near Gravelotte, where he ran a dairy. He subsequently bought the farm in 1978 and went to Eric Bilse to buy his first 30 Grey Brahman cows.
In 1980 he started his well-known red herd and from then on he only used genetics from HK Ranch Henry Clay Koontz and CY Yoakum. He bought a new farm in 1983 near Letsitele and moved his farm. Through the years he bred more than 280 red and grey stud bulls, widely used by Brahman breeders across South Africa and Neighboring states in Africa.
Llewellyn continued breeding grey Brahmans but due to demand his emphasis changed in developing the red herd. On a regular basis he visited Brahman breeders in America to keep of the trends and genetics. He imported semen and introduced an embryo program. He ran both herds, red and grey, concurrently. However the red Brahman increased in numbers with a decreasing trend in the grey group.
This changed in 1996 when he bought 25 grey Brahman females from Bob Tecklenburg’s sale. Two year later in 1998 he sold his red herd. He concentrated all his efforts and knowledge in building one of the best grey herds in the industry.
