Yeahhh ..... I see that that Cyril Ramaphosa paid a lot of money , buying a herd of those Ankole cattle from Central Africa that have the HUGE horns , and so now the new thing amongst " game " farmers are also to "invest " in these animals :O^

Translated :

Agri-news : Ankole’s make game prices seem tame.

Ankole-cattle made record prices at an auction which was held in Mpumalanga on behalf of Mr Cyril Ramaphosa.

Records were broken at the Ntaba Nyoni Ankole-auction which was held on Wednesday on behalf of mr Cyril Ramaphosa on the farm Goedehoop’s Highveld Bomas , beween Ermelo and Chrissiesmeer in Mpumalanga .

The highest price for a bul was R640 000 en the bull that before that , was sold for R610 000. “ It was one of our best auctions yet “ , said Ms Sonet Coetzee of Vleissentraal Ermelo .

All 80 lots were sold at very good prices . Cows reached between R140 000 and R160 000 each , heifers from R70 000 to R96 000 , and bulls for hunting , were sold at an average of R30 000 each .
