The Tuli breed as we know it today, originated from the Sanga breed which evolved several thousand years ago, on our African continent, adapting over time to our challenging environment and conditions. Tuli cattle come in four basic coat colours - red, gold, ivory and dun.
These colours and their sleek shiny coats have enabled them to adapt well to the intense sunlight typical of our region. To read an interesting article about the Tuli coat colour and its genetics, click HERE.

Tuli cattle result in very high quality beef, renowned for its flavour, tenderness, juiciness and excellent marbling. To produce highly marketable, superbly tender meat, with lowest cost and effort, Tuli is the clearest choice.
