Tuli Production Sale 2020 -
A different, Online Experience for interested Farmers

Our Tuli Production Sale was held on 22 September 2020 - Online, rather than in the usual way to which all of us are accustomed, making this a very different experience for all involved.

The Sale had to be conducted in this manner in response to the many and various regulations around Covid19 which make the gathering of many people in one place for any purpose, so complicated and difficult.

Despite these rather unusual and challenging circumstances, the sale did go reasonably well, and showed how technology can be utilised to make such a sale happen regardless of the hurdles and difficulties currently experienced here in Zimbabwe, and indeed, globally.

The Tuli Cattle Society warmly congratulates
stud breeder Anne Cooke on attaining the highest bull price, and
Oscar Johnson for attaining the highest heifer prices.

Tuli-Cattle-Colour-variations An in-depth look at the Coat Colour Genetics of the Tuli

The subject of coat colour in cattle is important from both an adaptation and economic standpoint.

An animal with a dark-coloured hair coat can be at a disadvantage because it is more vulnerable to intense radiation of short-wave and heat rays that elevate body temperature, thus impairing the animal’s physiological well-being and performance.

The Tuli breed portrays a variety of coat colours, ranging from white to yellow to red, with all possible shades in between, but excluding black.
