The Meyer family has been farming Brahmans since the 1960s – and it shows. In 2014, the stud had the top performance herd in the country and the best cow of the breed.

Loriza Brahman at Nietverdiend near the Botswana border in the North West is one of the breed’s foundation herds in South Africa. The herd goes back to 1960 when Nico Meyer and his wife Julene imported three Stuart heifers and a Hudgins bull from Texas. Three heifers from Howard Parker’s well-known V8 herd followed in 1965, and four years later, a bull from the Sugarlands herd was introduced.

Through performance testing and natural selection on the veld, this genetic base has been moulded into a hardy Brahman herd with remarkable uniformity, predictable fertility, excellent milk production, adaptability and a calm, stable temperament. ‘Loriza’ is a compound name incorporating the names of the couple’s two children, Louis and Mariza. Today, the second and third Meyer generations – Louis, his wife Christa, and their twin sons Louis and Stefan – are actively involved in Tommiesrus, the family’s diversified farming enterprise.
