Our farm is situated 80km north of Pretoria near Radium, located in the Limpopo bushveld. Our summers are very hot (32-42°C) with moderate rainfall (500-600mm per annum). This area is also known as the sweet bushveld since the natural grass is very palatable. It consists mainly of white buffalo grass, blue buffalo grass and Smutsfinger grass. This area is also well-known for its tick-borne diseases (heartwater, redwater, anaplasmosis, sweating sickness).
