Breeding Aim
High fertility, hardiness, adaptability and excellent beef qualities, coupled with a docile nature have made the Tuli extremely popular in straight and cross-breeding programmes.

History of the Tuli
The Sanga breed from which Tuli originate from evolved several thousand years ago in Africa. It is thought that the breed was the result of natural mixing of indigenous cattle with the Zebu cattle, which were herded through the continent by nomads during the first Arab invasion. They have most likely existed in their present form for more than 5,000 years. In the early 1940’s, near Tuli, Rhodesia, a South African named Len Harvey began his life’s work establishing an indigenous domestic breed of cattle that could withstand the harsh conditions of the region and still provide quality food and dairy attributes to the native farmers. The Tuli had all of the ruggedness that thousands of years of evolution in Southern Africa had fostered, yet still maintained a high beef and dairy quality that rivaled established breeds. These characteristics are the driving force behind the Tuli’s growing popularity today.

Characteristic
Tulis are moderate framed cattle and have three basic coat colours – red, yellow and white. These colours enable them to adapt to intense sunlight. Their coat is smooth, they have moderate sized ears and dewlap and they can be horned or polled.
