The first cattle were
purchased in 1991 with the purchase and
development of Rivera Farm in the Oranjeville district. The
stud was registered in 1997 with Stoffel and Elise Saaiman
managing the Studs. The Simbras started with the purchase of
the Oramsus Stud and these were bred to Red, Manso and Gyr
Bulls. In the year 2000 Graeme and Margi Currin took over the
Studs with the aim of breeding pure bred Simbras.
