Past & Present
At Alden Buffalo, we have only ever had single-sired herds. The breeding bulls that we use are selected for masculinity, correct male conformation, hyper fertility, and good horn shape and size.
We are currently using three 50+" breeding bulls on three separate herds, namely: Leonidas (50 1/8” East African x Addo), Kipketer (50 1/2" @ 6 years 11 months, Kenyan bull x East African/Addo) and Jelimo (50 1/2" at 6 years 6 months, Kenyan bull x Kruger)
Prior to Leonidas being introduced, we used the Kenyan Bull (46 5/8” East African) and Juggernaut (43 ½” Madikwe).
Using new quality bulls on each successive generation gives rise to a legacy of excellent genetics being built up. Once one reaches third, fourth and further generation levels, a single animal will posses all of the high-quality genetics from the previous breeding bulls.
