In 1999, the herd of Manasan Farm has : 

  • 110 purebred Angus cows (50% red and 50% black)

  • 21 bulls in the (Asbestos) bull test station

  • 30 heifers

  • 5 mature bulls


Our sires and semen are chosen to increase calving ease, to reduce birth weights, to maximize milk production on the females, as well as to obtain the best possible marbling in the meat. 
Manasan Farm has always put priority on buying high quality bulls such as SOUTHOLM BARLAD 2H, 4S CLASSIC, WK STARSTRUCK 121, KBJ RED GOLD REDGEIS 246 '97, all chosen from highly respected farms.  In fact, only bulls with the highest factors of  repetitiveness are used for reproduction purposes. 

This is why today, the quality of the herd at Manasan Farm is renowned.
