About Us

Meaker Brafords is a Stud owned by Animal Scientist Dr Johan Meaker and his son Jan Meaker.

We have a passion for the SA Braford and have been breeding Brafords since 1985 when Johan purchased his first Braford bull from one of South Africa’s foundation herds, Z4T Brafords.

Johan is one of the founding members and has served as president of the SA Braford Society for many years.

In December 2009 Jan resigned as senior metallurgical engineer at Samancor, Witbank when he and Carla decided to farm full time.

Our aim is to produce beef efficiently and profitably. Fertility is a given.

Johan farmed successfully with the SA Braford in the Dundee district of KZN and from 2006 in the Warden district of the OFS, where we still farm today.

Our animals are performance tested and our herd participates in the SA Braford group BreedPlan.

Our animals have also performed exceptionally well in the Vrede Veld Bull Club.
