Cattle have been farmed at Vredenheim for many years. Whilst we originally operated as extensive farmers, we switched to Angus because of their small calves at birth and the good growth of the animals from birth to wean. Our herd of winelands Angus originated in 1990, when the 20 top cows from Biggersberg Stud in Dundee, Kwazulu Natal were transferred to Stellenbosch.
Today, Vredenheim’s Angus Stud is renowned for producing award-winning cattle of a consistently high quality and pedigree. We invite you to browse through our awards and certificates here.
Angus are able to graze on nearly every type of grass and so the breed is well suited to Vredenheim with our variety of pastures: kikuyu, oats, medics and rye grass.
Angus is the largest cattle breed in the world, so you can’t miss them in our pastures, and Vredenheim is one of the few places where you will see zebra and Angus grazing together.
