DAMASCUS

World Record Sable Bull 

 Son of 52 4/8+" Rapella

"The biggest challenge in the industry is bringing together the right bull and the right cow, those two animals whose genetics just work together"... and what happens if you get it right?

Damascus's sire is the well-known Rapella 52 4/8+", and his dam is a 33 2/8" cow from Tswalo. He has the genetics of the most well-known Matetsi line, and the diversity of his maternal line is what was needed to cause that genetic spark that broke records.

With intensive, well-planned breeding, we are succeeding in our goal to breed animals with optimal horn length and fertility. We are excited to see the results of the breeding program we are currently working on, in 2028. But...

It is with great pride that we can announce that Damascus measures an astonishing 58 1/8" at the tender age of 76 months (6 years, 4 months). This makes Damascus the biggest breeding bull in the world! With an average growth of 3/8" per month for the last 12 months.

We still expect incredible milestones from him!
