The Metzger family and the Kamab team want to thank everybody involved to make this Sale happen! The Sale was really good, we enjoyed it and are very satisfied. Obviously, dealing with animals, things do go wrong: we had to withdraw Kamab Donald (Lot 32 : DM14232B) due to an injury which does not seem to heal.

The Simbra Breed

We have been breeding Simbras since 1986. Kamab Simbra stud’s most important goals have always been high fertility and meat production from the veld. Fertility in the females is very strictly observed and only the best bulls get selected. Only with a very strict selection in place can a high quality animal be guaranteed!

About Kamab Simbra

The Metzger family has been farming in Namibia since the late 1880’s. First they started their luck with tobacco and vegetable farming on a smallholding close to Okahandja. Repetitive droughts and a big flood, which took out all fields, convinced Grandfather Ernst Metzger to split with the Family business and move eastward into the Sandveld.

    Sofie’s first Show!

The Agricultural Shows are history now, and it is time to reflect upon them. Kamab Simbra participated in the Gobabis and the Windhoek Agricultural Shows and the conclusion is: we did well! Kamab Simbra is absolutely competitive with all the Breeds out there! In Gobabis, the Simbra Group of 5 won the Interbreed Championship! Kamab Kookaburra was the absolute Star of this Show when he won the Interbreed Bull Championship and then went on to win the Champ of Champs! Well done Kooka and Thomas, the Bull Handler!


The Show in Windhoek was special in so far that it was a National Championship to celebrate the Simbra 30th Anniversary! 9 Breeders participated with 95 cattle! The Heat was on at this special occasion! And the Kamab Team started with a bang: Winner Group of 3, Winner of all Sire progeny classes! Incidently, all progeny shown by Kamab were Kamab Kookaburra calves. Kamab Kookaburra went on to win the Simbra National Championship Bull! Kamab Simbra also won the Standard Bank Bull of the year competition with the progeny of Kamab Kookaburra.


The next hurdle to tackle were the Interbreed Championships. Kamab Kookaburra led the group of 5 to win Reserve Interbreed Championship. Kamab Kookaburra went on to win the National Interbreed Championship Bull, the Select Bull and ended by winning the Champion of Champions title of the Windhoek Show. He is the only Bull ever in Namibia to win all three titles in one year: Interbreed Champion Bull, Select Bull and Champion of Champions!


A big Thank you and a Hand to Thomas, Simon, Bennie and Johnny who were absolutely crucial in achieving these successes. They also won the reserve price for the cleanest and best manned stables of the Show. I do not remember to how many shows Katja and I have been to, nor do I know how many shows Nikki and Nicki have been to, but I know for sure that this was Sofie’s first Show!
