The MAGIC Odyssey PART 1:
Four MAGIC50 bulls have been promoted to serve at KAGRC, Africa’s largest Bull station
which is located in Lower Kabete, Nairobi, Kenya. After passing through an extended
quarantine period and having passed all veterinary testing requirements they are now
cleared for semen collection. Semen will be availed to all interested farmers through
KAGRC’s existing distribution network which is spread all over Kenya. Presently only very
limited quantities are available. The semen cannot be readily stocked at all KAGRC agents
so please place your order well in advance before your cows need to be inseminated. In
the following catalogue you will find all details of the bull’s ancestry and their production
figures as well as a list of KAGRC distributors.
Over time more MAGIC50 bulls from alternate sire lines will become available as well as
MAGIC25 bulls who could ideally be used on all the daughters sired by MAGIC50. But as
mentioned earlier, the idea of MAGIC breeding is to create an easy-care profitable cow
and this goal should be placed before any strict breeding rules. Every farmer has his own
ideas of what constitutes the perfect cow for him, so ideally choose any of the MAGIC
bulls to achieve this goal for you! If you want to see what offspring sired by MAGIC50
bulls will look like please consult our MAGIC25 page.
The MAGIC Odyssey PART 2:
Even more Incredible News!
The four MAGIC50 bulls are back home! It turned out that all and everything was nothing
but a huge misunderstanding. Yes, the bulls went to Nairobi and yes, about 2000 doses of
semen were collected. But it was the previous Director of KAGRC, Pre-Last-General-
Elections, who had decided to bring them to the Bull Station so they could be of a service
to all Kenyan Farmers. Come new Elections, new President and new Directors and
Management for all of Kenya. Everything that was previously decided, initiated and agreed
upon is down the drain & all decision making & development starts right from the bottom
again. For the coming five years... and then it starts all over again. Long live Democracy!
So unless there is some divine intervention, or some NGO or Development Agency to take
over where Democracy has failed, MAGIC semen for all is shelved...
Following are the most important communications between KAGRC (formerly CAIS) and
us, dating back to 2002 (when New Zealand had long since put their best cross-bred bulls
to AI service...). Our last letter has yet to receive a reply, which will probably not come
until after the next General Elections... Please click on the letters to enlarge for reading
MAGIC semen will be released from
KAGRC for sale any time soon, please
place your orders as early as possible to
be one of the first to receive it!
