Founded in 2007 by nature enthusiast and passionate game farmer Jaco Troskie – whose family boasts a long and illustrious tradition of cattle farming – Unyati was born out of Jaco’s pioneering vision to ethically and sustainably breed superior wildlife of outstanding pedigree.
The acquisition of a highly prized herd of buffalo of superior lineage from Uganda, which was isolated for 27 years to add to its quality and sought-after status as a disease-free herd, laid the foundation for the business.
Jaco proceeded to invest in top quality buffalo bulls like the strapping Bhekifa, magnificent Stompie and impressive Etzebeth, and partnered with renowned game breeders to introduce superior bloodlines to his herds, further enhancing their genetic diversity.
One such partnership with industry stalwart, Piet du Toit, resulted in the joint establishment in 2012 of the acclaimed buffalo herd with Matetsi as breeding bull. This extraordinary herd features Tanzania, a 43″ buffalo cow regarded as one of the largest buffalo cows in captivity in South Africa.
We have since incorporated top sable genetics into our business, including remarkable bloodlines from Piet Warren, Thaba Tholo and Dries Visser. This includes Dionysus, a Western Zambian sable bull that is tipped to become one of South Africa’s top Western Zambian bulls.
We enjoy significant partnerships with top breeders Norman Adami, BJ Vorster, Piet Warren and Neil Rex, and with Paul Neethling, which features the exceptional 34″ roan bull, Kulu.
