We love our cattle
Sourcing good stock
Our calves are hand-picked from selected breeder farms or through cattle sale yards. Upon arrival, calves are fed, identified, treated and sorted into unique growing groups. All relevant information about each calf is captured on Sparta’s EID system, which ensures full product traceability – from arrival at Sparta to the point of selling the carcass or batch of processed product into the marketplace.
A global network
During our more than 50 years in cattle feeding, we have forged many business relationships as well as friendships with experts in South Africa and across the world in the field of cattle feeding. These relationships have enabled us to stay abreast of the latest developments and technology as well as set trends in the South African cattle feeding industry. We are privileged to consult with some of the best veterinarians as well as animal nutritionists across the globe.
We Spartans love our beef, and we hope you will too!
The Group was established in 1966 by the late Dirk van Reenen on the farm Sparta in the Marquard district, in South Africa’s Free State province.
