Annually a Go West Production auction is held in the 3rd week of October on a Thursday,  11h00, at GWK Kimberley. The group consists of:

  1. Donkerhoek Tuli Stud of Ben and Colin Raath, Britstown and Tarkastad,
  2. Amelia Stud of Leslie Cook, Douglas,
  3.  Alpha and Omega stud of Alwyn Marx, Burgersdorp,
  4. West Front Stud of Rikus van der Merwe, Britstown,
  5. HBH Tuli stud of Russel en Ed Clark, Dordrecht,
  6. Ganna Tuli stud of Giel van Niekerk, Kimberley
  7. Guest sellers that meet our standards are also allowed to sell at our auction, if we are short on stock. What makes this auction so unique, except for the quality of animals on offer and the fact that Kimberley is centrally situated in South Africa, is that such a wide genetic pool is offered at one auction. We offer annually a total of 32 bulls and about 120 SP/commercial female. Only our best animals are offered at this auction.

All animals are strictly selected by members of the group beforehand to ensure that they meet our standards. Stefan van Wyk is also utilised as selector/marketer.
