Robert B. Tate, Brahman breeder, San Antonio, Texas: -
"The prize winning 'get' was outstanding and probably one of the very best 'gets' I have seen in any other country.
The top animals in the Boran classes are outstanding individuals. Since the Boran breed is hardy, already acclimatised to this area and with excellent fleshing qualities as borne out in results of carcass contents, they should remain the outstanding breed of this area. Borans should lead the way in cross breeding which is becoming very popular in all countries in order to obtain this breed's vigour for more weight for age and earlier maturity which will bring more money to the producer."
John Yelland, Hereford breeder, Australia: -
"In selecting both Borans as Supreme Champion and Reserve, we felt that they were showing more muscle development than other breed champions"
P. W. Smith, Senior Boran Society Inspector, January 1999: -
"The Boran cow is God's gift to cattlemen"
Douglas Ralfe, Boran Judge, Natal, South Africa: -
"The drought being experienced in Africa made clear which type I had to choose in the show ring. The hundreds of cattle we saw were very good, with a high percentage I can only describe as excellent. Africa has always had severe droughts from time to time and it was remarkable to see cows in fair condition with very well nourished calves, in extremely hard and dry conditions, despite being kraaled every night which is most taxing."
Bernard Irungu, Daily Nation, 3rd December, 1998: -
"The Boran is the future of pastoralist communities, because it can still tolerate the harsh rangeland conditions better than any cross-breed."
