Breed Standards

The Society’s Executive Committee sets and maintains standards, which are applied by a panel of inspectors. Only after inspection and approval can a Boran be registered in the Kenya Stud Book. Inspectors will reject any animal showing a constitutional defect such as excessively pendulous sheaths, lack of pigment, faulty feet and legs, wildness and abnormalities of any description.

In promoting standards, the BCBS provides judges for international shows. It circulates inquiries and information to its members. Borans registered in the Kenya Stud Book are eligible (under Society rules) for live exports and as parent stock for embryo and semen sales. The Society handles export protocol and holds an annual Breed Show and Sale in Nairobi where the top bulls are on offer.
