Arla is owned by Mrs Ulla van Biljon and managed by Mrs Silvia van Biljon, who are both passionate farmers. Arla Simmentaler Stud started breeding with twenty females, growing to ninety cows and at present producing ca. eighty calves yearly.
Karla Brahman stud was started 2012 by buying a few cows/heifers from the OKB and ERP studs and at present producing ca. eighty calves yearly. The commercial heard consists of three hundred cows, mainly Simmentaler and Brahman cross-bred.

Twenty Simmentaler and Brahman bulls are selected annually from the stud for selling as breeding stock. Therefore, a strict selection of only the best genetics is the main goal of Arla Simmentaler and Karla Brahman. The focus point is on dark pigmentation, fertility, milk and high weaning weight. Farm Buschbrunnen produces its own fodder, nl maize and blue buffalo grass (cenchrus cillaris), for the prupose of optimum feeding.

With many years of experience, the Buschbrunnen team believes in producing good quality animals, in the past and for many many years to come.
