A Northern Cape man will have to fork out thousands of rand after a deal involving the purchase of two Tsessebe cows went sour.

Tommy Robertson has been ordered to pay the money after he waived his contractual agreement to buy two certified pregnant Tsessebe cows. It all went wrong when one of the cows died and another failed to calve.

In 2015, Robertson approached a livestock agent to procure and deliver the cows to his farm in good condition.
