Strictly my thoughts on the subject, but to get a male brongersmai up to reproductive maturity in 18 months would require some serious "power feeding". While I understand the monetary issues involved, I feel we have a responsibility to the welfare of the animal and not stress their physiology to these extremes. It is definitely not a healthy situation for them to be pushed that hard, and is a growth rate of at least twice what this species would express in its natural environment. Just my opinion on the topic.
