Why choose our cattle?

FERTILITY

 
All our cows must calve every year, rejoin in a timely manner and bring an acceptable calf to weaning. Otherwise they are culled. Our cows are run in dryland  paddocks and our breeding herd is renowned as one of the most fertile in the area. 
 

STRUCTURE

All our bulls are externally assessed by Liam Cardile of Beef Xcel. Only those who pass this rigorous structural assessment are offered for sale as breeders or used in our herd. 

Liam assesses some of the top Angus seedstock herds in eastern Australia. 

CARCASS

Liam has been scanning all our young bulls and heifers for the past eight years. This allows us to make selection decisions and benchmark the progress of our cattle.
 

MARBLING

We realise the value of marbling in producing a premium eating product through our steers. Marbling is the last fat to be laid down and the first to be lost. By selecting for marbling, we are selecting for better doing cattle. Our selection for marbling has been augmented by carcass data from our steers consigned to JBS.

TEMPERAMENT

Our cattle are very quiet and we are particularly strict with the temperament of our bulls. 

GENETICS

 We run a large A.I. programme each year which provides us with the opportunity to use top Australian and overseas genetics. We also supplement our genetic progress with bull purchases. We have not purchased a Stud cow in 12 years. 
 
 

SUSTAINABILITY

Our cows are long lived, fertile and tough. If you look after them, they will look after you. They have been bred and raised in tough environmental conditions and are adapted to the harsh Riverina climate.
