Proven genetics provide the best animals, and our bulls have been used in stud and commercial operations over straight Hereford herds & cross bred herds with good feedback. Today we have cows weighing 700kg, & bulls making up to 900kg off grass in a good season. At the end of the day, its weight out the gate that is most important for you.
SIRES THAT SHAPE OUR HERD 2022
We believe in using sires that are functional & demonstrate traits suited to the Australian commercial markets & our variable climate to thrive in all conditions. Peter looks for structural correctness and athleticism as well as fertility. Above average breeding and performance are a given; our bulls are the best we can breed.
Our breeding principles are straight forward. Our cattle must meet our clients’ expectations throughout Australia. We test our breeding principles for performance under commercial conditions, and profit in your pocket. We grass feed our bulls so they are healthy and ready to work as soon as you’ve bought them. We calve our heifers at 2 years old, and our cows must have a calf each year to stay in our herd. This is backed by EBVs, raw data, & DNA to determine the breeding potential of our cattle herd, so you know how our bulls will work in your herd.
