Our Breeding Principles

Principles at the heart of our herd.

Profit

We believe that at a profitable beef enterprise requires cows that calve easy and calve every year. So calving ease and fertility are primary drivers in profitable operations. And cornerstones of our stud.

Balance

No bull or cow can be a one trick pony. So all our breeding decisions rely on the fusion of genetics that bring balance but progressive improvement.

Globally sourced

Whilst Australia remains our main genetic pool, the USA and Canada are also included. Despite production drivers in North America being different to those in Australia, their massive genetic pools are often the source of 'little gems'.
