Come and view the cattle in their true natural condition, straight from the field with no pampering or preparation. Our breeding policy is to let our cows do the work and look after themselves and their calves. No creep is provided for calves before weaning, in order to measure the true maternal performance from grass. After weaning, the heifer calves are reared commercially in their full group. Each July we ultrasound our entire bull and heifer crop for muscle depth and back fat and provide full information for their EBV’s Our cattle have genetics you can rely on for profit. They have been reared to exhibit hardiness, thriftiness and fitness and still perform well. They will work and continue to perform and will not require special treatment and feeding. They will produce calves that fill you with pride.

Where do we differ from most other herds?
We base our selections on traits that directly affect commercial profit.
 Our herd is line-bred for High Natural Performance. Yearling growth is our first selection criteria in our stock bulls.
 Our line-bred herd produces calves with Increased Predictability. Less variation in the calf crop including birth weights and growth rates.
 Our line-bred cattle produce calves with Increased Uniformity of Type. Progeny have good structure and conformation built-in.
 Our line-bred cattle produce progeny with Increased Hybrid Vigour when outcrossed. Hybrid Vigour is about the only FREE input in the production of beef!
 Our line-bred cattle are High in Maternal Traits. Most important for retaining female herd replacements and lifting herd output.
 We have no extreme birth weights and unassisted births has been a priority since my father started the herd in 1969.
Quite simply, we produce easy-doing, uniform, problem-free cattle that leave the most important thing of all ………a profit!
We hope you find heifers to suit you in our offering.
