Establishment of the Grangeburn Herd
Since the establishment of the registered herd in 2013, the year which one
registered cow was purchased, the herd grew rapidly to maintain a quality herd of 90 registered females which were originally based on Woonallee, Wormbete and Langton Gate genetics.
In 2018 we travelled to Canada and the United States of America in search of Simmental genetics that would fit Australian requirements as a source of outcross polled genetics that could boost the Australian Simmental's performance without compromising structure and quality.
A selection of donors have now been through flush programs to supply Grangeburn with elite North American and American genetics to boost the existing Australian genetics in the program. These calves are now on the ground at home and we are super excited about their futures!
Through the sourcing of superior cow families and breed leading sires from
around the globe, we believe we have the ability to produce Simmental cattle to sire produce that suit a range of markets.
