A disease free herd is the starting point for Beef Cattle breeding. The breeding cows are vaccinated annually and accredited free from BVD, IBR and Leptospirosis. The older cows are tested and monitored for Johnnes disease (Risk level 1 since 12/2/16). Great care is taken to ensure and maintain the highest standards in Herd Health, which results in high levels of productivity and animal welfare.
The performance of all our animals is recorded using the Estimated Breed Value (EBV) system. This is a science based approach to genetic improvement and we are continually trying to improve the herd as this is the most economical way of improving the profitability of the livestock enterprise.
