We currently have 145 pedigree Aberdeen Angus breeding females and 6 pedigree Aberdeen Angus stock bulls. Our herd is expanding rapidly and is now a closed herd which means that all our replacement stock will be home bred. We are striving to produce animals in the 1-10% of the breed Estimated Breeding Values.

We have an ongoing programme of Artificial Insemination and Embryo Transplantation where we have introduced some of the best of Australian and American Aberdeen Angus genetics, including from Australia the superstar that is Te Mania Berkley and also Tuwharetoa Regent, and from the best of American genetics Quaker Hill Blindside.
