We currently have 300 pedigree Aberdeen Angus breeding females and 7 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, New Zealand and American Aberdeen Angus genetics, including from Australia Te Mania Berkley, Te Mania Nebo, Te Mania Legend, from New Zealand Tuwharetoa Regent, and from the best of American genetics Quaker Hill Blindside and Quaker Hill West Coast.

With the introduction of more Australian and American genetics, we are focusing our current and future breeding on the production of animals that are easy to calve, with high fertility, that are docile, milky and can finish off grass in the Summer, whilst producing highly marbled, tender beef resulting in a great eating experience.
Our current stock bulls are:
