Eurimbla Females

With a breeding history dating back to 1974 and a female herd of over 200 head, Eurimbla has been able to select from a wide base of proven genetics.

Eurimbla females are fertile, easy to manage, functional and efficient. The stocking rates at Eurimbla and the need to minimise the amount of time spent handling cattle puts a lot of selection pressure on the stud herd hence the females must be efficient to produce a profitable bottom line.

Selection comes from strong female family lines that have proven themselves over many generations and continue to provide commercially functional cattle.

 

Steer progeny from these female lines are sold to feedlots and are performance tested in those feedlots. In 2005 the complete line of about 50 steers was purchased by Australian Meat Holdings at a premium price to be fed for the Japanese market.

In carcass competitions notable successes have been winning champion heavyweight carcass at Sydney Royal, winning grand champion steer (based on weight gain and carcass) from more than 50 pure-bred and cross-bred steers at Albury, and having the highest average carcass score of all breeds and winning a middle weight carcass class at Sydney Royal in 2004.
