Our Herd

 

The Landfall herd is run under commercial conditions with a strong focus on genetics that perform well in the natural environments of Australia in varying seasonal conditions. At Landfall we are continually assessing the performance of our cattle. We understand the importance of the seed stock industry to the Australian Cattleman and the modern markets that they have to supply. This ensures that we have a strong focus on the commercial reality of farming and cattle production.


This management system ensures that the cattle we produce are genuine and suited to commercial production herds. In total some 250 bulls are sold throughout Australia on an annual basis into many different environments and production systems.
A mix of Australian, American and New Zealand genetics has been carefully chosen to ensure our herd is continually improving. The Landfall herd has a balance of both performance and sustainability, our females are highly fertile and possess longevity, the two traits that contribute greatly to the profitability and sustainability of a cow herds. In addition the Landfall herd has for a number of years been one of the highest performing herds on Australasian Angus Breedplan for growth and carcase traits. On farm performance recording has been used for a number of years to ensure the accuracy of our herd EBV’s are continually increasing.
