A TESTIMONIAL - BONNYDALE BLACK SIMMENTAL CROSS STEERS AND FEEDLOTING

“We have had the pleasure of feeding the Introvigne’s Bonnydale Black Simmental cross steers in our Daniel’s Well Feedlot. The performance and market suitability of these cattle ticked all the boxes for our high end programs including Woolworths Domestic Supermarket and WMPG Japanese 120 Day Grain-fed Export. I would be happy to recommend these genetics to any discerning cattleman looking to supply todays demanding market programs”.

YEARLING BULLS 

TAPPING THEIR IMMENSE POTENTIAL 


Yearlings becoming popular - In Australia and other parts of the world, there is a trend towards using bulls at yearling age (12–18 months). This allows introduction of superior genetic material into herds a year earlier than normal, resulting in faster genetic improvement...

Testimonials

"I started cross breeding with Black Simmental genetics in an attempt to obtain hybrid vigour, to give that extra grunt that our straight Angus was failing to provide. I started with AI using genetics from the US, these results lead me to search Australia looking for suitable bulls.

In 2008 I first purchased a semen share in a Bonnydale Black Simmental stud bull. After waiting to see the results, I was so impressed I returned to inspect the full Bonnydale stud and commercial herds. I attended the stud sale and jointly purchased two Black Simmental flush brothers.

The Bonnydale program is focused on sound structure and easy doing cattle without any short cuts.I believe Bonnydale will continue to produce the highly fertile, soft muscled, well structured bulls that I require to value add my Angus and Simangus herds."
