NESLO GREY HERD

Our grey herd base was developed from Cherokee, Allawah,  Wairuna and Waverly bloodlines in the 70’s.

One of our goals is  to produce cattle that are both tender and feed efficient.. Most of our grey sires have at least 4 genestars for tenderness,and 7or8 for feed efficiency.

While we aim to maintain a core base that is pure old Australian bloodlines, we also outcross by using sires with modern genetics in conjunction with an extensive annual AI program. Recent prominent sires in the herd have been Lancefield Kalbar and Neslo 2306 Mr International. An additional sire, Glengarry Joker, by a son of Brahrock White Hawk Man was purchased at the 2008 RBWS . We look forward to his progeny.

LEANY VALE SNOWY RAMBO
