In the late 80’s we began breeding commercial Angus cattle and quickly recognised we needed reasonable numbers of high quality, high performance bulls at affordable prices and so the seed stock side of our business was born.
Due to the experience gained in our Angus operation in 2005, we also began breeding Santa Gertrudis seed stock for S. Kidman & Co. under contract. This gave us invaluable experience inseminating and performance recording large numbers of cows, producing for sale 300 to 400 bulls annually. We succeeded in lifting key performance indicators for that herd.
At the completion of the almost 10 year Kidman contract and the Wrigley family succession plan, our focus returned to Angus seed stock.
Today the stud is run in conjunction with a large commercial herd and a cropping operation that includes irrigated lucerne. We offer friendly, approachable family service designed to build long haul relationships, always finding time to talk cattle.
