Herd Sire Profiles

Since its inception, the focus of the Fossil Creek Angus herd has not deviated. We aim to produce genetics that reward our clients with the greatest return for the least input.

We sell not only our genetics but a programme of integrity, unqualified customer support and product guarantee.

Our policy is to select herd sires that exhibit superior maternal strength, excel in structural soundness and have the ability to transmit the traits relating to longevity and excellent constitution for harsh environments. We also recognize the requirement to respond to market signals. Our programme utilizes AI and ET using carefully screened bulls from both USA and Australia to enhance carcass traits where we feel necessary. However these bulls have to stand rigorous scrutiny and not deviate from our stated breeding policies. We aim to maintain fertility and high carcass yield as a priority. Multitrait selection has been the cornerstone of this programme and will continue to dominate the selection process.
