Santa Gertrudis Austrailia

Necessity brought about the creation and development of the Santa Gertrudis breed of beef cattle.

It was desirable in the eyes of those at the King Ranch, Texas, USA where the breed was developed, that other cattlemen should enjoy the benefits of increased production, even in harsh conditions that could be obtained by these cattle.

Since arriving in Australia Santa Gertrudis have gone on to become one of the leading breeds of beef cattle excelling in the areas of crossbreeding, weightfor age, food conversion efficiency and daily weight gain.

Santa Gertrudis use a stringent classification system which ensures any cattle branded with an ´S´ or ´S´ meet the minimum Standard of Classification and are accepted into the Association Stud Book
