A record-equalling 263 beef cattle studs representing 33 breeds are involved in the nation’s biggest on-farm open day event, the 2014 Stock and Land Beef Week from January 28 to February 5.January 21, 2014 4:04am
Mistletoe Limousin at Greta South will celebrate its 21st birthday this year.
Denis and Pam O’Connor raise the animals on pasture.
The females are easy calvers, quiet, with good breedplan growth figures. Careful selection of sires has enhanced the easy calving, docility and growth attributes — including weight at 200 to 400 days.
Mr O’Connor introduced the docility score when he started the stud and said the animals’ docility was now ‘‘magnificent’’. He is very happy with the stud animals and invites people to visit the property during Beef Week, where they will be able to walk among the animals and be impressed by their excellent temperaments.
Dauphin, Ionesco, Obiwan and the new French pure polled genetics SVL Polled Exclusive, Donna Valley Polled Enterprise, Cyan Po and Jim Dandie are examples of sires used at Mistletoe that exhibit the desirable traits of docility, calving ease, growth and muscle.
Progeny of Mistletoe bulls are regular sale toppers at the Wangaratta Livestock exchange.Directions
