Why Develop a New Breed

Our desire to develop these genetics arose from the Industry’s appetite for an outcross to the Euro influence.

This influence which has provided many positive attributes has nonetheless resulted in herds of cattle unable to finish and with unsuitable hair types to handle the environment. We believe that ‘Redfords’ with its sleek hair type and still maintaining a straight red colour will provide a great outcross.

‘Redfords’ will also provide a successful outcross to many Red herds such as Santa Gertrudis and Droughtmasters. We now have lines of progeny from these other Red breeds sired by Redfords. They have all maintained their straight red colour with many added beneficial attributes; sleeker coats, greater length and tidy sheaths.
