Females/Donors

Donor Program:

We have completed an extensive Embryo program with Rob Pashen of AA Genetics.
We have a bank of embryo’s from the special females purchased at Coolana, Witherswood, Anvil, Wattletop and Stoneypoint Dispersal sales over the last few years.
Dispersal sales are a rare occurrence, and all five of these herds have spent decades developing their programs. Weeran Angus was thrilled to attend all five dispersal sales, and cherry pick the cattle with the most potential in our opinion. This has given us an opportunity to fast track and develop our Stud Herdbook program. The introduction of these genetics add genetic diversity and cutting edge genes to our future product!
This is alongside our own embryo program within the Weeran Herd from our own leading performance females.

Donor: Anvil N382

Donor: Witherswood K116

 

The females of the Weeran Herd are the heart & soul of our operation. The product suitability & production cost outcomes are strongly related to how well suited your cows are for your markets & their grazing environment.

We have the philosophy that the cow herd must have the genetics to satisfy our clients meat quality & production requirements and be able to produce this at a very low cost.

To do this our herd must calve in the spring, rejoin in a short re breeding season (80% herd calve in 4 weeks) adopt a short 5 month lactation period, & to be able to maintain this production efficiency at high stocking rates.

 

In summary the three KEY areas they have to be good at to be highly profitable are:

 

Breeding:

The AI programs have allowed us to source genetics of choice from around the globe & to start the production cycle in a tight system with 80% of the herd being synchronized for breeding.

ET was introduced into our autumn herd in 2014. The aim is to maximise the number of HBR females of a modern genetic profile to allow us to have the depth of A grade females to produce herd sires within the Weeran program.

We also believe by using a number of bulls of our own breeding and type, can only help to stabilise the type and constitution of cattle that work in our environment.

 

Mothering/Lactation:

The lactation is the expensive time in the production cycle so we have kept it as short as possible.

 

Doing Ability:

The cow’s ability to maintain satisfactory body weight throughout the production cycle.
