Webb Black Simmentals & Sim Angus
Located at Glenburn on the slopes of the Great Dividing range in Victoria, Webb Black Simmentals and Sim Angus supplies high performance, commercially focused genetics to the Australian beef industry.
Five years of pressure on leading sires has resulted in Webb Black Simmentals achieving an elite performance profile in the Australian Black Simmental market.
Webb Black takes pride in breeding easy doing, structurally sound carcass bulls showing continuity of breed type. They are stacked full of red meat without losing fat cover and wrapped in a moderate frame.
Webb Black Simmentals has serviced temperate Australia since 2006 and has now expanded into northern Australian sub-tropical and bos Indicus cow herds, providing extra saleable meat yield without hormone implants.
Industry leading genetics
The stud has been an industry leader, setting an Australian on-property auction record in 2011 of $15,500 for Webb Enigma E323, eclipsing that in 2012 with $17,000 paid for Webb Ironman F512.
This is backed by solid genetic gain, putting Webb Black ahead of breed average for birthweight, eye muscle area and for domestic, export and northern terminal dollar indexes.
More importantly for us is the client and agent feedback on the price per kilogram Webb Black blood steers are bringing in the saleyards and the chiller, and females being retained as replacements for breeding purposes.
Our philosophy of continually striving to be daring, different and the first sets us apart from the mainstream.
