“The Angus-Simmental calf, like a first-cross Merino, has a bigger body-fame. It’s a larger beast with more capacity and carcass, giving a greater return on investment through cents per kilogram.
Everyone wants more bang for their buck but you must produce what the market recognizes and values.
When it comes to calving, the Angus has the calving ease and the Simmentals with their bigger frame and pelvis, complement each other.
I believe Webb Blacks are on the right track with their sire selection and breeding bulls suited to my long term goals, a great partnership with a win-win for both parties.’’
