At Little Meadows we strive to produce efficient genetics which suit today’s modern markets, both for producing quiet temperament, functional, fertile, easy calving, low-maintenance females that cope with a wide range of environmental conditions.
We also strive to produce bulls which perform at an elite level and produce progeny that excel on pasture or in the feedlots, and are suitable for breeding replacement females and steers which excel in the domestic and export market place.
The same level of superior genetics and high performance EBV’s is also ideally suited to seedstock producers who are looking to source our bulls as stud sires.
With the help of Breedplan, embryo transfer and an AI program, we are producing lines of very high performing, well-structure, uniformed, quiet cattle while maintaining moderate birth weight, calving ease, high growth to 600 days, with elite carcase weight, EMA and IMF figures.
Bulls which deliver high growth, fertility and superior carcase attributes and have the do-ability with long, deep bodies are constantly being bred to improve client’s end product and perform over the base of the maternal Little Meadows females.
We are currently using sires such as Prime Juggernaut J15, S Chisum 6175, Millah Murrah Kingdom K35 (AI, ET), Vision Unanimous 1418, Adrossan Justice J93 (AI), Little Meadows King Kong K47, Alpine High Octane H037, Alpine High Flyer H190 (AI), Granite Ridge Jurassic J102 (AI, ET), Texas King of Hearts K535 (AI, ET), Booroomooka Bartel K320 (AI), Little Meadows Limestone L3 (AI) and Little Meadows Leonardo L6 (AI).
We believe very smooth muscled, soft skinned cattle are one of the main indicators of high marbling and of top meat quality. We are tailoring our breeding program to produce genetics that will produce high quality beef to suit our higher valued markets, both export and domestic, hence the reason for so much emphasis on carcase traits.
Naturally we want our clients to market their product at the most profitable end of the spectrum and with the constant use of the best carcase bulls available we are confident in moving toward these suitable markets.
Little Meadows Angus cattle are guaranteed free of Brucellosis, TB, Mannosidosis and Johnes disease.
WA has been declared Johnes disease free and all our cattle are clear to go to any herd in Australia.
All bulls sold will have been examined for breeding and structural soundness and will be guaranteed for fertility.
All bulls are guaranteed to be fertile and capable of natural service at the date of sale and for a period of twelve months thereafter. No warranty is given for any bull that becomes infertile or incapable of natural service due to injury or disease. If a bull should prove infertile, the purchaser must notify us in writing accompanied by a veterinary certificate of infertility. We retain the rights to independent veterinarian confirmation or claim.
Please note that our annual on-property bull sale is an Angus Quality Assured Sale and all bulls will be transferred to you.
Little Meadows does not utilise Red Angus carrier sires in their breeding program, therefore all clients are guaranteed ‘Black’ Angus progeny when using Little Meadows bred bulls over red carrier black Angus females.
