Genetics

We conduct large Artificial Insemination and Embryo programs. All genetics selected are from superior bloodlines and data gathered over many years is used to obtain consistent and elite results.

To obtain the best results from Wagyu we endeavour to produce the following:

  • High marble score
  • Large frame
  • Early maturing
  • The best feed conversion ratio
  • Quiet temperament
  • Great mothering ability
  • Great milking ability

For 3 years, Sunland Cattle Co has had Wagyu Fullblood steers fed at Tullimba Feedlot on feed trials to obtain results of the feed conversion rates.

Substantial savings in feed costs are expected by selecting seed stock that produce the best feed conversion rates, particularly due to the length of time Wagyu are fed in feedlots.
