Snow­line prin­ci­pals ready to dis­cuss ben­e­fits of the Speckle Park breed

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - BEEF WEEK -

ES­TAB­LISHED in 2012 in the Kiewa Val­ley of North East Vic­to­ria, Snow­line Speckle Park’s goal is to be at the fore­front of the de­vel­op­ment of the Speckle Park breed in Aus­tralia as a sup­plier of qual­ity stock to com­mer­cial breed­ers and stud op­er­a­tors.

Stud prin­ci­pals Tania Muller and Rick Munt sourced lead­ing Aus­tralian and Cana­dian ge­net­ics to es­tab­lish Snow­line’s foun­da­tion herd, now mak­ing it one of the lead­ing studs in Vic­to­ria.

“Our cat­tle are pas­ture fed and run un­der com­mer­cial con­di­tions,” Ms Muller said.

“We have sold bulls to a va­ri­ety of com­mer­cial clients who were search­ing for a change.

“From the vealer mar­ket to later ma­tur­ing bulls, we have a phe­no­type to suit most com­mer­cial breed­ers.

“Our fe­males of­fer a great ge­netic en­try into a stud pro­gram for new­com­ers to the breed,” she added.

Snow­line Speckle Park has had great suc­cess at re­gional shows and also Roy­als, cul­mi­nat­ing in Supreme Speckle Park ex­hibit in 2014 at Royal Mel­bourne.

Our F1 Speckle Park cat­tle have high­lighted the im­pres­sive growth rates, yield and car­case qual­i­ties achieved by us­ing Speckle Park bulls in com­mer­cial herds.

“In our third con­sec­u­tive year as a Beef Week ex­hibitor we are look­ing for­ward to dis­cussing the ben­e­fits of the breed with a va­ri­ety of pro­duc­ers,” she said.

“We have work­ing age bulls and fe­males avail­able, PTIC fe­males, em­bryos and se­men in top Royal Show win­ning bulls.

“We look for­ward to wel­com­ing you and shar­ing re­fresh­ments,” Ms Muller said.

Snow­line Speckle Park will be open on Day 3 of Beef Week on Fri­day, Jan­uary 29.
