Jade Park Angus – where temperament comes first
JADE Park Angus is one of a handful taking part in Beef Week 2019, with a selection of quality bulls to be offered for inspection and sale during the event.
Located just outside of Greta, the breeding focus at Jade Park is clear; animals must be well structured, with high fertility rates, well-muscled, and most importantly, must be of outstanding temperament.
Run by Andrew and Lisa McLean, and their sons Angus and Sam, Jade Park takes great pride in individually assessing each animal – with any not meeting the criteria culled.
“Our breeding platform is to be aware of growth and carcase requirements for future breeding programs, and phenotypically we want our cattle to display body depth and thickness, strong head and a healthy amount of fat cover with great feet,” Andrew explained.
Jade Park’s feature home bull, CML K6, is an embryo out of a donor cow from Millah Murrah G101.
The stud produces around employs an A1 and embryo breeding system.
“We have a spring calving inseminated mob and a recipient mob, taking embryos from our donors and selected herds,” Andrew said.
“We are forever aiming to produce better females with genetic depth for a more consistent line up of bulls.”
Jade Park is located at 1617 Wangaratta Kilfeera Road, in Hansonville, and will be open January 26.
