Breeding Objectives

Commercially Focused means more to us than just a slogan. Our commercial herd is the backbone of our farming operation. Wyndarra herd normally sits around 400 breeders, the Stud currently is 55 Red Angus and 10 Shorthorn Breeders which leaves the majority commercial.

Wyndarra has operated as a self-replacing herd for over 60 years. Breeding our own Bulls and Females gives us total control, resulting in a very even line of calves every year.

Heifers are mated at 12 months for 6 weeks only. This guarantees only fertile females enter our herd. Any heifers not pregnant are sent to beef that spring.

Cows have 9 weeks mating with empty females culled.

Stud females run under the same conditions as commercial.

We strive for soft easy doing cattle that can fit any market. Fertility, milk, Temperament, good feet and legs are vital in breeders. Muscle, importantly EMA, with good growth rates improves the bottom line.

Calves are weaned at 5 – 6 months in a full yard/early weaning program. They are protocoled and settled in yards with hay, then moved to the feedlot and given a ration for about 7 days to develop their rumen. They are then turned out on green grass. This sets them up for better feed conversion and more milk production in heifers.

Red Angus gives us the flexibility to turn off of these calves according to seasonal conditions and market trends for each year. We have the option of grain feeding short or long term, finishing on grass or selling stores. Red Angus gives us the flexibility to choose our best option each year.

We are always on the lookout for new genetics. After having an extremely successful Ai Program in 2020 we will continue to Ai and Source semen from around the world. We also purchase Embryo’s as an outcross option.
