The role of the Stud or Seedstock producer is an important one. They are vital to maintaining the quality of the animal, the breed traits and breed standard. The commercial sector heavily relies upon the Stud /Seedstock producer to breed structurally correct, sound cattle that produce results in the paddock and on the plate.
The Australian Lowline has much to offer the cattle industry, in terms of
- ease of management
- reduced production costs due to the feed efficiency, reduced calving issues and breeding longevity
- higher stocking rates
- producing steers that will finish well on grass to produce high yielding carcases
The particularly docile temperament of the Lowline makes breeding quality cattle satisfying and enjoyable.
Internationally the demand for Australian Lowline cattle has been strong. With markets now established in various countries, registered breeders have the opportunity to export genetics into existing markets or to develop new markets in other countries. The export demand for Australian Lowline embryos and/or semen is still strong.
The Certified Lowline Beef (CLB) programme and trademarked logo are available to both full and commercial ALCA members interested in beef production. Nothing proves the quality of the animal more than seeing and tasting the beef produced!
Whether you’re into Showing, entering carcase competitions or the satisfaction of producing the genetics behind great beef, the Australian Lowline has much to offer both the novice and the experienced breeder.
