With the establishment of a local Senepol Stud in Central West NSW, producers now have another option in the market place. Southern Star Rural is a Senepol stud based in Canowindra NSW, breeding Senepol, Angus and Charolais composite bulls.
Senepol has produced a tough, adaptable breed of cattle with the ability to thrive under harsh conditions, maintaining fertility and feed efficiency as well as drought and heat resistance, whilst producing an excellent eating quality carcase.
The development of the breed placed high natural selection pressure on structural soundness, hardiness and fertility.
Senepol are best described as being of medium frame – extremes of muscle and bone having been avoided in striking a workable balance of feed efficiency to growth, fertility and calving ease. Senepol offers cross breeders excellent hybrid vigour from a tropically adapted Taurine breed, with a genetic package which has not been subjected to unbalanced single trait selection.
Consider using a Senepol sire this breeding season to ensure maximum hybrid vigour. Call 0439 029 204 for more information.
