English Breeds

The Cobungra Station commercial herd today mainly consists of Black Angus and Angus/Hereford cross breeding cows. Many people will recognise Cobungra Station as traditional mountain Hereford breeders but the herd has evolved to a predominantly black base responding to market demand for Black cattle. Angus cattle were introduced in the early 2000’s to supply good quality black cattle to backgrounders and feedlots by using high B3 bulls with good growth and good maternal traits.

All our commercial breeders are naturally mated using only the best Angus bulls sourced from exclusive Angus studs across Australia. The bulls are selected and purchased for the following traits; good milking ability, medium birth weight, high 200 and 400 day weights, large eye muscle, and high B3 index.

All commercial cattle have been bred to thrive in Victoria’s High Country. We have implemented a cull program ensuring that only the most fertile, maternal, and correctly framed cows are left on the property after every joining program. Our weaners are highly regarded in “doing ability” as once they are placed in an environment out of the high country climate they achieve excellent weight gains making them a profitable investment for our long-term clients.
