Galawater we are firm believers that first and foremost our
Pedigree Herd must be made up of sound, commercial cows that
are capable of giving birth unaided, be able to retain their
condition on grazed grass for as much of the year as possible
and wean a calf that is a large percentage of their own bodyweight
every year. As a result we aim to breed long, deep bodied,
fleshy cattle, with balanced EBV’s. We have steered
away from trying to breed cattle that are excessively tall,
lean or extremely muscular and tight bellied. We have also
concentrated on breeding for fairly high Milk EBV’s
and our herd average for this trait is worth note.
At the moment we have many foundation families
but the best performers are beginning to make themselves apparent.

our own and embryo donors - click on links to view.
