- The Ascot Advantage – Sustainable Beef Genetics -
We are a customer focused Angus & Charolais stud breeding operation which aims to deliver low risk, thick,polled bulls,bred with an MSA targeted approach. Our breeding headquarters are located at North Toolburra Station , Warwick, Qld. We also have a breeding operation at Glen Innes, NSW. We have approx. 550 breeders of which 350 angus breeders & 200 charolais breeders.
We have an annual on property bull sale at North Toolburra in October each year. 2015 will see 100 bulls on offer, 50 angus & 50 mainly polled charolais.
Although we are breeding for the polled gene in the charolais (naturally polled in the Angus) we adopt a holistic breeding approach to both the Angus & charolais herds and don’t just concentrate on single traits. We test & breed extensively for the homozygous polled gene in the charolais & offer mostly all polled bulls now. Long term we feel polled cattle will be a must for all commercial herds so we like to be at the cutting edge of this development.
We rigorously collect data for both breeds & are 4 & 5 star Breed plan conformists for the 2 breeds. (5 star is the highest rating).
Most calves are weighed at birth & all animals are weighed for 200, 400 & 600 day weights & scanned for EMA, & fats & marbling. Scrotal measurements are also taken on all males. All animals have EBV’s.
Each year we run extensive AI & Embryo transfer programs with the highest performance bulls & cows from Australia & around the world to keep us at the leading edge of both breeds development.
In addition to weight, growth & fertility we select for quiet temperament & calving ease. All bulls are vet & semen checked before sale as well as vaccinated for tick fever, 3 day sickness, Pesti & 7 in 1.
