Crossbreeding with Murray Grey cattle
Crossbreeding has long been on the horizons of many a cattle producer due to the advantages of heterosis or hybrid vigour, whereby the progeny of the crossbred parents offer superiority in performance. Murray Greys are used Australia-wide in crossbreeding programs over European, Bos Indicus and other British breeds of cattle.
Murray Grey cattle worldwide are increasingly chosen to be used in crossbreeding programs because they:
- Reduce calving problems
- Improve temperament
- Assist fertility
- Widen the range of marketing options
- Reduce turn off age for Northern producers
- Increase yield
- Improve meat quality
- Improve milking ability
By choosing to use a Murray Grey bull Australia you will be investing in the future of your beef production system.
The Murray Grey Society also provide listings of bull semen Australia for sale.
