Murray Grey cattle FAQ

We are dedicated to improving our processes and genetics to deliver high-performance, superior-quality Murray Grey cattle. As a professional team we both have experience in meat science and meat judging, and understand what makes for strong and reliable animals with excellent carcase traits. Our business is industry focussed and our cattle need to help our clients make more money in the beef industry.

We’re constantly pushing ourselves to remain industry-leaders and love to hear from our clients, so please contact Wallawong Murray Greys cattle stud to provide feedback. Here’s some client testimonials we have received:

What do your clients say about you?

“We purchase Wallawong bulls due to their high fertility, consistent high growth of the progeny and excellent carcase yields.

Wallawong have for many years used performance recording and EBVs, and breed for overall thickness in their sires. This for us has resulted in earlier turn off of our cattle for feedlots and grass fed finishing. Lachlan and Kate have been at the forefront of keeping the Murray Grey breed competitive and relevant in today’s market.”

“We run around 150 purebred Murray Grey cows with our farming enterprise. We were looking for hassle free bulls with proven genetics that produce well muscled calves.

Wallawong stud sires have done this for us . From our first bulls we purchased 9 years ago to the young bull we purchased last year, each bull has produced stand out calves.
We have even sent some of our steers to Sydney Royal show with Wallawong stud and won ribbons, not many studs do this with clients.
The support and knowledge Lachlan and Kate provide is great ,especially when choosing a bull to target your chosen markets.
We would thoroughly recommend Wallawong stud to any beef producer.

Can I book an inspection?

We have an open day each year, before our Murray Grey cattle sale in July, where you are able to inspect our animals in a non-sale environment. You can also contact us to book an inspection of our heifers, cows or bulls for sales throughout the year. We have accommodation on farm and visitors are always welcome.

What is the process with buying semen from Wallawong Murray Greys?

First we can work closely with you to develop a breeding program or recommend an AI sire to suit your specific needs. We offer bull semen for sale from our most successful sires, to strengthen the type and performance of your beef cattle.

All the semen in our bulls is stored at Northern Artificial Breeders, Scone NSW. Once you have selected the bulls and quantity of straws you would like to purchase, we will invoice you for the total purchase price. Once payment is received we notify Northern Artificial Breeders to release the semen and ship it to your nearest or nominated artificial breeding technician or address you supply. Typically this can all happen within a week as NAB send shippers every Monday.

You or your technician receive the semen shipper, take the semen out and store it in your own tank and return the shipper to NAB via the return address on it. We would generally recommend purchasing at least 10 straws of semen to justify the shipping costs.

Please contact us if you have any other questions about shipping semen.

Are your beef cattle MSA grade?

Yes. At Wallawong Murray Greys, we keep up-to-date with the latest beef cattle news and advances in genetics and breeding technology to ensure our bulls for sale, heifers and other Murray Grey beef cattle products are ideally suited to producing cattle for MSA-grade market specifications.
