Polled Hereford Stud
Glenbrae is the top Maternal herd in New Zealand with over 95% of our mixed age cows ranking in the top 10% of the breed for Maternal Value & dominating the NZ Maternal Trait Leader List with more Dams represented than any other stud.
Glenbrae stud consists of approximately 150 cows and support stock. All replacement heifers are mated and calved as 2 year olds.
Any cows or heifers not in calf are culled ensuring that only the most fertile blood lines continue. Calving starts late August for 9 weeks. We place considerable emphasis on conformation, fertility and constitution and breed cattle with high growth & milk with moderate frame & birth weight for optimum profit.
We are constantly on the lookout for new genetics to improve growth, milk, muscling, carcase weight and IMF.
Surplus heifers & steers are finished for Hereford Prime & regularly acheave 100% acceptance rate. Bulls are run in 1 mob for as long as possible to ensure accurate EBV's.
Each year the Bulls are sold through the Glenbrae Bull Sale which is held at Glenbrae, where on average 24 bulls are sold each year.
