To be the stud most admired for its quality animals, performance and people.

What does this mean to us:

  • To breed world class animals.
  • To safely provide animals to the market……vital to sustainable economic progress.
  • To earn the admiration of all stakeholders – breeders, farmers, feedlots and our employees – not only for the goals we achieve, but importantly, on how we achieve them.
  • Above all to stay humble while we do this.
