Our Composite Bulls
As an alternative to our purebred Charolais we have been very dedicated to our Composite bull breeding program over the last 15 years. We feel these bulls have a lot to offer many commercial breeding operations across the country. We have seen firsthand some amazing calves by such bulls across a number of herds who like to capitalize on the hybrid viguor obtained from our composite bulls. The Charolais bring growth, muscle and yield to the table which combines well with the marbling, and finishing ability of the British bred cows.
Our bulls are carefully selected from over 700 calves from our commercial herds at Dubbo and Blayney of predominantly shorthorn and Angus herds. We only keep the very cream of the crop and full brothers of these bulls regularly feature in the various carcass competitions we enter each year.
The Charolais/Angus composites enable clients with Angus breeding herds to market progeny toward feedlots requiring ¾ Angus content. The progeny by these bulls will not only gain hybrid vigour but keep their black or dark grey colour. The “Rosedale Blacks” will produce Black calves when used on Angus cows. They are also flexible to be used in a range of crossbreeding situations depending on the needs of the client.
The Charolais/Shorthorn composites are popular with clients with both British breeds and bos indicus influenced cattle as they still provide great weight gain with that little bit of extra cover. These composites are well received by both feedlotters and backgrounders as they are very much industry focused cattle and perform well in any situation.
