Our goal is to continually breed for balanced multiple trait selection tools which will produce the optimum performance in the Angus cattle, satisfying the demands of our clients, the majority of whom farm the harsh New Zealand hill country. Our breeding herd is run at 600 metres above sea level on the Kakanui Range - 15 kms from our bull sale venue. They are calved in tussock blocks and guaranteed to be well challenged in snow, wind, drought and social pressure.
Attributes such as longevity, structural correctness and temperament are actively pursued to achieve the goals of economic efficiency. This will ultimately reward those who have invested in Fossil Creek genetics both in New Zealand and around the world.Our main market is selling rising 2 year bulls to commercial breeding herds throughout the country. We also provide females, embryos and other Angus Genetics for purebred clientele within New Zealand. Fossil Creek Angus genetics are proven in many countries through regular exports of embryos from the herd.
