Santa Gertrudis bulls, when mated
with cows of other breeds, have consistently sired calves that weigh from 22
kg to 28 kg more at weaning time.
The butcher, the cattle buyer and the producer have all recognised
that consumer demand is for lean beef. Beef of this type is produced
by Santa Gertrudis and Santa Gertrudis crossbreeds. With the new grading
system in South Africa, where two-toothed cattle are now going to be
classified as Super Grade Beef, the purebred and crossbred Santa will have
an advantage as one of the breeds that shed their milk teeth late.
For crossbreeding purposes, Santa Gertrudis bulls mated with any type
of cow are hard to beat. This breed has the ability to add
kilograms to calves at weaning time. Reports from commercial cattle
producers in Australia, the United States, South Africa and other
countries verify that over a period of years, Santa Gertrudis bulls can
produce more meet for less money.
Moreover, your crossbred calves will outweigh the others, giving you a
greater return at sales time.
