Welcome to Totaranui Stud
It’s no easy life for the Totaranui cow. She must calve as a two-year-old and her docility is paramount, ensuring we can tag and weigh her calf immediately after calving.
She spends the hard winter months behind the ewes, cleaning up the pastures, just as the commercial farmer would expect of her.
She must bounce back every year and get in calf again – if she doesn’t she’s down the road.
The Totaranui bulls inherently have these qualities; they will sire fast-finishing steers and pass on valuable maternal traits to your herd.
Profitability is the bottom line and the Totaranui bloodlines grow fast, have a high yield and marbling, and consequently qualify for premiums that are consistently delivering up to $400 per head.
