Why Braunvieh?


A medium to large frame dual purpose breed, which was developed for meat and dairy production in a 60:40 ratio. It has a good walking ability, strong legs and deep dark hooves.


The Braunvieh is a breed with an above average milk production, good udders and teats that ensure that calves grow up fast with above average weaned weight.


More than a decade ago, Mr Bruce Hunt stopped stud breeding and started with a cross breeding program which concentrated on feedlot production and that was when he started breeding the ideal cross – hardy animals with superior meat and milk characteristics.
