An extra $100 per steer? Crossbreeding for more profit with tropically adapted Bos taurus cattle

Webinar location: At your computer in the comfort of your home or office or on the go, using your mobile device!
The Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry and Fisheries (DPIF) is researching whether crossbreeding with Senepol bulls is a viable way for north Australian cattle producers with Brahman herds to produce animals that will:
  • perform well under harsh northern conditions
  • be suited to the South East Asian live export market and the Australian domestic market.
Tim Schatz, Principal Pastoral Production Officer with DPIF, will discuss the results of the research program to date and will compare the:
  • pre and post weaning growth of Brahmans and F1 Senepol x Brahmans in the Top End of the NT
  • performance of the Brahman and F1 Senepol x Brahman steers in feedlots in Queensland and Indonesia
  • results of meat quality testing from Brahman and F1 Senepol x Brahman steers.
These results are showing that crossbreeding with tropically adapted Bos taurusproduces animals with more tender meat and offers significant benefits for both north Australian beef producers and Indonesian feedlotters.
