In 1995 we began our Lowline herd with the purchase of a six month old heifer, Ardrossan Chrystal (ARD Q013), & a recipient black baldy cow carrying a Lowline embryo. This embryo proved to be a female, Wanamara Jedda (WAN Q001).
The purchase of an embryo the following year resulted in another female, Wanamara Innamincka (WAN S002). These three cows formed the foundation bloodlines for Wanamara Lowline Stud.
We have since added different bloodlines with the introduction of Kimbolton Becky (KPS U013), Duniera Mimi (DPC P002), Elandra Park Yana (EPS Y157) & Goan Opal Star (GOA T039) among others.
Our female genetics are combined with champion bull bloodlines by natural matings & artificial insemination. We have a diverse genetic pool within our herd & will continue to diversify to improve our cattle, enabling us to supply elite seed stock for Lowline breeders & commercial beef producers both in Australia & overseas.
We aim to produce quiet, fertile, feminine females with good milk & mothering abilities as well as structural soundness. They must have width & depth of body to ensure easy calving.
For the past 2 years we have been using our Lowline females in a cross-breeding program with our Speckle Park bull, Pretender with calves have an average birthweight of around 28 kg & there have been no calving problems. As Lowline & Speckle Park steers are proving once again that they are the ideal beef carcase, we feel the Speckle/Lowline X steer should be perfect for todays clientele.
At the 2012 & 2013 Royal Melbourne Shows, Billbong High School, Culcairn NSW, prepared & paraded 2 of our Speckle/Lowline X steers in the Carcase competition with very good results. They are an ideal 350kg (liveweight)early maturing, high yielding steer that needed very little feed to finish.
