Wetherby Brangus animals perform in a range of climates and produce for a range of markets. The ability comes from structurally sound, moderate framed cattle that do not solely rely on high performance feed to be productive.
Wetherby cattle are evaluated on grass performance to ensure that they will provide the commercial cattleman with functional and marketable cattle.
Wetherby Brangus takes pride in breeding structurally sound animals that have a softness of coat, excellent temperament, high fertility and longevity.
Wetherby Brangus does not single trait select for any particular EBV. We believe that for economic sustainability, a balance between Growth, Carcase and fertility EBV’s should be achieved.
Wetherby Brangus selects for moderate birth weight cattle, with the highest growth possible consistent with our policy of avoiding unsustainably high mature cow weights. In our view excessive mature weight may result in diminished fertility and finishing ability. Sustainability is a function of moderate size, fertility and doing ability.
Wetherby Brangus selects for temperament in the stud and commercial breeding herds, calves and weaners as well as with stud bulls bought in or sold. Low stress stock handling (LSSH) is practiced in the paddock as well as in the yards, when stock can be observed for this trait.
