Good temperament and working towards the genetics with higher fat covers, this helps with the animals holding their condition through harder times, droughts and cold wet winters.Calving ease is a priority and now working towards a shorter gestation to help with this .
Oripak Simmentals started about 20 years ago with two pedigree cows and one pedigree bull from Hampton Downs Stud. We have bought other cows and bulls from a few other studs.
