Simon and Louise McRae
Our focus is on quality and temperament rather than numbers.
Located north of the Waitaki River with a average rain fall of 450- 750mm .Pastures are all old english grasses, no new pasture species or kale etc.The aim is to challenge all stock to identify any animals that do not perform. We have the view that the bulls need to grow up eating this kind of pasture as most will end up on similar country.
