The interest in Santa cattle came while Neil was a young stock agent at Coonamble in Western New South Wales. He witnessed firsthand how the Santa Cattle out there were the first to get prime and shiny and the last to get poor in a drought.

The Watasanta stud was established in 1985. It was based on a broad genetic base of predominately Poll females from Aberdeen, Boongarry, Calga West, Circle 8 and Yarrawonga-Waco.

The breeding criteria at Watasanta is to produce bulls for commercial and seed stock produces that are genetically stacked with true performance, displaying muscle and constitution. The Watsons know their bulls will give a direct lift and positive influence on their progeny.

A Watasanta  sale bull has to look good as a calf and when weaned. Then the animal must be a good yearling and maintain that performance and do-ability right through until 2 years.

Stud sires used have been only their best including some successful show bulls. These include Watasanta Auctioneer (P), Watasanta Atomic (P) Watasanta Zag (P), Watasanta Dominator (P), Watasanta Big Banana (P) and Watasanta Dozer (P).  More recent times top females and genetics have been sourced from Brookside, Marston, Wavehill and Canowindra studs. Only the best of purchased sires have been introduced including Waco Odessey top price bull $27,500, Canowindra In The Groove equal top price $32,000.

Our aim: to produce what is demanded by the commercial cattle breeder. Bulls that are high weight gainers, tidy sheath and fertile, with good carcase shape and poll genetics. The bulls must be easy to finish with eye appeal not just on sale day but as weaners, yearlings and as two year olds.
