BLUE DOG SIMMENTALS HISTORY
Maternal, Fertile, Tender, Palatable, Temperament, Longevity, Serving Capacity, and Structural Correctness
Blue Dog Simmentals was established out of a need in 2005 when we weren’t able to find the type of bulls we required to make our breeding and fattening enterprise a viable business. We spent twelve years going backwards; with calving problems, temperament problem cows, heifers not going in calf, and failing to produce a weaner. So began the costly search for a sire with an expert in tow to help us. We advertised in over three states and offered a cash incentive for the right kind of sire. This led to us to buy the right type of females too.
Knowing that it is all female orientated, we decided to breed our own females. We also decided to breed our own bulls as it was nearly impossible to find the right type of bull. After looking at many, we came home with the right bull. This led to the exciting start of Blue Dog Simmentals. To this day, many years later, the excitement we have in being able to produce and sell the right product to other like-minded commercial breeders is still there.
In the nine short years since establishing Blue Dog Simmentals, we have achieved many milestones, winning champion overall pen of store steers with a pen of simbrah steers, equal top priced bull at Rocky All Breeds sale – a first for Simmentals, winning Super bull at the Taroom show and Senior bull at Farmfest, Toowoomba.
