Commercially Driven, Future Focused

Leading Speckle Park Genetics

Rose Hill uses a combination of the tried and true Speckle Park genetics that were first brought into Australia, as well as genetics sourced independently from Canada on three separate trips. The diversity of animals viewed in these trips means that Rose Hill has selected genetics specifically suited to the requirements of the Australian Beef Industry and the Australian environment. Viewing several herds meant that Alex and Natalie could view the results of genetics they had also used, and saw first hand the results of different crosses. While Rose Hill has cultivated specific outcross genetics to use in their Australia herd, the belief is always that it is not good enough for an animal to be an outcross alone- quality and performance have to come first. Alex and Natalie plan to return to Canada again when possible, to explore new opportunities.

Rose Hill Sire Selection

Rose Hill leaves no stone uncovered when acquiring leading Stud Sires as this is paramount to breeding leading Speckle Park Bulls and Females. When viewing prospects the focus is on phenotype (what the animal looks like) and structural correctness. If a bull meets these criteria, an evaluation is then performed on scrotal development, muscularity, temperament and available performance data. Breedplan data is another tool that is becoming more relevant to the Speckle Park Breed Association and Speckle Park Breeders as it becomes more accurate and comprehensive over time. Other considerations when Rose Hill selects a sire include the pedigree and DNA test results (myostatin, red coat gene and poll gene status).

Selecting Leading Speckle Park Females

Structure, temperament and pedigree are important for Rose Hill when selecting females for their breeding operation. Ultimately females are preferred that are deep bodied, wide hipped and feminine fronted, with balance and capacity also extremely important. Rose Hill doesn’t compromise on high fertility and balanced functional udders.

In-herd selection is straightforward, as it is supported by extensive data available to assist in the decision making process.

Advantages of Speckle Park Breed

Speckle Park cattle are moderate framed, easy fleshing, and hardy. Beneath the attractive coat is an animal bred to produce a high-quality carcass that is well marbled without excessive exterior fat. Early trials of Speckle Park steers in feedlots are promising, with cattle exhibiting impressive daily gains and reaching exit specifications in good time. Speckle Park cattle perform consistently, producing an outstanding carcass that is highly sought after by butchers at 14-18mths, straight out of the paddock. The ability to produce high quality beef in a short time frame makes Speckle Park the right breed for sustainability and a low carbon footprint.
