The Milwillah Ultrablack program was started 4-5 years ago and is still developing. We believe using the best attributes out of our best Angus females can be beneficial for this evolving breed.
Like our Angus cattle, structure and temperament, with an emphasis on clean sheath and carcass quality, are non-negotiables for our crossbreeding program.
We are progressing towards one stable herd of 50% Brahman-content females and another of 18.5% Brahman-content females.
Our foundation Brahman bulls are from Fenech’s Brahman Rockhampton, with early progeny being particularly pleasing.
The Brangus and Ultrablack cattle are run alongside, and compete with, 200 Angus bulls. We are seeing some real gains being made with eye-muscle area, fat cover and intra-muscular fat results.
All crossbred cattle will be grown out from 6 months of age and marketed out of ‘Mirage Plains’, Cunnamulla, QLD.
