Square Meaters the new dimension in premium beef production

Square Meaters are a moderate framed Australian breed of beef cattle. They are perfectly suited to the highly variable Australian temperate climate. They have an ability to hold condition in hard times and flourish in normal conditions.

Their capacity to finish on grass allows breeders to lay claim to the cattle being a sustainable breed under Australian grazing conditions.

Square Meaters were established as a breed to provide premium beef to the domestic market. Early maturity, heavy muscling and even fat cover are the genetic traits that allow the breed to consistently provide 8 to 9 month weaners of 225 – 275 kgs or 12 to 14 month yearlings of 380 – 420 kgs off grass, making them an ideal fit with the domestic market specifications and pasture fed assurance certification.

This competition is for SMCAA Members to present a great photo of a cow and calf to grace the front page of Outside the Square magazine and this will be visible to all whom read our magazine for 2023 and onwards. click here for details

A BRONZE medal in Sydney for a Square Meaters steer.

PALMERSTON TIMMY - 84.95
2.15 pts behind the Grand Champion, about 22nd out of 82 over all in the Lightweight steer classes.

CONGRATULATIONS to PALMERSTON TIMMY'S owners Howard and Jane Lister and to St Gregory's College for their great preparation of Timmy.

Timmy had some challenges in life starting with contracted tendons at birth to 3 day sickness and foot abscess during his preparation!

Tip: always take a good photograph of your steer, you don't know what's hidden under the cover, you may be pleasantly surprised!

Always an absolute pleasure to work with Howard and Jane. Consistently good breeding of great steers. Poor Timmy, if only he didn’t get three day and foot abscesses… he lost so much condition. He was a fighter!

Yet again a brilliant job done by St Greg’s. We are so grateful for everything you do. Credit also to Silver Gully whose animals have been a tremendous addition to the Palmerston gene pool and regularly produce our best calves. Thanks to all involved.

Congratulations to breeders and exhibitors, who did a great job πŸ‘ πŸ‘ Silver Gully Farm proud to be a part of Timmy's journey, with sire Silver Gully Lazarus and dam Silver Gully Mizira. A fantastic collaboration all round πŸ‘ πŸ˜€ πŸ‘Œ

✨Wattle View Ruby✨

Wattle View Ruby is a 5yo cow, sold PTIC with a 4mo cracking heifer at foot. Please see more pictures of Ruby and her progeny in the comments. πŸ™‚

This was Ruby's first lead with our 9yo daughter 3 years ago, in her show career. Ruby won multiple show awards and has always displayed an exceptional temperament. Her breeding and confirmation are excellent.

Ruby is regretfully for sale, as is the rest of our herd due to our big move at the start of next year and drastically downsizing our farm lifestyle.
