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.

Square Meaters are a calm natured breed which makes for ease of handling. The moderate frame and lower maintenance requirements maximises carry capacity on the available land. The early maturity trait of the breed, provides for earlier turn-off of finished animals, optimising the breeder’s annual returns.
