In 2003 The Glen commenced breeding registered Angus cattle with the purchase of 120 APR females from Mitta Valley Angus in North East Victoria, 120 HBR and APR females from Landfall Angus in Tasmania, and 20 females from Tibooburra Angus in the Yarra Valley, Southern Victoria. Natural service and AI sires have been selected from leading Angus seedstock breeding programs in NSW, Vic, WA & Tasmania.
The Glen’s breeding program has a strong focus on fertility, structural soundness, growth and carcase merit. Only those heifers which fall pregnant during compressed mating periods and pass scrutiny for growth, structure and temperament are retained for breeding. The Glen herd and annual calf drop has been performance recorded on Angus Breedplan since 2003.
