longview02A family owned and operated enterprise based in central Mid-Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand.

The flat terrain of the farm sits at 235m elevation.

Cattle are wintered on green feed, pasture silage and cereal straw. The first cattle purchased in 1989 were Angus, Hereford and Angus-Hereford cross breed (36 animals in total).

Embryo transplant programmes were run for the first three summers when Salers were first introduced into New Zealand. Embryos were primarily sourced from Canada. Salers bulls cover the commercial mixed breed cows. To diversify existing blood-lines, artificial insemination using imported semen is on going.

Currently the Salers herd comprises of 70 mixed age breeding cows all going to the bull in December 2002. All pure stock are recorded through ABRI Breedplan, Australia.

Visitors are always welcome.
