Mandalong Specials Bulls are considered THE SUPER TERMINAL SIRES. First cross progeny of any two breeds, especially Continental Sire on a British or Bos Indicus Dam, gives greats results with as much as 20% production increase and this has also been proven using Mandalong Specials Sires.

You may use a Sire of a different breed as a Terminal Sire, but where do you go then? You can only go down. The answer a Mandalong Specials Sire.

The fact that Mandalong Specials have evolved with the criss/crossing of 5 breeds, namely: Charolias, Chianina, British White, Shorthorn and Brahman will allow you to stabilize any crosses – maintaining the desired muscling and fat cover for a premium carcase and without inbreeding.

135 Mandalong Specials steers (“St. Aubyns”, Walcha, NSW), 100 days at the feedlot had an average gain over 2kg per day, despite being the leftovers after the top 450 steers were sold. They averaged 384.6kg carcase weight, 61% cold carcase yield, which was 2% above other steers from the same feedlot at the time and made $1,388.70 average (not incl. GST). The 300 Mandalong Specials heifers at “St. Aubuyns” achieved a 98% PTIC rate for the 2007 joining.
