Leachman Cattle of Colorado

One of our key partners and friends in the business is the Leachman family whom we have been working closely with for 30 years.

Our two programs have been pursuing very similar selection goals and with the recent increased emphasis on beef quality in New Zealand and with the increasingly global marketplace, our selection goals are essentially the same today. As such, it was an easy decision to combine our genetic predictions into a single analysis. It is no surprise that the animal rankings stayed very much the same as what had been predicted in both separate analyses. While Rissington and Leachman have somewhat distinct environments, the birth weights, weight per day of age through 400 day, and mature cow weights are very similar as are ultrasound comparisons. This exciting development allows our cattle to be truly compared on a global scale. Annually we host a group of customers on a trip to the US to the Leachman Spring Bull Sale in March. This enables us to see first-hand the latest genetics and developments and keep abreast of market developments. Leachman Cattle of Colorado is based in Fort Collins, Colorado and has co-operator breeders throughout the US, selling over 2,000 bulls annually.

Paringa Livestock

Tom & Olivia Lawson run Paringa Livestock at Yea in Victoria, Australia, breeding Angus, Charolais & Stabilizer bulls.

They are also part of Leachman global analysis which has allowed us to share genetics across the Tasman for mutual benefit. Lawsons have a proud history in cattle breeding not too dissimilar to our own so it’s no coincidence that we have been working closely with them for over 10 years now.

Animal Breeding Services

ABS are specialists in reproductive technologies.

We have worked together since the 90’s refining synchronized AI in beef cows & heifers with great success. Since 2010 we have also been heavily involved in developing our customised bull breeding with them, utilising TVR (trans-vaginal recovery), IVP (in vitro production), and sexed semen technologies to rapidly accelerate our genetic gain. ABS have a very experienced group of staff that are world class at what they do, which is why we have been working closely together for over 20 years.
