40% more retail product per hectare
from Australian Lowline Angus cattle
Australian Lowlines have superior carcass characteristics
compared with other cattle, producing well over 70% dressed out beef.
with their efficient feed conversion and expect to produce up to
40% more retail product per hectare and 30% more rib-eye than
other cattle. It all adds up to increased profitability.
The (US) chart below gives the statistics in acres rather than
hectares and lbs rather than kilos, but you'll get the idea. NZ
stocking rates per acre are, of course, higher than these
(Australian) ones. Expect to run a minimum of three Lowlines
where you would run two Angus, Herefords or Whitefaces. Or even

MANAGEABLE SIZE/ FAST MATURING
Australian Lowlines, which have 100% Angus genes on a more compact frame,
are designed to be smaller and to mature earlier than beef cattle of other breeds.
HOW'S THIS FOR PERFORMANCE?
Purebred Australian Lowline steer Allambie Apocalypse didn't get
a look-in at the "on hoof"classes at the Quirindi Prime Stock
Expo. Then came the carcass judging. Allambie Apocalypse's 87.567
score on the ABCAS evaluation system was good enough to have won
the light weight section at the Sydney Royal Show. At Quirindi,
he beat all light weights and was 3rd overall when the heavy
weights were included.
