About Us

The Studs are located in the heart of the Hunter Valley, 16km from Muswellbrook, and is owned and operated by Paul and Lyn Richards.

The property is gently undulating to hilly, mostly natural pasture, with crops of Oats, Triticale and Millet grown for hay production.

The philosophy is to breed high quality fertile, functional cattle to suit both Stud and Commercial breeders’ through the use of superior genetics.

The extensive use of Artificial Insemination and Embryo Transfer allows the studs to utilise superior genetics from other leading studs to grow and become very successful in both the show ring and at sales.

Steers and commercial heifers are grain fed for 90 -120 days and are sold directly to JBS Scone to their MSA Signature market. Both breeds satisfy the specifications and obtain an MSA grading index above 60 points.

We are a member of the National Johnes Program, being MN2 accredited status, allowing all cattle to be free to move to all states including Western Australia.

All bulls which are sold for breeding purposes are vet checked and semen tested. All are vaccinated for 7 in 1, Vibriosis, 3 day sickness and tested for pesti-virus. All bull are guaranteed fertile for 12 months.
