Are you thinking about looking to improve or maintain a productive herd?

Thank you for taking the time to think about the sire you require to improve or maintain your cattle operation. After the biggest drought in history and the experiences you and your family have endured and for those who are still experiencing hard times, this is the time to have a think about your herd.
That is, if the dust has settled and you have grass again!

We take the seed stock business seriously as no-one wants to:

* Call out "empty" at pregnancy test time
* Poddy a calf because of a bad udder
* Handle wild cattle
* Experience calving difficulties
* Experience down graded kill sheets
* Replace sires after one season with no back up support

We do everything in our control to minimise the risks and produce a
a viable investment in your herd.


Management Practices Adopted @ Cree


The entire Cree Herd is Fat Scanned, Weighed, Birth recorded.

    1. Tested Negative for Pestivirus,
    2. Life time traceability. All data electronically recorded including vaccination programs.
    3. Sires tested annually by a BULLCHECK Accredited Veterinarian, and we have semen morphology tested since Year 2000. Semen Morphology testing must be conducted from a lab as the modern microscopes cannot be used crush side. It is so important that semen is examined under a high powered microscope to count the percentage normal sperm. This is a huge topic and a lot of information is required to give a full understanding and there is a lot of outdated and incorrect information around morphology, if you require more information, please message/call us and we can supply accurate information.
    4. Temperament has never been tolerated since 1930. Shaun's Grandfather, Late John Richard (Dick) McGuigan founded the original Hereford herd which was continued on by Shaun's parents John & Merriel McGuigan who introduced Santa Gertrudis bulls in 1967. In 2000 the stud was formally registered by Shaun & Jo adopting Breedplan and introducing technology to record animals, traits.

Are you thinking Why BREEDPLAN?

BREEDPLAN is the only "Quantifiable" way to measure genetic progress. With the necessary obligations of acquiring 200, 400 and 600 day weights along with measuring eye muscle area, rib, and rump fat depths, IMF scans, scrotal sizes and recording days to calving EBVs and flight time, BREEDPLAN allows us to keep our finger on the pulse of our herds performance.

The Purpose of BREEDPLAN

The COLLECTION OF THIS DATA IS OBJECTIVE, REAL PERFORMANCE AND CANNOT BE DENIED "IN HERD". WE BELIEVE THIS TO BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY OF MONITORING OUR HERD'S PERFORMANCE AND DIRECTION.

The value of Raw Data

Raw Data is simply an animal's ability to handle its current environment and your visual appraisal will reflect this. It is not possible to see an animal's carcase qualities, nor its ability to produce progeny that can re-breed early. Raw Data does not take into account the difference in an animal's age nor the heritability of each trait. EBVs denote the genetic potential irrespective of environment.

What are the benefits of a Supplementary Sheet?

The only real value in raw data on a supplementary sheet is to use the information to compare animals in a similar contemporary group, which is why you cannot compare animals from different sales, but breedplan can be compared as it allows for the different environments.

"As seed stock producers we see this as our obligation and challenge, to measure, record and provide as much information as possible to enable you the commercial producer to make the most informed decision when purchasing bulls".
