Ultrablack, Brangus & Angus
Palgrove has formed a genetic alliance with GENEPLUS, a leading USA supplier of Brangus and Ultrablack genetics, who are are consistently ranked in the top 20 seedstock suppliers in the US.
Both Palgrove and GENEPLUS have a breeding philosophy that is focused on producing phenotypically correct cattle that fit their environment maternally and structurally, while still maintaining the performance and carcass merit the marketplace demands. The alliance will provide a cross check of data information and verification that brings together the very best of Australian and US genetics.
Palgrove has been breeding Angus and Brangus purebred bulls for many years. Since 2009 we have pioneered the development of the Palgrove Ultrablack. These genetics were developed to cater to clients who require black hided bulls that retain a small percentage of Brahman (maximum 20% Brahman infusion only).
The bulls resemble a ‘tropical Angus’ with a sleek coat, pliable hide and the constitution that comes from their ‘hint of Bos Indicus’ and have the ‘meat quality of Angus in a tolerant heat package’.
The versatile Palgrove Ultrablacks work best as a second or third breed in a crossbreeding program over Bos Indicus or British breed commercial females and are equally at home in northern or southern production regions of Australia.
