Welcome to the Australian Gelbvieh Association
The Gelbvieh breed has much to contribute to the Australian beef industry and astute breeders are now realising the full potential that Gelbvieh genetics can contribute to a profitable beef enterprise. Extensive trials, particularly in the USA have time and time again proven why Gelbvieh cattle have become the European breed of choice by leading cattleman to be the most efficient at producing quality beef.
Gelbvieh cattle are well known for their quiet and inquistive temperament and are unique in the industry with their ability to excel in so many of the major traits. Contributing excellent maternal traits of high fertility, early puberty and good milk production plus the combination of a lower birth weight and explosive, curve bending growth rates that produce heavy, well muscled progeny with optimum finishing ability.
Gelbvieh cross equally as well with the temperate climate breeds as they do with those in the tropics. The added benefits of hybrid vigour ensures that profits are maximised. The development of the Balancer Registry (Gelbvieh x Angus genetics) has made a huge impact on the industry in the USA and Canada and is quickly becoming popular in Australia.
We invite you to take some time and browse through the pages of our website and learn how YOU can move to a more efficient and profitable beef enterprise.
