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.

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 produce heavy, well muscled progenty with optimum finfishing ability.

Gelbvieh cross equally as well with the tropical breeds and temperate breeds equally well.

The development of the alancer breed (Gelbvieh x Angus, red & black) has made a huge impact on the industry in the USA and Canada and is quickl becoming popular in Austaralia.
