Breeding Principles



Producing phenotypically correct Angus cattle with bred-in predictability and animals who stand up well in the harshest conditions is the mainstay of Riddellvue Angus’ breeding goals and principles.

With our unique sire selection criteria, we aim to provide commercial beef producers with dual purpose, well-bred bulls who will put kilograms into their weaners and breed great female replacements to carry on future breeding in their herds.

Putting our unique stamp on the Angus breed, we focus on breeding stud bulls with high fertility rates ensuring we retain high reproductivity within our all our females. All Riddellvue stud females are required to be joined at 15 months and calve unassisted or they are not retained.

Whilst we are mindful of the numbers and value the importance of data and genetic information, we use Breedplan as guide only and not a rule that defines our breeding program.  We aim to breed cattle who are structurally sound, docile with good temperament, easy-doing, look good and select our sires based on these core principles.
