The Mawarra female herd consists of approximately 350 breeders plus replacement heifers. Since its inception and until 2002, the herd was based at Gelantipy in the mountains of East Gippsland, close to the famous Snowy River, an area well known for its Hereford cattle. In 2002 we moved to Longford in Central Gippsland, on the banks of the Latrobe River. The country is different but the emphasis we place on the female pedigree has remained the same and we strive to continue improving them with each generation. We are proud of the reputation the Mawarra females have earned: easy doing, heavy milking, sound, fertile and having the ability to breed with consistency. We have a number of outstanding female lines, most notably the Minerva and Miss Titania families.
While using an extensive range of Sires sourced from all over the world several sires have, over the years, played an important role in giving us the female lines we have today; S Britisher 39D, Franz Josef Lieutenant 2, Hi Voltage 80S SIC, Dunrobin Super Star 2A SIC, Charvel Lawful, Mawarra Kahlua, Mawarra Nostalgia, Cootharaba Magnum, Talbalba Valiant & Mawarra Vice Admiral.
