Greg Steer's Farm, Glengarry, Australia

Balancer cow with 221 day old bull calf at foot.

Balancer cattle (50% Gelbvieh / 50% Red Angus) are raised on the property with the calves sold at ten months of age into the domestic vealer
market or as stores to fatten.

The Balancer combination was chosen because the Gelbvieh adds milking ability and muscle and is a great match with the softness and fat cover of the Red Angus. Each year some female cattle are retained as part of a herd improvement program and to replace any remnant Black Angus/Friesian bloodlines.

Further details of Gelbvieh cross cattle can be found on this article on the Australian Gelbvieh Association web site.
The Red Angus Society of Australia also has a section on crossbreeding.
