About Murray Grey Cattle
Murray Grey cattle were evolved in the upper Murray River
region in southern New South Wales, Australia in the early 1900’s. They are a
cross between an Angus bull and a roan Shorthorn cow.
Murray Grey cattle are medium in size and fairly early
maturing. Their preferred color is silver-gray although there are many
variations in the shading of gray. The calves of the breed are small at birth.
The cows are good mothers and milk well, and the calves have good rates of
Docility seems to be a genuine asset of the
breed both in the herd and in the feedlot. The cattle have relatively small
heads and bone and are naturally polled. Their survival and reproductive rate
has been very satisfactory under a wide range of climatic and management
conditions. Murray Greys have high-yielding carcasses with excellent loin
development and optimum fat cover.
