Tooperang Beef Cattle consists of three farming properties located in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Mt. Observation is nestled in the high country of Tooperang. Commercial black Angus run here along-side our Tooperangus BC Angus Stud herd, producing both stud and commercial rising two-year-old bulls, along with mixed sex weaner and yearling cattle. In addition, a small number of commercial Speckle Park Cattle are maintained to meet demand for these breeds. Now an Autumn only calving operation, the stud herd uses the latest in AI techniques and leading Australian and International donor sires. With a very heavy focus on Te Mania Bloodlines we have incorporated genetic influences from some of Australia’s leading studs including Coolana, Stoney Point and Granite Ridge.
Deep Creek farm, also located at Tooperang, runs a predominantly self-replacing commercial herd of 165 black Angus on flat fertile Lucerne paddocks. This beautiful land has the aptly named ‘Deep Creek’ coursing through the centre of the gum studded property. Bloodlines here include Te Mania, Tooperangus BC, Pinnacle and Ravenswood. These cattle are sold off as weaners and yearlings.
Coorain farm is the third property located in the hills of Port Elliot overlooking the sea.
A mixed herd of red and black Angus with some Murray Grey influence is run for the commercial domestic market, having bulls run with the herd all year-round meaning weaner cattle are often available.
With approximately 400 breeders and 1600 acres of fertile land, our locally bred Angus beef cattle are raised stress free, naturally farmed and grass fed using sustainable land management practices. Grass fed beef is lower in total and saturated fats, higher in omega-3 fatty acids in comparison to grain fed beef and tastes great!
Under the watchful eye of stud manager Ben Dennis (B.Ag.), Tooperang Beef Cattle is earning an enviable reputation on the South Coast.
