Why Choose Mequatling Angus

Why Mequatling Angus


Mequatling Angus is a leader in the South African Beef Industry and was past honoured to be named the Southern African Seed Stock breeder of the Year. This prestigious accolade is sponsored by Landbouweekblad, Breedplan and Pick and Pay.

South African farmers choose to acquire Mequatling Angus cattle because they do all the wonderful things that Angus cattle do, but just do it a whole lot better:

   Fertility above all else

Mequatling has the best reproduction record of all large Angus herds in South Africa. Mequatling Cattle, on average, calve at 23 months with a 371 inter-calving period. This results in a breed topping average reproduction index of 124 for the Mequatling herd!

   Herd Changing Performance

We guarantee that Mequatling cattle will change the performance of your herd. We do not breed average cattle. Mequatling has for many years been able to claim that it has had over 80% of the Angus Breed's trait leading dams for combined maternal performance. These are the mothers of the Mequatling bulls. These bulls have breed leading growth and maternal genetics whilst maintaining respectable calving ease. If one thinks that the next 5 generations of bulls used will account for 97% of the genetics of calves born at that time, it is worth investing in quality and then more quality.

    Super Correct Cattle as part of the Package

Mequatling past showing record is unsurpassed. Mequatling is the only Angus herd to produce 12 Supreme Beef Champions plus 8 runners-up at major shows..

    Thick, Powerful and Medium-framed

Mequatling cattle are thick, powerful and middle of the road. These bulls have "Butt, Body and Balance".

    Carcass Quality

Mequatling bulls are scanned with information on Beef Yield and Marbling. This is the future of the Beef Industry - we are giving it to you now.

    Fertility Tested

All bulls are fertility tested and sheath washed by our vet, Dr Clive Marwick. We have faith in our bulls to do the job for you. All females are confirmed pregnant by Dr Marwick. 

    Reasonable Price

You might be surprised to find out that Mequatling cattle are a lot more affordable than you may expect. Bulls sold from R22,000 upwards and pregnant 6-year old females from R20,000 at the 2012 Sale. People always just remember the record prices. Importantly, Mequatling has never held back a single animal at its sales. We are proud of all the Cattle on offer - we are selling only the top 38% of all bulls bred at this year's Bull Sale.
