black angus beef cattle
LarnOO's black Angus beef cattle thrive on the lush the pristine environment in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range.
The land holding runs a 1,200 head Spring Drop breeding herd plus follower cattle. All livestock is pasture fed and graze on the regularly fertilised and over sown pastures of rich mix of rye, phalaris, clover and nutrient dense natural grasses that thrive in the district.
The soils found on the property include the fertile Goulburn River flat soil and that of the lower hill country in what is mostly a reliable high 700 mm rainfall. The volatility of seasons is underpinned by the abundant Goulburn River water rights available for LarnOO operations.
Significant high reliability water rights, an abundance of catchment dams, irrigation infrastructure and a reliable water reticulation system throughout the property ensures the pasture remains plentiful year round. LarnOO's breeding and fattening operation is on a scale rarely found so close to the city of Melbourne.
