"The Santa experience obviously worked for me & I think that is a good way to describe it. Having a Shorthorn base, we kept our better cows and introduced Santa bulls. The progeny has been marvelous and we now have a pure Santa herd”.
“The most pleasing aspect has been their ability to forage and maintain body weight relative to the seasonal changes. In our country when it’s dry it’s dry, Santas exceeded our expectations, they’re tough, their ability to forage in dry times and they perform well unsupervised”. “We’ve been fortunate enough to have had a run of two or three good seasons, we recently sold a number of steers, weaners and older cows and we’re ecstatic with the result."
“I’d recommend Santa Gertrudis to other producers because they’re the complete package, they look good, they’re placid, easy calvers, great mothers and their conversion of feed to weight is fantastic in good times and they’re ability to adapt when the seasons are against us”.
