About Maine-Anjou Beef Australia Ltd

Maine-Anjou Beef Australia is a group of enthusiastic cattle breeders keen to promote the mainstream benefits of using Maine-Anjou beef cattle in Australian herds. This fast growing membership is a reflection of the benefits of breeding with Maine-Anjou beef cattle, a breed that is well recognised and widely used throughout the USA and Europe, especially in its home of France.

The strengths of this breed are many, however it will be the high quality of the meat, the temperament when managing or feedlotting and the feed efficiency when looking for a cost-effective converter of feed to weight that will attract the eye of the cattle producer willing to look outside the square.
