The History of Stoney Point Performance Angus.
Founded in 1998 the Stoney Point Performance Angus Stud has established a reputation as being South Australia’s most progressive stud through the use of superior genetics – many sourced from around the world. Combined with this has been a relentless pursuit of the perfect structure that meets all requirements of superior cattle.
In 2014 Stoney Point began a joint venture with Coorong Designer Angus owned by Perry Gunner. The result of merger the two herds resulted in the “best of the best “with links to the supply chain.
Stoney Point has bred many top bulls over the years that have been extensively used in other Angus studs. One highly sought after bull was Stoney Point Fever Pitch F93 which was no.2 Angus bull for 600 day growth (Nov2014) but we are also producing magnificent females . Top donor cows of the early days were Yankee Queen X65 , Blackbird Lady X60 and Dream F302 . Their progeny now feature throughout the herd
The breeding philosophy remains unchanged – to breed moderate cattle with natural muscle and fleshing that will finish at any stage in any seasonal conditions. Structural integrity is paramount as well as maternal efficiency which is a key feature of the Angus breed.
A renewed embryo and semen program commenced in 2015 as well as the continuing search for the best genetics available globally.
