The key to the Alpine Angus breeding program is the continued infusion of diverse and current genetics through AI and ET programmes backed up by quality herd sires, structurally sound with good temperament, leading EBVs and performance traits which will build on and complement the Alpine Angus female herd. AI sires are selected to complement both the Alpine female herd and our own herd sires.
