There is nothing better than seeing what other people’s experiences have been. We requested members (and non members) to provide their comments about their experience with Piedmontese cattle.

This is a genuine, but wide an varied mix that provides a “grass roots” view of what Piedmontese cattle producers, both stud and commercial, think.

"We have been using Piedmontese full blood bulls for the last 3 years over our cow herd which consists of crossbred cows ranging from Santa x Hereford/Angus cross bos indicus x.

Since using Piedmontese bulls we have had the best results ever with no calving problems.  The calves explode once they hit the 4-6 week mark and continue to grow at amazing rates with excellent body conformation.  My neighbors are most intrigued with my results.  We have made more money using our Piedmontese bulls than anything else we have used.  All the store cattle sold have gone to fatteners who are amazed at the result they get and the weight gains achieved.

Interestingly the heifer calves have been equal to the steers in performance and we have been paid accordingly in the market.  With heifer calves making the same as steers which helps my bottom line enormously.

The temperament and fertility of the breed is one of their better attributes.

I would back a Piedmontese bull against any other breed available.

"I have had success in the show ring.  All full bloods sold for breeding.  Crossbreds always top sales"

"I have achieved 2nd place in the Woolworth's bone out class at the Brisbane Royal using Piedmontese Brahman x.  This could be easily won every time but fat cover will beat you.  Anti-Heart attack meat - Fine grain, lean tender beef should command a premium niche market - no knives needed - lean - no fat - no worries - eat all you like"
