Our aim is to breed animals of excellent genetics and health; quiet temperament and easy to handle.

To achieve this, we have sourced only the best bloodlines from New Zealand foundation Breeders.

We presently offer 3 different breeds of Miniature Cattle. Wherever possible and depending on available time we can deliver within 2 to 3 hours of us. All calves have been vaccinated with 5 in 1 and orally drenched.

Calves go to their new homes with 1 x 20kg bag of pellets.

All our breeds have their particular traits but without a doubt, these little animals cross all our “T’s”. They are absolutely the cutest, easy maintenance, quiet, appealing, enjoyable animals we have ever encountered. We are very excited to be involved with developing the not so common Red Beltie!


To meet one of these miniature breeds, is to fall instantly in love with them.
