Mort and Co have had the privilege of custom feeding the Walker families’ Strathmore genetics for the past 12 years.

Their cattle are of exceptional temperament, moderate framed, easy fleshing, and structurally sound enabling them to handle days on feed. They always settle on to feed quickly and are among the healthiest pens in the feedlot.

The Strathmore cattle are versatile, comfortably meeting either the domestic trade or 100 day short fed markets.

The most profitable cattle on feed are those that kill at a young age with a High Average Daily Weight Gain and efficient Dry Feed Conversion.  In these areas the Strathmore cattle have consistently performed in the top 1% of cattle fed at Mort and Co. 

It is always a pleasure feeding cattle of this quality and I highly recommend the Walker’s Strathmore genetics.

Strathmore Steers Perform Well in Mort and Co Feedlots

Sep. 25th 2013

mortnco_092

The opportunity arose this year to gauge how our commercial cattle perform under feedlot conditions due to the lack of useful Summer rainfall to enable us  to finish steers on grass.

To date 758 Strathmore steers have been finished in Mort and Co.’s Grassdale and Pinegrove feedlots with the performance of the cattle being very pleasing.

The overall Average Daily Gain of the cattle was 2.13kg/day with the Dry Feed Conversion being 5.21kg/ 1kg of gain.

As a feed lotting business it is extremely satisfying to have the opportunity to feed Strathmore genetics in our feed yards as we have the confidence they will consistently perform above average every time we feed. Having good conformation, softness and sound structure, they comply to various markets both domestic and export and it is the ability to meet grid compliance within a few cents of the top grid price that sets these apart from the thousands of cattle we feed. Their exceptional temperament allows safe and enjoyable handling, which improves their ability to start on feed, gain weight and convert feed into beef. It is rewarding to be associated with Strathmore Santa’s and I can thoroughly recommend their genetics to help improve and value add your cattle business.
