Again, due to drought conditions the decision was made to feed our steers at Mort and Co Feedlots.

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.
