Hazeldean is using sires from the world's top Senepols and crossing them over Hazeldean Angus females to produce Senegus catttle. The cross produces exceptional cattle possessing the heat and parasite tolerance of the Senepol combined with the superior fertility, growth and carcase attributes of Hazeldean Angus.

"Hazeldean Senegus combine the beef cattle breeding expertise of Hazeldean with exceptional qualities of Hazeldean Angus and Senepol breeds.

More Fertile Females –More Calves on the Ground

Boost your herds’ fertility – Hazeldean Senegus sired females are more fertile and will lift calving percentages. They are also very docile, easy calving and good mothers. Hazeldean Angus are famous for their ‘doing ability’ and Hazeldean

Senegus carry these genes being very hardy in tough times.

 


Flatter Backs from Fatter Blacks!

Senegus are Bos Taurus, and will give you a “flatback” that is far more acceptable in the saleyards and to the trade. Coupled with the well known doing ability and carcase attributes of Hazeldean Angus, Hazeldean Senegus produce high grade beef suitable to all markets.

 


Bos Taurus in a Bos Indicus Skin

Senegus are slick coated and research has proven they have similar parasite
tolerance and heat resistance to other tropical breeds. There is no doubt that at the sale yards, cattle with more Angus content demand a premium over those with more Brahman content.

 

 

Why Senegus & not Senepol?

The secret lies in the slick skin. Composite animals inheriting the slick skin will also inherit 100% of the heat tolerance and parasite resistance of the pure Senepol. This has been proven through University of Florida research. The Angus brings to the table higher fertility and well known buyer preference for black skinned cattle.

Northern beef producers are looking for higher fertility and improved carcase quality in their cattle and to breed animals with less Bos Indicus attributes and more Bos Taurus while maintaining environmental suitability.

 

Hazeldean Senegus are quiet, fertile, have strong maternal traits, and are now in herds right up into the Gulf. They have increased the fertility in many herds with higher conception rates and weaning percentages. Carcase data from Senegus steers is outstanding.
