The Minnamurra Story

Minnamurra Pastoral Company was established in 1974 by Bruce Reid in the Mudgee district of NSW, running Hereford commercial cattle and the Cortina Poll Hereford Stud. Bruce was converted to the Angus breed in the nineties when he teamed up with Dennis Power, our current General Manager, and since then has developed one of the finest Angus commercial herds in the country, running across 10,000 hectares of prime grazing in the central west of NSW.

In 2011 we became interested in Speckle Park cattle after having seen the success the breed was achieving in Canada. Encouraged by our results in feedback trials with first cross steers, we established the Minnamurra Speckle Park Stud to provide top quality genetics for crossing with our existing Angus herd and for the industry at large. Minnamurra Speckles has now grown into the largest purebred Speckle Park herd in the world.

Our philosophy

Breeding for
Quality and Performance


We believe that the quality of any herd is determined by the quality of their females – females need high fertility and maternal traits to calve with ease and raise a live calf every year. If you have good females, then good males will follow. 


We also believe that we are selling to processors what’s under the skin, so delivering carcase traits and meat eating quality is of paramount importance for the commercial cattle producer.

The exceptional temperament of the cattle provides a terrific platform to allow their cattle to perform to their high genetic capabilities. Well known for their easy doing fleshy nature, the Minnamurra cattle are a pleasure to feed, providing well above average results in regards weight gain in feed and as fed feed conversions. In the chiller the Minnamurra cattle have exceptional carcase attributes in the areas of saleable red meat yield, marbling and weight for age.”

The cattle are always presented as described, and are suitably matched to the MSA programs. It is a credit to the Company for how well the cattle are handled, and delivered.
