KAKAHU GENETICS

KAKAHU

Located south of Geraldine, the property is 1200 hectares ranging from river flats to steeper hills. 250 hectares are irrigated. Kakahu has an Angus and Charolais stud.

The Angus stud was started in 1954 by KH Hargreaves, Gerald’s father, and now we run 550 cows with around 100 of these at Clayton Station. Huge emphasis is placed on breeding animals with high production and great constitution. We breed cattle suitable for the high end meat market, so when breeders are paid for quality they will be at the leading edge.

The Charolais Stud was started in 2006 by Gerald and Tom, and now has 150 cows, selecting especially for good temperament and feet as well as growth and carcass attributes.

We run 3000 composite ewes and fatten all lambs.

We have two cattle sales a year, selling 120 Angus bulls and 30 Charolais bulls in June, and 30 Angus yearlings in October. We sell approximately 100 Kakahu bred commercial heifers for sale throughout the Spring. These heifers are mated to yearling bulls in the top 5% for Calving Ease.
