Pinzgauer Cattle

Cross Breeding

Pinzgauers cross superbly with any breed, maintaining their excellent fertility and mothering traits. The breed distinguishes itself by significantly increasing milk production and fertility in the herd. You can expect replacement heifers to have improved milking qualities meaning improved weaning weights of their calves.
Pinzgauers are maternally strong, with characteristics complementary to terminal breeds.

MEAT Qualities
Pinzgauers provide the best of both worlds offering tender juicy flavoursome meat without a lot of fat wastage.
Pinzgauer beef is unique in that it can be well marbled for taste and tenderness yet still have a minimum amount of external fat.
Studies performed at the U.S.D.A Meat Animal Research Centre, Clay Nebraska, show that Pinzgauers produce meat that is the tenderest of any beef breed and routinely exceeds other breeds in juiciness and flavour. Because of the enzyme make up of these animals, the meat retains its tenderness without the use of artificial chemical process.
Additionally, Pinzgauer steers in the feedlot showed above average gains and a minimum of health problems.
This is what beef should be like!

Crossbreeding - An Economical Alternative
Cattlemen today are looking for increased production without adding excessive size and feed costs. Pinzgauer, when crossed with the British breeds, will not only increase milk production and weaning weights, but will also produce a more desirable carcass. Pinzgauer cross well with any breed, whether British, Continental, Asian or Latin.
Low fertility in some breeds is quickly eliminated by injecting Pinzgauer blood. Crossbred Pinzgauer dams are proven superior milkers and wean heavier calves in the fall. Pinzgauer are also used around the globe on dairy cattle to improve meat quality and gain ability without suppressing milk yield.
