Welcome! We have a growing, dynamic group of Murray Grey breeders and enthusiasts who are joined together in promotion of this wonderful breed of cattle.
Our aim is to educate the general public about the numerous positive qualities of Murray Grey cattle, and to provide our membership with an easy, low cost system of registration for their cattle. Our annual membership fees are very low, and we have a prompt cattle registration system for our members.
Murray Greys are calm to work with and are known as the “gentle builders of beef”. Their good nature is especially important to part-time producers; ease of handling saves time, money, and temper!
Murray Grey calves are small and quick to their feet. They grow quickly and are adaptable to all climates. Many commercial producers buy a Murray bull to use on first calf heifers and are pleased enough with the results to use the bull on all their herd.
Murray Greys are one of the two preferred breeds for importation to Japan, due to their easy fleshing and high quality meat production.
February of 2018 would bring the birth of Bennett Steel, a bullcalf orphaned and sold to the Foster family. Porter led "Steel" to his foster mother 2 times a day and worked with Steel all summer long to mold him into a show bull to be shown in 4H. We anxiously look forward to following young Porter and his success with Murray Greys.
Haylee, a new bride from Atkins, AR is taking her future seriously by realizing the advantages of using a purebred Murray Grey bull to cross over her Charolais heifers/cows. We're anxious to watch how this "cross" does for her and hear her thoughts. If you would like to know more about this cross, drop Haylee a line. Her first Murray Grey x Charolais calves will arrive spring 2019!
Using foundation sire LeBlanc Paddy (Eagles Run Bluebell x HD Total Eclipse) for 3 years and breeding up from Gelbveigh females, Ralph is building a fine herd of percentage Murray Greys which he will one day pass off to his grandson Matthew Tuey.
Together they also operate a lucrative hay business.
