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.
Our mission at Steeple View Ranch is to breed outstanding Murray Grey Cattle being the seed stock producer of choice in commercial beef cattle grass finished herds. We use an extensive Embryo and Artificial Insemination program utilizing the top bulls in the breed from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States.

We combine DNA Igenity Profile data for tenderness, Breedplan performance data along with our actual performance measurements. The Murray Grey Group Breedplan incorporates information from Murray Grey Breeders in Australia, United States, Canada, United Kingdom and New Zealand. Steeple View Ranch Murray Greys are analyzed together with Murray Greys worldwide under the same performance metrics.
