Our stud philosophy
Breed balanced, fertile, robust, easy doing, structurally sound and commercially relevant Simmental cattle that are proven for longevity and performance.
Uphold the principles of integrity, honesty and transparency in our actions, and in our liaison with clients and other breeders.
Be pleased but not complacent, focused but with vision, educated but still willing to learn.
Wormbete Simmentals is part of the Hopkins family mixed farming enterprise on the property “Allawah” situated 7kms from the rural village of Illabo, and approximately 70kms north east of Wagga Wagga in the Riverina region of New South Wales.
At Wormbete, we pride ourselves on breeding functional, adaptable, structurally sound, fertile, polled Simmental cattle that perform under a range of management demands and seasonal conditions.
Our focus is on the integrity of our stud, the performance of our bulls and females and their contribution to the efficiency and profitability of our clients enterprises and the evolving demands of the beef industry.
Wormbete Simmentals was established in 1972, with its founder Mr Henry Hopkins one of the first to introduce Simmental genetics to Australia. Breeding Simmental cattle for over 40 years has resulted in a herd that today is formidable in its quality, consistency, genetic strength and performance. The depth of knowledge of our female genetics is combined with a commitment to performance recording, structural assessment, herd health and embrace of new technologies and genetics.
