Abstract

A GROWING number of Australian cattlemen, distributed throughout most of the States of the Commonwealth, are experimenting with Santa Gertrudis Cattle— an American breed evolved from an admixture of five-eighths Shorthorn and three eighths Zebu blood. Bulls of this new breed sell freely at four-figure prices and are in demand for "grading-up"; pure-bred females are not sold, but remain a closely-guarded monopoly of the parent studs.
