Beef By Genetics
2023 Bull Sale Completed
The Scientific Approach
At Storth Oaks we take a scientific approach to stud breeding. By making breeding decisions based on factual, scientific data, we can increase profitability for our clients and improve the end beef product for the consumer. A better end product means higher premiums for the producer.
In a journey that hails right back to the Brittain’s family homestead in Yorkshire, England, Storth Oaks (meaning strong) in Otorohanga was purchased by Tim Brittain in 1980, and it was then that the quest for quality beef began.
Farmed in an entirely commercial manner, the operation has its primary focus set on profitability — fertility, growth and carcass quality.
DNA technology is a critical part of the Storth Oaks breeding program and contributes greatly to our completeness of recording. We use technology to enhance our breeding programme and ensure all our pedigrees are correct. In addition, the use of HD50K across our entire herd allows us to speed up our genetic gain by selecting early, those animals that are going to take us forward more quickly.

We are committed to bettering the Angus beef eating experience for the end consumer.
“As Chairman of AngusPure NZ Ltd, I have been actively involved in the development of the AngusPure domestic beef brand and AngusPure Special Reserve export brand. Consumers across the globe are demanding jucier, more flavoursome and tastier beef, and as a stud breeder, I feel it is our responsibility to ensure commercial farmers are using genetics that will assist them in reaching the relevant processing premiums.”
