Green Pastures Square Meater Stud Farm

The Southern Highlands Home of Square Meater Cattle


Square Meaters are a uniquely Australian breed of cattle. Medium-framed and polled, the breed was originally developed by Rick Pisaturo of Mandalong Park near Sydney, New South wales, in the early 1990s from a base of Murray Grey genetics.

Square Meaters are usually silver [=white] or grey [=brown] in colour, with dark hooves and a dark skin that reduces the risk of eye cancer and sunburned udders in Australia's harsh sunlight.

The breed is particularly noted for its good temperament, early maturity and easy-care attributes, making them an increasingly popular choice for small and large farms. 

[At Green Pastures Farm, Collin has been known to use them as lawn mowers! They happily follow him back to their paddock when his job is done!]

Purebred 'Class A' Square Meater bulls must be between 103cm and 113cm at the shoulder at 12 months of age, while females must be under 107cm at the shoulder at that time. Mature females weigh about 450kg

Despite their stature they have excellent muscling and perform well in steer and carcass competitions.

In short - if you'll excuse the pun - they are a delight in the paddock AND on the plate!

As last time, all processing will be closely supervised in line with our view that animals we breed for food need to be treated with respect, and subject to minimal stress.

Certainly, the latest steers being grown for our family, friends and neighbours have been enjoying a relaxed lifestyle, with plenty of sunshine, feed and water aplenty.
