The herd comprises principally Traditional Simmental types. With some Red Simmental also being produced. A new venture for Lucrana is the establishment of a Black Simmental herd in 2016, with the purchase of a line of foundation females from the St Pauls herd. Lucrana Black Simmental Yearling Bulls will be offered for sale in 2017.
The female breeding herd is run under strictly commercial conditions in hill country in the harsh Traprock region of Southern Queensland. This geographical region is characterised by rough hilly terrain and shallow infertile soils. The climate of the area typically features hot summers and winter minimums below freezing. Selection pressure for many years under these conditions has resulted in a very functional female herd with outstanding constitution and fertility.
