Gelbvieh cattle are a German, triple purpose breed.
They were bred for milk and meat - and as a beast of burden.

Gelbvieh is pronounced ‘gel-fee’ - meaning ‘gold cow’.

Queensland stud breeders produce quality Gelbvieh stud stock.
Commercial herds are turning off Gelbvieh and crossbred stock,
which frequently tops the market.

Breeder herds utilising Gelbvieh for crossbreeding with great results
are Angus, Braford, Charbray, Charolais, Devon, Droughtmaster,
Grey Brahman, Hereford, Red Brahman, Santa Gertrudis and Shorthorn.

The potential of crossbreeding with Gelbvieh is limited only
by those not taking the opportunity to use Gelbvieh bulls
to source the breed’s strengths and versatility.
