Downunder Genetics is a partnership between Paul Redner and Alan Gordon, focused on importing high quality Australian Wagyu genetics for specialist breeding and herd improvement in North America.
Although premium returns from specialized beef markets is a potent part of Wagyu appeal, it is the potential for superior grading progeny in mainstream beef production that encourages the Downunder Team. The target is meat quality improvement that will produce ongoing incremental returns for both commodity cow/calf producers and feedyards. An important related achievement in early work with Wagyu in the South West has been near-elimination of calving difficulties, especially in first calf heifers.
