Since then females have been purchased from Norolle at Millmerran, Glenisa Stud, Glen Aplin and Glendale Gelbvieh stud, Serpentine WA.

The Gelbviehs are run under the same guidelines as the Herefords. Focusing also on quiet temperaments, structural soundness, easy doing, neat compact udders, high milk, medium framed, soft females.
