Little Meadows

The Little Meadows program is a developing entity that revolves around clients, the family, the land and of course the cattle. It is carried out with integrity and with a passion that only livestock producers will understand. It is all worthwhile when the results of the genetic progress can be seen in the newborn calves in the paddock and most importantly in the marketplace of their commercial clients.

Our herd

The Little Meadows Angus herd is run on 600 hectares which combines five properties situated 5km to 10km from Dardanup. The cow herd consists of 320 registered females including 100 replacement stud heifers and 18 ET calves. Bulls are backgrounded on lease properties in the Dardanup district. Little Meadows Angus is run by Tony and Karen Golding and the family.
