Star Five females are some of the most sought after cattle in America. They have proven to be heat resistant and adapt extremely well to southern climates. They are known for their excellent confirmation, carcass quality, fertility and mothering abilities. Star Five calves have high weaning and yearling weights, perform extremely well in the feed yards and obtain maximum results at the packing plants.
The SGBI Star Five Program allows breeders to record animals which have at least one purebred Santa Gertrudis parent. Breeders can “grade up” to purebred status by breeding a Star Five to a Santa Gertrudis sire or dam. The resulting offspring is a 75% Star Five. When a 75% Star Five is bred to a register Santa Gertrudis the resulting offspring can be registered as a purebred Santa Gertrudis.
