Beef Quality
Traditional butchers prefer Murray Grey beef for its quality and tenderness.  
In 2008 a Murray Grey scored a perfect 10 on the genetic test for marbling and a near perfect 9 on the genetic test for tenderness at the Midland Bull Test. No bull of any breed has ever performed so well before.


Murray Grey Cattle are unsurpassed by any other beef breed for carrying the most genes for marbling and tenderness.  Progressive Murray Grey breeders are testing their cattle and proving time and time again that Murray Grey cattle are the best source for the highest quality eating beef in America.  They are one of the two breeds most desired in Japan and Korea.

History
Murray Grey Cattle were developed in Australia in the early 1900’s.  The first large scale herds were established in the 1940’s and shortly thereafter the first Murray Grey association was formed to register these cattle.  Murray Grey’s are now registered and sold in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, South America, and the United States.
