Monterey homestead
about us

The Monterey Murray Grey stud was founded in 1976, when we purchased a line of stud females from the dispersal sale of Gary's father's Arumvale stud, one of the early Murray Grey studs in Western Australia.

Today, more than 350 registered Monterey Murray Grey females have been joined to calve in 2014. In addition, another 300 registered Monterey Angus females have been joined.

A feature of our operation is our annual production sale, held at the Knutsford Selling Complex in Kojonup for 20 years, and now held on property at Karridale. Our inaugural sale was held in 1992, with 34 stud females catalogued, along with 7 bulls for stud and commercial use. Our 21st sale, held on property earlier this year, saw over 80 Monterey bulls catalogued. (54 Murray Grey & 30 Angus) along with 50 stud and commercial females.

Over the past 5 years we have also held a Winter bull sale in May. This year's sale (2013) featured 30 Murray Grey bulls along with 30 Angus.

Notably, for the past 12 years, Monterey has consistently sold more Murray Grey bulls at auction than any other stud globally, attracting stud and commercial buyers from all states of Australia.

The stud, located at Karridale WA, is run with the help of two full time employees , and two part time.
