The Yass-bred Angus bull, Alloura Get Cracking G10 is now the highest ranked marbling Herd Book-registered bull in Australia on the Angus Group Breedplan.
Get Cracking was selected for the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program (ASBP) in 2013. In early 2017, with data from progeny in multiple ASPB participator cow herds across Australia, G10 rose to the top of the breed for carcase quality, with great indexes and highly accurate EBVs.
Alloura Get Cracking G10 has been shown to be a highly versatile bull. As well as his outstanding marbling ability, he is also a trait leader for Eye Muscle Area (EMA), calving ease and fertility (days to calving) and has $ indexes in the top 1% of the Angus Breed. Alloura Get Cracking G10 is also a very structurally correct bull with structural EBVs in the top 1% for front feet.

“Alloura Get Cracking G10 is an exceptional sire, with potential to dramatically improve the marbling ability and carcase quality of Angus cattle in Australia,” stud principal Mark Wales said.
“With an IMF EBV of 5.3, he is unique in the breed for displaying unrivalled marbling capacity, yet still retaining muscularity, a deep bodied phenotype, structural correctness and a moderate frame size.
“With a bull like G10 Angus Breeders can now give Wagyu beef a run for their money.”
Alloura Angus has been advised that another of its bulls has been selected by Angus Australia for the latest round of the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program - Alloura Lock Stock & Barrel L94.
Alloura Angus Stud, Goodhope Road, Yass will be selling 45 two-year old bulls at its annual on-property Spring Open Days and Bull Sale on September 15 and 16.
