​Gentle
​Moderate
​Naturally polled
​Often times beef cattle are difficult to manage because of their disposition.  Murray Greys are well known for being gentle.  Boulder's owner says that he has the disposition of a labrador.
​Not a mini by any means, these cows are typically 1000 - 1500 lbs and bulls 1800 - 2500 lbs. 
​Developed in Austrailia in 1905 - 1918 by breeding a roan Shorthorn cow with black Aberdeen Angus bulls.  The grey calves from that original cow were favored in the predominately Angus area.
Colors, ​colors, colors...
​Purebred Murray Grey cattle can range from light silver (Cleo) to black in color.  White patches above the belly disqualify purebred animals from registration.  The skin is dark (see the nose)-- which helps prevent eye and nose cancers. Cocoa here is considered Dark Grey, she also has birth marks that give her coat a dappled look.
​​​Registered Percentage Murray Grey cattle can be any color.  One parent must be registered to qualify for registration. A 7/8 Murray Grey can qualify for purebred registration if they qualify with all the color and skin requirements. Dark Chocolate is 50% Murray Grey and is a Dark Grey-- her calves will qualify for 75% registration.
