The Maine Anjou breed or ‘Rouge De Pres’ as they are known in the north west of France, was founded in 1839. This was the result of the cross between the French Mancelle and the English Durham breeds.
The Mancelle Durham breed was not officially called Maine Anjou until 1909. The name was derived from the river valleys of ‘Maine’ and ‘Anjou’ in the Mayenne district. The combination of the Mancelle and Durham breeds created a versatile dual purpose animal. The Australian Maine Anjou retains these dual qualities of high milk production and muscle growth proving it to be a valuable beef producer.
Our vision is to be leaders in breeding genetically and structurally superb Maine-Anjou stud cattle. We will strive to produce profitable offspring for our buyers at market and to produce offspring that complement all other breeds of cattle when crossed.
Morham Maine's believe in the preservation and investment of the Maine-Anjou Breed. Our mission is to continue to breed our own brand of Maine-Anjou cattle based on personal research, actual trials, and importation of new bloodlines to Australia. Morham Maine's will preserve semen and embryos from only the best animals produced and 'We Won’t Sell Anything We Wouldn't Buy'!
