A focus on quality pastures

Strength through working with other farmers

The Brownrigg Agriculture livestock business is built on the natural pasture production strengths of the group’s farming operations in Hawke’s Bay, run as 6 farm units spanning multiple properties.

All livestock produced for Brownrigg Agriculture programmes is farmed to exacting standards in terms of animal husbandry and traceability.

Throughout our livestock business we have a strong focus on the marketplace, and this has resulted in durable integrated market partnerships in each enterprise.

Brownrigg Agriculture Livestock spans a range of enterprises, foremost of which are:


Lamb Finishing

Some 140,000 lambs and other sheep are supplied annually to processors who export predominantly chilled product to world markets.



4,000 cattle, are supplied to meat processing companies and specialist finishers annually. The cattle policies include Friesian bull finishing and a commercial Angus herd.



The Wagyu Breeders Ltd fullblood stud herd is the nucleus of our Wagyu business, from here we supply elite genetics to both grass fed and grain finished beef supply chains.
