A practical, predictable and profitable program.
A little about us…
Mark and Sherrie Stokman feel they have a duty to provide the beef sector with cattle that are improving year on year. The improving genetic gains within their herd, combined with the premiums for qualifying Angus cattle, make Stokman cattle more appealing for the commercial farmer.
Our Angus Genetics
The Stokman philosophy revolves around a few basic economic principles: low birth weight with calving ease, combined with good above-average growth and carcass. The quality of our females is the key to a successful breeding program.

Profitability is a key driver for the Stokman breeding programme. There are a lot of tools and information available in the marketplace and the AngusPRO education feed is a great place to start if you’re wanting to learn more about how the right bull selections can improve your farming system.
AngusPRO Index ($PRO)
The AngusPRO index ($PRO) estimates the genetic differences between animals in net profitability per cow joined in a commercial self replacing herd based in New Zealand that targets the production of grass finished steers for the AngusPure programme.
Our cattle are listed on angus.tech, the animal search software developed by Angus Australia. Angus.tech includes a range of software tools and technologies to assist our clients in selecting the right animals for their breeding program.
