The EBBECK FAMILY is most proud of the scores of satisfied commercial breeders that are breeding hundreds of quality stock throughout Australia and Overseas using EBBX bred and selected blood lines.

Ebbx cattle "breed on" in all facets of the cattle industry, not just the Pure Bred arena. That is not to say they are not equally as proud of those Show Ring results, but the real world of the commercial breeder is whats its all about.

EBBX produce-Big Strong - High Performance - Easy Care - Maternal, Poll Herefords with sensible birth weights.

These objectives are what drives the program, coupled with these ideals is a very positive outlook on and use of performance data.  EBV'S are not the "B-all" & "End all" at EBBX but they play a percentage part in genetic selection. At EBBX they are very mindful that  without individual human input into breeding livestock, mediocrity and sameness can easily become the "norm", and that EBBX has never been!


EBBX has shown and bred a record 16 Grand Champions in the Poll Hereford breed at Australia's premier beef show, the Sydney Royal Easter Show as well as numerous All Breed "Champion Of Champions" and other Grand Champions throughout Australia, USA and Canada including National Champions in the USA ,Canada and bred the Sire of National Champions in England, Ireland, Argentina and New Zealand. EBBX has had no less than 6 Australian Sire of The Year awards in the Poll Hereford breed, a feat that may never be repeated and has bred the only Grand Champion Poll Hereford bull at Sydney Royal that has bred a son that has been awarded the same Grand Championship at Sydney, that being the beef icon called "Hustler" and his son "Flex."

Sales of EBBX cattle have been a feature of the Australian Beef Sale Calendar for over 3 decades with bulls topping at $114,000.00, cows to $48,000.00 and embryos to a World Record of $25, 000.00 with their annual sale topping the National all breeds average for the year, on numerous occasions.


Greg Ebbeck
who was born, raised and schooled at Young in the South West of New South Wales was brought up with beef cattle in his blood. Apart from a short stint in the 'big smoke' of Sydney in his late teens, Greg's life has been one of breeding, rearing and showing cattle from day one with a passion for pedigrees and pure bred blood lines.

Married to Kerrie with six children, all of whom have been involved in the Beef Business, Greg has been breeding cattle for over 45 years, running the family owned EBBECK FAMILY FARMS and the world renowned "EBBX" Poll Hereford Stud.  In conjunction with the Late Don Anderson, he imported live, some of the first New Generation Poll Herefords back to Australia in the early 1980's from North America. He has since imported scores of live cattle, as well as having selected and imported thousands of embryos and straws of semen from all parts of the world. Greg has been at the cutting edge in the use of artificial breeding of cattle and has years of experience in Artificial Insemination and Embryo Transfer. He was one of the first in Australia to use these technologies to further the genetic base of EBBX.

Greg has been a Director of the Australian Poll Hereford Society and an office bearer of Agriculture Shows. Greg has Judged Cattle at many Royal and Regional shows in Australia and overseas and was a Junior Champion judge at state level at age of 17.

Kerrie Ebbeck was born and brought up in the Regional town of Wollongong, New South Wales. She moved to Sydney at a young age but had the 'land' and 'animals' in her veins with her mother and close family being dairy farmers in Australia and Scotland. She had her roots in the country, albeit over ridden by the hustle and bustle of the city.

After leaving school she took up a position as a Veterinarian Nurse and is a position and career she has continued to be involved in today. Kerrie has worked in many and varied Vet Practices throughout the country and cities in New South Wales.
Large animals to small, Kerrie has been a sought after nurse all her working life. She has many great friends all over rural Australia from various meetings made through her caring for animals both big and small. Kerrie, for the past 2 years, also teaches at TAFE in the subjects of animal handling and trainee vet nursing.

Kerrie and Greg have six wonderful children. Over the past years Kerrie has certainly been a hands on partner to Greg in their cattle operations. Kerrie has been to every Royal show in Australia many times over and is always on hand to keep 'show days' as free from stress as she can.

Kerrie is well known throughout Australia and North America as having a great eye for cattle and has judged at numerous cattle shows with Greg as a husband and wife pair and is heavily involved in all aspects of Ebbeck Family Farms day to day running, from office and secretarial work to help at calving and AI time to sale day coordination. Kerrie also had the honor of being awarded the Champion Parader at the Melbourne Show.

Kerrie has traveled extensively with Greg to many countries in their search for new and superior genetics. Her input and constructive thoughts on cattle are always welcomed by other breeders.

Throughout this time managing to juggle the demands of six young children, now older, but non the less demanding, a house that is always full of cattle clients, overseas cattle friend's sons and daughters, or just youngsters staying to get experience at the Ebbeck farm for a week or two or month or three and of course taking care of her husband Greg is something that Kerrie does with the joy of the loving spirit that she has. To say she is busy is an understatement, but happily busy and always with her infectious smile to the fore.
