WELCOME TO RUAVIEW SIMMENTAL AND ANGUS
Simmental and Angus Breeders - John and Helen Hammond
Size and Contour of farm
The farm was originally 300 acres of flat volcanic loam soils, however recently most of this has been turned into a dairy block, with the purchase of 40 acres across the road and only 70 acres of flat land being retained on the home block for the stud bulls and a further 150 acres of hill country nearby being obtained in a long term lease arrangement for the cow and calf block. Much of the lease block has a papa base. The home block has been in the Hammond family for over 100 years.
Family Focused Farming
The Hammond family have farmed our land for generations, and are passionate about what we do. Having grown up on and worked the land his whole life, John Hammond as become an expert in the area of Angus and Simmental stud breeding. Together he and his wife Helen have been growing National and International reputation for producing structurally sound cattle.
At Ruaview we aim to breed practical performance cattle that can go anywhere and perform.
