M & C Cranstone Ltd

We are an 1800 Ha sheep and stud beef operation at Fordell, 20 minutes from Whanganui. 

The property is situated in the Whangaehu Valley with medium hill-country supported by fertile riverflats. The property is farmed intensively carrying 18,000 stock units, with the 650 performance recorded hereford stud cows and 7,000 breeding ewes. 

The stud operation is focused on breeding Ezicalve yearling bulls for dairy and beef heifer mating and sold at our on-farm annual sale.

We have an intensive re-grassing programme and utilise modern technology and good management to maximise our stock performance.
