The purpose was to establish an indigenous breed suited to the prevailing hot dry conditions. The person charged with the task of establishing this was Len Harvey, a member of the Department of Conservation and Extension under the auspice of the Ministry Of Agriculture. It was originally established in 1949/50. The Tuli Breeding Station was purpose built and was later to also serve as a government administration center. Len Harvey attended all of the local cattle sales and selected the animals he fancied that would prove to be good foundation stock.
