In 2002, our family moved from a large cattle operation at Gumlu in North Queensland to Glenmorgan, Guyra. Immediately we purchased high quality Angus Breeders to form a herd of 550 cows. Cattle were purchased locally with the bloodlines of Wattletop, Glenavon and Bald Blair and later purchases of Ardrossan, Hazeldean, Pine Creek and Speriby North to our herd. Extensive AI & ET programs have been carried out for fifteen seasons & all cows are AI’d. Wattletop has been a major influence on our stud with 120 females purchased. This year we have added a large draft of females from Yamba Angus and Dance Angus.
In January 2020, we purchased the neighbouring property, Seaforth and have double our land holding. This will allow us to finish our bulls on a pasture combination of fescues, clovers, oats and rye.
Our focus has always been on selling pasture prepared yearling bulls. We believe yearling bulls allow the introduction of superior genetics into herds a year earlier resulting in faster genetic improvement to your herd. Their introduction into a herd has the potential to allow breeders to extend the working lives of bulls by a year or more, lowering the bull costs of a herd. We believe yearling bulls offer a lower base cost, this reduces bull costs per calf and boosts profitability.
We sell pasture prepared Yearling Bulls from Easy Doing, High Marbling, Quiet cattle from Top EBV Sires from the USA, NZ and Australia. Our cattle are extremely quiet and have had extensive yard weaning and have been trained with motorbikes, horses and dogs.The bulls we have on offer are well grown, structurally sound and ready to perform with good scrotal measurements. Docility is a major factor in selecting our sale bulls and this is done through drafting and management of cattle with horses, dogs, motorbikes and kids.
Come and check out the bulls and visit warm and sunny Guyra …
