We aim to produce quiet, fertile, functional grey POLL Brahmans for our clients.
We have sold our Glastonbury property and our complete Brahman stud herd is available for sale.
All cattle now sold
Fertility is by far the single most important driver of profitability in commercial herds and hence is our principal emphasis. However we also place great importance on temperament, growth (our cattle generally have above breed averages growth EBV’s without being excessive), doing ability and conformation, we also even cull for buffalo fly resistance.
The quality of our breeding herd was built up very quickly by the use of extensive embryo transfer programs over 10 years ago using superior donor cows purchased from Lancefield, Brahrock and other studs. Click on the “Donor Cows” link above for photos and further details.
Sires used in those ET programs included just breed greats as JDH Datapack, Mr International, JDH Karu Manso 800, Mr V8 287/5 (Superstroke), JDH Dynasty, JDH Mr Brandon and many others.
For the last five years we have been concentrating on using good boned, fertile POLL bulls either by artificial insemination or by natural service. AI sires used to date include Huonfels Jacob Rio and Fairy Springs Dazzler. For the natural servicing we have used quality poll grey bulls by JDH Karu Manso 800 and JDH Mr Brandon.
Our CHARBRAYS are generally 25% Charolais and 75% Brahman and are by poll Brahman bulls out
of 50/50 cows by our $10,000 Palgrove Charolais bull. They are growthy, easy doing cattle and are all extremely quiet.
