Sydney Show 2010

March 27, 2010

There’s only 2 weeks until Red Angus Judging at the 2010 Sydney Show. Looking forward to catching up with Red Angus Breeders from all Australia, and indeed cattle breeders from all over the world. There are some people who are concerned by showing cattle and how it is different from commercial production – we think of it as a social event with peers and a good opportunity to compare our cattle side by side with others. We will also have Breedplan performance figures available soon for these animals.

Hello all – well what a difference rain makes. In the past week we have had close to 6 inches of rain, which even prevented us attending Pittsworth Show! We have entered 3 head for Sydney Show in a months time and thought a little practice run at Pittsworth would be in order – never mind – we’d much rather have the rain!


Seasons Greetings

Wishing everyone a safe and happy festive season and a new year filled with plenty of rain.


Catching Up

December 22, 2009

Well – what a big couple of months. In summary:
The bulls sold well at Ag Grow Emerald, with B07 topping the Red Angus draft, selling to Charters Towers.
The World Angus Forum was huge – we met so many lovely people from all over the globe. Saw some very good bulls – especially during our travels through the USA.
We were please to host the Red Angus Society’s President Mr Earl Dakin following the Qld Red Angus Meeting last month – pity there wasn’t a blade of grass to be seen.
We have just had 32 mils of rain this week – to say its been welcome would be a dramatic understatement.


Only 31 days to go…..

Its only 31 days until we depart for the World Angus Forum. To be held at Spruce Meadows, Calgary, it will be a great opportunity to catch up with Angus breeders from all over the world. see waf0980front


Rain and other welcome visitors

June 7, 2009

This week we were honored to have two special visitors – Mr Alex Podolinsky and Ms Francis Porter from the Bio-dynamic Research Institute. Alex is well known throughout the world as the pre eminent authority on Bio Dynamic farming and it was fabulous to have the opportunity to show he and Francis around the herd. For more information on Bio-dynamic farming see
Have also had light showers over the last week that has seen the grass start to grow!

Kel & Steve

Well done to Stephen Hayward and Kellie Smith, Advance Charolais and K5X Angus , who won Supreme Champion Exhibit of this year’s Sydney Show with Liberty, who was shown on behalf of the late Danny Duke. Stephen and Kellie ended up with a swag of ribbons in the Charolais Section. Gav & Kiril Iseppi and Milton and Cheryl Fowler won Champion Red Angus Bull, so a good show all round for the Queenslanders. PS Kellie and Stephens’ Angus bulls are looking good for Beef 09 too.


Happy Easter

All over bar the shouting…..

March 8, 2009

Recovering from the big Pittsworth Angus Feature Show, held yesterday. Raffs took out Champion Cow and Milton and Cheryl Fowler together with Gav & Kirril Iseppi won the Champion Bull. The win was fitting, as Milton and Cheryl had work long hours to organise the whole event. Our bull calf won his class and the baby heifer came 2nd. Most importantly neither of them got away, even after the bagpipes were played!
