  • The Dam side of the Black Program

    We believe we have bred some great Brangus cow families and it is with these dams that we are breeding the Burenda Blacks.

    The sire side is coming from high growth Angus bulls such as Burenda QBUC38 and QBUG23.
    Photos of some of the dams indicate the strength in the dam side.

    There are more photos of Burenda Blacks dams here.

  • Spring 2012 Newsletter

    The H spring calves, Angus and Brangus, have all safely arrived.  The end of September saw the 500th tagging of the year for the Angus, leaving about 20 for early October.

    The majority are either AI or ET with some great calves on the ground.  The F heifers calved down in July and August with very few problems. The TeMania Africa (VTMA217), Aryvale Bartel (HIOE7) and Lawsons VLYC402 look very good along with calves by our own TeMania Discreet (VTMD894).

  • Cattle Yards

    WHEN the Dalby Downs cattle operation began to outgrow its existing set of timber yards last year, manager Jonathan Schmidt looked to the principles of US livestock handling expert Temple Grandin for guidance on designing a replacement. 

    Mr Schmidt's aim was to combine a safe and comfortable working environment for both people and cattle in a design that effectively made cattle "want" to work for their handlers. 

    The design also had to account for existing infrastructure in the form... Read more
