  • Burenda's New Black

    BURENDA Angus is poised to launch a new style of progeny, geared to producers demanding higher Angus content in the lines of Brangus cattle that have been bred at the Kaimkillenbun stud for the past decade.

    Three years ago, Burenda adjusted its breeding program to produce Brangus animals with up to 82pc Angus content. The Brangus breeding herd will produce up to 50-60 bulls for sale each year.

    The progeny are now launched as Burenda Blacks, and the first 18 to 24 month-old bulls will be...

  • Elite Genetics for Buyers

    QUEENSLAND Country Life’s popular Beef Week 2013 will be an important day for the Kaimkillenbun-based Burenda Angus Stud. They have chosen the day to launch their ‘Burenda Blacks’ breed of Bos Indicus-infused Black Angus cattle.

  • Launching Burenda Blacks!


    Burenda’s Beef Week Open Day on Thursday 18 July will mark an historic occasion in our history. This is the day we launch BURENDA BLACKS, our own breed of Bos Indicus-infused Angus cattle.

    BURENDA BLACKS are 80 per cent Angus - 20 per cent Bos Indicus, which we believe is an ideal fit for harsher tropical climates and northern production systems.

    At Burenda we have always responded to market demands, working for many years to improve genetic traits including meat quality, fertility,...

  • 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.

  • 2013 Autumn Update

    A decision was taken during 2012 to establish more leucaena and grass on some of the lighter cultivation country.  An area of about 400 acres (160 ha) was identified and Taramba leucaena seed was planted in the last week of October 2012.   The seed had been harvested the previous year from one of our older stands and was planted at 4.1kg ha in twin rows 1 metre apart and about 5 metres between the twin rows.  Seed was treated with inoculant and Cosmos (insect control)...

    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 competition was particularly strong on the Burenda offering, pushing the average price of a Burenda bull to $6156 and a top price of $11,000. The Kaimkillenbun based Burenda Angus Stud is clearly in favour...

  • 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

    A SIX-year expansion involving new land acquisitions and extensive property development has allowed the Dalby Downs cattle and farming business north of Dalby to capitalise on the benefits of economies of scale and internal value-adding. Dalby Downs is an 8500 acre aggregation of farming and grazing country stretching from the Bunya Highway near Aronui Feedlot across to the Kaimkillenbun township north east of Dalby. 
    The operation has been carefully expanded over the past six years under...
