  • Fat V Thin Weights on Burenda Cow Productivity

    After reading the 'Fat V Thin weights on cow productivity' article in the Queensland Country Life 7th August 2014, I had a warm feeling in regards to the direction that the Burenda Angus and Brangus herds have been taking.   Breeding heifers and cows with rib and rump fat cover EBV's above breed average has been our focus for the last few years as I have always believed in a number of things associated with this.   Meaty maternal easy doing Burenda females have the ability...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
