The Brownson family of the Burdekin Brahman Stud at Charters Towers will offer nine top-quality grey bulls at Big Country in February.THE strategic acquisition of key sires by the Burdekin Brahman Stud has begun to pay dividends for the Charters Towers-based operation.
Stud principals, the Brownson family, have been breeding Brahmans since 1960, and have invested heavily in new sires to boost their breeding program over the past few years.
The fruits of these investments will be on display at Big Country next month when the Burdekin Brahman Stud offers nine top-quality grey bulls.
Catalogued from lot 217 to lot 225, the draft includes eight horned bulls and one polled bull, all aged 21 to 22 months.
John Brownson said the draft features two select sires (lot 217 and lot 218) by the JDH Gardner son, Ngamba Mr Universal, which was purchased as a calf for $18,000.
“Lot 217, Burdekin Soldier, is a very long, stylish bull, and lot 218, Burdekin Sir Guardsman, has a faultless temperament and is a very easy- going bull,” he said.
The Brownsons will also offer six herd bulls (lot 220 to 225) by the JDH Western son, PBF Heineken.
“His calves have been very quiet and have shown great weight for age,” Mr Brownson said.
“Lot 224 is a polled bull and lot 219 is by the very fertile $20,000 sire in Lanes Creek Palestine.”
