Show and sale success for Kaiuroo Brahmans

Tom Emmery and Jennifer McCamley of Ag Resource Management, Kaiuroo Station, Dingo were delighted with the success achieved by Kaiuroo Brahman cattle at the Australian Brahman Breeders’ Association’s Annual Commercial Brahman Female Show & Sale at Gracemere. It was the first public outing for the ‘new’ Kaiuroo livestock product since the property changed hands and has come under the management of their Company.

Among the awards won by the Grey Brahman females from Kaiuroo were first in the class for Pen of Heifers under 3yo PTIC, first and second in the class for Pen of Cows under 10yo PTIC, and Reserve Champion Pen of the Show. The Kaiuroo heifers and cows then went on to create strong buying demand recording the equal top heifer price of the day. Judging was conducted by Cam Hughes, ‘Malarga’, Brooweena.

“It was tremendous for the Kaiuroo Aggregation cattle to stand up at the lead of an excellent Show yarding,” Jennifer McCamley said, “the quality and performance of your breeding herd is the catalyst for success of every beef breeding operation, and the attributes required by commercial cattle producers are the key to optimising production in Central and Northern herds.”

The Kaiuroo Aggregation of properties, approximately 220 kms North West of Rockhampton, carry nearly 10,000 head of cattle. A large scale, stud bull breeding operation is in place with Kaiuroo’s home bred bulls utilised in their commercial herd, which is targeted at production for the organic beef market, domestically and internationally. “The performance of our commercial herd is a reflection of our seedstock enterprise, so it is good to benchmark that side of production at events such as this important Show and Sale for commercial females,” Jennifer said.
