Come for a ride as we share a few snaps from our mustering and weaning efforts over the past couple of weeks here at Bimbadeen…

Not too concerned at new independance… as long as the hay is kept up to them!

…and into their new paddocks – with a river view!

We are still in the process of weaning some commercial cattle and Amanda will get down to the serious business of handling the weaner bulls and heifer as soon as the weaning is complete. We will introduce you to some of our new young bulls as well as the sales team for Rocky ABCA Sale this eyar.

Hope you enjoyed this peek into our wean.

Cheers
