Out in the paddock… calves post-branding

Sharing a few snaps from a drive around Bimbadeen’s stud paddocks on a hot February weekend.

Cows and calves have all settled beautifully since branding a fortnight ago…

Lovely softy stud heifer (Bimbadeen N57) enjoys the shade with her dam.

This young bull calf (N34) has the most amazing nature – definitely a cruiser.

These calves have had no handling, but this guy was happy to watch us from just a metre or so distance.

We are pleased with this year’s calves – like heifer N17 – soft, polled and great skin …

… and another example of Bimbadeen’s excellent 206/17 drop (N36).

Paddock roundup

Time for an update, as we prepare for weaning here at Bimbadeen!

We have been recovering (road and fence-wise) from January and February floods but the cattle have been enjoying a decent season and still enjoying good bodies of grass as we head into winter.

It’s lovely to see calves blooming and streams running – despite the extra work those creeks have caused!

The boys have been busy sorting females, and selecting and preparing bulls as we head into bull sale season.

We are very happy with this year’s line of bulls…

All those looking to secure their Bimbadeen brangus bulls are invited to call Mark to discuss inspection soon.

As Bruce and Barb are currently enjoying a well-earned trip overseas, all calls should be make to the ‘Upson Downs’ number.

We hope your season is treating you well, and that recent rains have reached those in the west who have missed out so far.

Make sure you check back here for some more Bimbadeen news – an announcement coming soon!

Stud muster

It’s been glorious Autumn weather here at Bimbadeen, making our late branding musters a real pleasure.  So we thought we’d share some glimpses with you, taken during one of our days in a stud paddock this week.

The granite boulders of our open country often marks a favourite resting place for our breeders.

They look surprised to be caught mid-mouthful sometimes – still pretty, even with her lunch dangling from her lips!

A young heifer bemused at the attention of the crazy lady with the Nikon glued to her face…

Mother and son playing around …

The incredible shade tree in the middle of the dip yards – the kids think it’s the Enchanted Faraway Tree!

Some of our hard workers take a break during the yardwork – from front: Blue, Patch and Cruel.

Hope you enjoyed your sneak peek into a day at Bimbadeen (a quick preview for those taking the Pre-Congress Brangus tour next month).

Cheers

The Bimbadeen Team
