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…

Sneak peek @ 2016 sale bulls

Branding time @ Bimbadeen

In between heat waves and drizzling rain, we have managed to complete the 2012 branding here at Bimbadeen. After the floods of 2011, it was nice to have firm ground underfoot to walk our breeders to the yards. This time last year we were bogging horses in this exact spot! The calves are looking fantastic…

Houston

Earlier this year, Mark and Amanda (and children Jack and Sarah) travelled to the USA – primarily to attend the Houston Livestock Show and promote the 2012 World Brangus Congress to be held in Australia.  It was an amazing trip for many reasons, and Houston (and Texas) showed us some incredible hospitality while we were…

Thanks to all who took the drive to visit us at Arthur’s Knob for our Open Day yesterday. The weather was kind to us and we had a great day talking with cattlemen and women and showcasing the temperament and type of our red and black Brangus weaner bulls and heifer, with a few two-year-olds…
