‘BUNDA SANTA GERTRUDIS’

The Story Thus Far…

Bunda Santa Gertrudis was established in 2009. We started with a small number of females from the ‘Rosgar Stud’ at Tenterfield and we also purchased females from ‘Gyranda’ in the same year.

Our operation includes a commercial herd of approximately 480 cows and farming in the Wyaga area, 75km North East of Goondiwindi, Queensland. Our commercial breeding herd is currently 85% Santa and Santa Cross cows and we use all Santa bulls.

We aim to increase our stud numbers over time and are focused on our female herd. We aim to breed poll, medium framed, fertile feminine cows.

Sires have been used from a variety of studs through AI programs including Kelly Wallah Babylon 757, Diamond H Jasper E159 and Rosevale Rippon U27.

Other sires that have been introduced include ‘Cardona Organic’ (P) tested 99% Homozygous poll and ‘Canowindra Magic’ (P) purchased at the Cardona/Canowindra sale and ‘Dangarfield Xerox’ (P) from the Dangarfield Sale in 2015. Sires purchased in 2014 include ‘Talgai Inception I54’ (P) at the Heartland sale and ‘Wightfields Enrique J103’ (P) at the Wandoan Sale both of which have been tested 100% Homozygous Poll.

Other/Past sires included bulls from ‘Rosevale’ and ‘Brookside’ for use in both the stud and commercial herds. We retained ‘Bunda Gasper’ (P) AI in 2013 for use in our stud herd as we were extremely impressed with his growth, quiet temperament and overall structural soundness.

In 2013 we purchased 6 ‘Brookside’ Bulls for a combination of stud and commercial purposes. The purchase of these bulls was mainly for poll genes and high breed content that is a feature of the Brookside Studs long history.

Our current crop of sale bulls are sired by ‘Brookside 2993’ (P) and ‘Bunda Gasper G36’ (AI) and we are extremely positive on the current performance of these bulls, the majority of which are Poll due to the influence of Brookside 2993 who is 100% Homozygous Poll.

Our current crop of stud weaners are sired by ‘Brookside 2851’ (P) and ‘Talgai Inception’ (P).

Our aim is to produce easy doing cattle of medium frame, good muscling and structure, high breed character and an emphasis on fertility. Temperament is also considered a priority.

 

We welcome any enquiries or inspections prior to the sale season or any time you are calling past.
