GENETICS, PERFORMANCE, FERTILITY
As Stud Cattle producers, we have created a herd based on some of the best performance driven genetics in the breed
Grey Gum Droughtmaster Stud in the Scenic Rim have two Stud sires and 10 females from the High Country Stud. Genesis, one of the first offered sons of Glen Fosslyn Idol and Hadley, a Glenlands Quarry son. The bulls have genuine sire appeal, above average EBV’s, come from fertile bloodlines, are imposing figures and yet, are easy to work with. Both bulls have performed, achieving a +97% calving rate in the their single sire herds each year. 85% of their calves came in the first 6 weeks of the calving period this past season. No calving difficulty has ever been recorded in our program. The females haven’t missed a calf, are good mothers with plenty of milk and have continually been at the front end of calving windows.
We are very happy with the addition of High Country Genetics to our herd.

We have purchased High Country bulls annually since 2015 both at auction and in the paddock. These bulls, prepared on a silage based preparation, have been taken straight from the sale and worked solidly in staggered matings. They have never missed a beat and have proved to be everything we wanted and more. Looking just as good as when we purchased them, they had high conception rates, especially in the first 28 days of joining and were bloody good workers. Calving ease has also been impressive. We have never specifically picked “heifer bulls”, but all of the bulls have produced small calves, born like spaghetti that pile on the weight and grow like mushrooms.

We have purchased a number of joined and unjoined High Country females and have been thrilled with their performance. They are extremely quiet, easy to handle and an absolute joy to have in the paddock. Highly fertile, they calve easily, milk well, and have each produced quality calves, the most notable of which is Nindethana Henrietta who has been a successful member of our show team during the 2016 and 2017 show season, winning multiple broad ribbons including Junior Champion heifer at 2016 Royal Queensland Show. We have also been extremely happy with how easy the High Country team is to deal with and the wonderful after sales service.
