Welcome to Glenwarrah Herefords & Booksby Angus

Originally 'Glenwarrah' was the name given to Steve's A.I.S. stud, chosen by Steve and his mother Joyce Collins, combining the two cultures Scottish and aboriginal with 'glen' meaning water and 'warrah' place of honey, for their Tamworth dairying property.

The hereford stud herd of 'Glenwarrah' was established 40 years ago by Steve, whose background came from dairying and a commercial crossbreeding beef operation at Tamworth.  The first stud cows were purchased from Strathleigh Herefords, these cows were mainly by the successful breeding bull Devon Court Coronet 22 with calves at foot by Tummel Jubilee 10.

2018 Drop Heifers Sold to Russia with love
This year due to tough seasonal conditions experienced by us and most of our clients we opted to do something we have never done before. We sold our 2018 drop of Angus and Hereford weaner heifers for export to Russia (yes the country). The sale and shipment was handled by Landmark International and required heifers of outstanding quality to be used for breeding purposes. In a normal season we would have kept a lot of the heifers but due to the conditions and also the uncertainty as to what the season was going to send our way we decided to export the majority of the drop of heifers from 2018. The heifers sold to Russia had to be within a weight range of 260-360 kgs empty and of good quality and type. They were inspected once here on the property and then trucked to Portland in Victoria to go into a quarantine situation before leaving Australia. They were all inspected again and examined, including blood tests, before being shipped to Russia (with Love). It would have been great to keep them here in Australia, but hopefully we can get some feedback as to their breeding quality and perhaps help open the Australian market to more Northern Hempishere buyers for our seed stock.  
David Strelitz with Brooksby bred Angus heifers
Recently Steve spent a very enjoyable morning with David Strelitz touring around his Uralla properties. David and son Gavin are repeat Brooksby Angus bulls buyers so it was a great opportunity to catch up, have a look around and see what sort of job the bulls are doing for them. It is also good opportunity to get to know them and their operation a bit better. It turns out that David grew up in the Uralla area. As a young man he went to Moree for 15 years for work and then returned in 1975 to manage 'Goldsworth' at Uralla for Mr Henry Belfield. Two years later, during the cattle crash, Mr Belfield sold 'Goldsworth' to David. This was the start to a very successful company Dasban P/L which now owns a number of properties in the Uralla area including 'Goldsworth' and 'Underwood'. Steve's comment on the day when he arrived home was: I was extremely impressed with their management practices and the standard of their cattle. Steve was 'chuffed' to learn that David and Gavin seem to be happy with the job the Brooksby Angus bulls are doing for their herd.
