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.
