We are situated on the lush and beautiful King island in the middle of Bass straight, in the far north of Tasmania. We specialize in producing beef cattle for the Domestic and International MSA market.6126_138977116257545_492320146_n

Our stock graze the lush Rye Grass and Clover Pastures year round, we run an extensive grass management program using soil analysis tests to determine what we need to keep our pastures at their optimum production levels year round. We lime sand our pastures bi-annually, fertilize in Autumn and Spring, and rotate our paddocks every 5-14 days which are then spelled for a minimum of 4 weeks before being grazed again.

We sell our Grass finished quality Angus and Angus x bred cattle under the World Renowned King Island Beef Brand, and the Cape Grim Beef Brands. We also take great pride in breeding performance horses to campdraft, challenge, and be great horses for the whole family in all performance disciplines.

Quiet good natured correctly conformed horses bred with purpose to have form to function, natural balance and cow sense. We breed around 10 foals a year, stand two to three resident stallions at stud, and show our horses in most states of Australia.
