NEW SIRES @ CHADWICK DOWNS

Check out the very latest additions to the powerful sire battery at Chadwick Downs Duff Glentana G38 is just a youngster at 17mths and offers a wealth of bone, type and a faultless temperament.

Glentana brings a beautiful clean polled head and a fresh pedigree to the Chadwick Downs herd.

'We're seeing a huge growth in Red Brangus amongst commercial cattlemen wanting to soften the breeders & ad an element of efficiency and fertility to cow herds that they have been breeding with euro-type bulls in the past. It's a great opportunity to get the very best of both worlds'.

Burradoo Paradise 2040 makes his way into the CD Braford program bringing an outstanding outcross pedigree containing some of the Breed's most influential individuals.

Paradise is a forth generation Polled sire with a lovely thin, soft coat and loads of character. With a Burradoo Paradise 2040moderate mature size, Paradise 2040 is expected to work extremely well over Grandeur and Absolute-sire females as well as daughters of the heavy-boned and thick-set CD Hefner.

 GO WEST! ~ TO WANAARINGWanaaring Bulls at Daybreak

Chadwick Downs prides itself on breeding some of the toughest bulls bred from generations of females with cast-iron constitutions and based on a grass-fed, real world prodcution system. Its for this very reason that CD Bulls do so well in Far West NSW.

The second shipment of Bulls to Lenroy Station at Wanaaring left for their 800km journey at daybreak to join breeders on their annual muster.

"Bulls that go to the far west of NSW must be tough as nails, yet their progeny must be able to finich in a season. Mustering & ease of handleing is a major selection priority, thats why we have worked closely with our clients to select only naturally docile, polled bulls, with mobility and softness".

Chadwick Downs is now Australia's Premier Export Collection Facility, exporting more Beef Cattle Genetics than any other Center and incorporating the very latest diagnostic and freezing technology.



Brangus Trade Stand

"We are looking to increase exposure of our sale bulls in central Qld as well increase the level of awareness about Export Opportunities for Australian Cattle Genetics".

"Australian Genetics are popular in the Global Cattle Market and Australian Breeders really need to invest in their product and look at genetics sales as a legitimate market". "Too often this market is not addressed very well and Australians in general have a very poor record of self-promotion in the past and have been overtaken by markets like the USA. It really is Australian Cattle Producers' Time To Shine". Marty Lill Chadwick Downs
