Snapshots……. Autumn/Winter

Snapshots……. Autumn/Winter

YES !!  ……FINALLY , our website is back up and running once more after many months of being offline!

So,  a quick update on some of the happenings here at Boogal Cattle  Co over the past few months may be in order !

We have been lucky with the seasons and have enjoyed a reasonably good year, very kind winter with only a few mild frosts, and a few decent falls of rain with intermittent smaller showers.

A few of the snaps to follow include a quick look at weaning muster, our involvement at World Brahman Congress, Preg Testing, Bull Selling and the beginning of the Calving season as we come in to the month of August.

We are very much a family run enterprise and it gives us a lot of pleasure to see the the grandchildren  taking their part in the muster.

Our PADDOCK SALES of our young Brahman and Charbray sires has been extremely strong this year with very early enquiry with the result that 80 bulls have already found new homes to both repeat clients and new clients . We thank you for your support and enthusiastic response  to the quality of our young sires.
