Courallie J is located at "Glenidle" in the undulating Northwest Slopes region of NSW in the Upper Horton/ Rocky Creek area, well known for producing quality beef.
In 2005 Jim, Poss, David, Matthew and Bec established Courallie J Herefords with the aquisition of females from the Courallie Herefords dispersal sale. In 2008 the decision was made to introduce some Poll Hereford genetics into our program with the purchase of Debarry MR at the final Debarry bull sale and poll females from various studs. Since that time we have used Poll semen from the top sires in the breed and have purchased Poll sires from reputable studs. We are still breeding Horned Herefords and intend to for many years to come.
We are currently running 200 commercial cows and 140 stud cows. Our aim is to breed sound & efficient hereford cattle for the vast and varied areas of Australia with carcase attributes suitable for purebred & cross breeding programs. A concious effort is also made to select sires with sound colour and pigmentation. Our breeding herd is run under commercial conditions on native pastures with white and sub clovers introduced. The sale bulls are run on the same pastures from weaning in May untill April the following year when they are put onto oats for sale prep.
We hold an annual bull sale every year in August at Glenidle where we are currently offering 30 quality bulls each year. We are using the lastest technologies such as Breedplan, AI and ET to improve our herd and to increase the rate of genetic gain. Breedplan is used as a tool to achieve this goal along side the physical appraisal of the animal.
We are proud of our cattle and welcome you to come and inspect our herd.
