We are a Red Angus Cattle Stud (my husband, myself and my twin son and daughter, age 21, are actively involved in the running, with my daughter still living at home doing her uni degree). Running up to 100 head on 4 different properties, ranging up to 30 minutes from our home block. We show our cattle at local ag shows with our two main shows being Ekka this year and Sydney in 2016. Also we do embryo transferring meaning we obtain the semen from overseas, artificially inseminating the cow, then flushing to obtain the eggs when fertilized. Then we transfer the eggs into a surrogate cow who carries the calf to term and raises it. We also have a fodder system, which means we put barley seed into trays, it self waters, in six days we have barley sprouts for our show cattle. We also have a small flock sheep, hens, horses, dogs cats and goats we milk. We are 20 minutes from Toowoomba.
We would love people to enjoy participating and helping with general farm work, such as fencing, feeding cattle as well as gardening, mowing lawns. Must have a moderate understanding English, as we are a working farm and must be able to understand instructions so as not to endanger themselves. Depending on the time of year, we will be traveling to compete at shows with our cattle, which we would be happy for people to participate. We mostly eat what we have bred off our land, beef, lamb, pork and vegetables for our main meals with occasionally eating out.
