The Success of Wajatryn Droughtmaster Stud is due to the commercial relevance of our entire business.
Our Females, stud and commercial, have proven their worth over repeated dry seasons. A Wajatryn female must exhibit Fertility Plus, Good Temperament and Excellent Mothering Ability. Progeny are assessed and females retained must meet our strict breeding standards. All of our females are ‘on their own’ Most of our breeders are on forest country south of Mundubbera. During drought we have given them some phosphorus supplement, but that’s it. They must produce a calf every year, no excuses. We say they ‘work for us.’
Quality breeders are the cornerstone of our business and calves equal cash.
Comprehensive performance records are maintained on each individually identified animal within our herd. Breeder and sire performance are recorded through to the hook. They must efficiently convert feed to weight and dollars.
Herd selection is based on visual appraisal, natural pest resistance, temperament and genetic history, to ensure Maximum Productivity for ourselves and our clients.
Good temperament is essential within the Wajatryn herd. We have always included our children in our business and there is always a small person on a pony or wandering about the yards. Aside from this obvious need to have quiet cattle we all know an animal with bad temperament is a time waster in the paddock and yards.
Finally, if they don’t meet our breeding standards there is always room in the bullock or cull female paddock. Cull animals, male and female, are finished and sent to meatworks.
We cannot afford ‘passengers’ in our beef operation.
