Douglasdale Charolais Stud was established in 2005 using a basis ofgenetics provided by Palgrove Charolais Stud, Airlie Charolais Stud, Quicksilver, Violet Hills and Rosedale Charolais Stud.
Since then we have stabilised high quality genetics so that we now have a quality breeding herd exhibiting moderate birth weights with our females showing high milking rates, raising early maturing claves which are being used extensively by commercial breeders to produce vealers which are marketed to local butchers. Our vealers in our commercial herd where we have used Charolais bulls across Black Baldy, Murray Grey, Shorthorn and Angus cows have matured at 9 months to dress at approximately 200kg. We are marketing these vealers to a number of Central Coast and Newcastle butchers at a very attractive set price so that our cows in our commercial herd are returning well in excess of $750 per year.
In the slideshow above you can see great examples of the highest quality of stud cattle produced on our farm. For example, Palgrove Beckham is a fine prize winning bull coming in at 1128 kilograms. Other prize winning stud cattle on our farm are Douglasdale Beetson, Douglasdale Jerome, Douglasdale Bertram, Douglasdale Jumbo, Douglasdale Viagara and Palgrove Beckham.
