Oasis Droughtmasters

“Oasis Droughtmasters”, owned by the Geddes Family, whose goal it is to produce good quality cattle that will perform in all types of country.

Noel and Robyn have a long history within the cattle industry.  Noel’s family originated from Yaamba, while Robyn’s family from Banana.  Both Noel and Robyn’s grandparents were early pioneers of the Central Queensland area.

Noel and Robyn moved to Emerald in 1990, leasing the property “Innisfree”.  Three years later, in 1993, they bought the property “Oasis”, north-east of Emerald and first started crossing Droughtmaster bulls over their Brahman cows.

In 2002 they founded the “Oasis Droughtmaster Stud” and started selling bulls both locally, and to the Capricorn Droughtmaster Sale at Gracemere.

In 2007, Noel and Robyn bought the property ”Rosels”, on the flood plains just  south of Rockhampton, where their son, Adam now lives with his partner, Shelley.

Today, they continue to sell their bulls both out of the paddock, annually at the National Droughtmaster Sale at Gracemere, and for the first time this year at Highlands Sale, Clermont.

Strathfield Droughtmasters

Strathfield Droughtmaster Stud is a name that is recognized within the cattle industry as a producer of top quality stock. Strathfield is a family owned operation that takes enormous pride in being a foundation stud, with a reputation forged on honesty, integrity and hard work.We take great pride in the cattle we produce and would like to take this opportunity to invite you to browse through our web-site and gain an insight into the heart of our herd

The stud is now based at “Fletcher’s Awl” in Central Queensland. “Fletcher’s Awl” is a 11,317 hectare property which consists of iron-bark and Bloodwood ranges running onto open black soil plains. It is in a low rainfall belt – one year there may be up to 25 inches of rain, but more commonly it runs in the 10-15 inch bracket.   Droughtmaster cattle excel in this type of country as they have the survivability and adaptability to withstand the good times as well as the bad.

Strathfield Droughtmasters is a moderate sized stud with 200 registered females and 700 commercial droughtmaster cows. We endeavour to breed quality as opposed to quantity.  Our results are true testament to the quality of our cattle with Strathfield setting breed average records and topping vendor averages in the sale ring at multi-vendor sales on a regular basis.

We don’t select for one particular trait – instead we select cattle with a broad range of desirable traits within the Droughtmaster breed.  Strathfield places particular emphasis on selecting cattle with a good temperament, confirmation, fertility, weight gain, mothering and survivability. These cattle are bred in mountainous country where watering points are sparse, therefore they must possess good walking and foraging abilities which gives rise to the stud motto of “survivors when the going gets tough”.

Over the years, Strathfield has introduced fresh blood from such well-known herds as Redskin, Redwing, Mungalla, Wingfield, Greenacres, Billabong, Garthowen,  Glen Houghton, Huntly  and Kenlogan. This combination of introduced genetics into our solid female base has helped the Strathfield stud prefix to figure prominently in the pedigrees being chosen by both stud and commercial breeders.

Strathfield 9JE is owned and operated by Brodie and Josh Perry. This new stud has taken its knowledge and breeding from the great work of the parent stud of Strathfield. Strathfield 9JE has not only purchased great sires for their herd, but have bred a beautiful line of bulls and females making them a stud to keep your eye on.

Wolfang Droughtmasters

Since 1975, we, the Edwards Family, have run a commercial Droughtmaster herd, and in late 1998 we founded Tiggabon Stud however due to family succession we were forced to change the stud name and subsequently called it Wolfang. Wolfang was originally a British Food Corporation property put up for ballet in 1954 of which my family was fortunate enough to draw two blocks, which we still own today. The Wolfang Stud breeding herd is located at “Macintosh” Rockhampton however our bulls are prepared for sale at “Ivanhoe”& “Cooeeall” both via Wowan.

Wolfang Droughtmaster bulls have been very sucessful selling to both stud and commercial cattle producers. We are honoured to achieve world record price for a droughtmaster Registered bull in 2007, Wolfang Fred-o, who sold for $150,000.

Throughout the year, bulls are sold at varies sales including, Highlands Sale in Clermont, Droughtmaster National Sale in Rockhampton and the Central Reds Sale in Emerald. Paddock Sales are available all year round.

Our aim is to breed quality cattle suited to call aspects of our beef industry.
