Industry Update What a year 2020 has already been- in many areas across the country we have finally received rain, then there were the bushfires,
Rockley Brahmans’ clients are nationwide stud cattle breeders and commercial beef cattle producers looking to expand their herd with elite bulls and females, whose characteristics include sound fertility, temperament and efficiency.
Established in the mid-fifties by late beef producer Arnie Kirk, Rockley Brahmans stretches across three properties in Central Queensland. Cedars covers 571 hectares located just south of Banana, while Rockley in Bajool and Ungarra west of Moura each comprise more than 2,500 hectares. We also run a commercial European Union (EU) accredited herd.
Today Chris Kirk and his son Ashley manage Rockley Brahmans. Ashley has travelled extensively to gain invaluable insights from premium beef cattle producers across the country and internationally.
His ingenuity and professionalism led Ashley to be selected as one of only nine young Australians to participate in the 2015 Graeme Acton Beef Connections Mentor Program. He was also awarded an Australian Beef Industry Foundation (ABIF) 2013 Scholarship to take part in the Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Program.
