I promised to say more about our decision to purchase Elmo Picasso 1023/7 (P). Even before he entered the showgrounds at Beef 2018, we knew he was a bull who might suit our breeding program. Now that he’s at home…
Our sound reputation as preferred breeders is the result of our ethical handling practices, consistent breeding regimes and follow-up services for buyers, including ongoing consulting. We supply scanned data for eye muscle area, rib and rump fat as well as bull breeding soundness evaluations, conducted by veterinarians, that outline semen motility and physical attributes.
Rockley Brahmans has long been known for breeding quality herd bulls. Our herd bulls enjoy high level, consistent breeding and handling practices that deliver superior cattle. Breeding is well under way and we expect to replenish our herd bull numbers in 2016 with the view to reclaiming our position as market leader for supplying high numbers of elite herd bulls.
We have refined decades-old calf grading techniques to specifically suit Red Brahman cattle. Our Rockley Brahmans Weaner Grading System is based on 3 key elite cattle attributes – temperament, efficiency and future genetic gains. The system proves to be an efficient way to identify future elite bulls and females capable of producing premium product from an early age.
Rockley Brahmans is known for breeding elite Red Brahman bulls and females that provide genetic gains for stud and commercial producers seeking more profitable, high-performance cattle. Stud bulls are registered with the Australian Brahman Breeders’ Association (ABBA). Unregistered paddock-reared herd bulls are also available for purchase.
Our Core Values
As breeders of premium beef cattle, we believe it’s our responsibility to offer total transparency for our clients. We understand that whilst visual assessments are important, so too is history. This is why Rockley Brahmans provides comprehensive documentation prior to purchase, including vaccination data and breedplan insights.
Our clients are breeders of stud cattle and producers of commercial beef cattle who understand the need for a combination of strong genetics, quiet temperament and efficiency to produce productive, profitable cattle. For decades we have assessed our cattle against the 7 key attributes that describe truly elite cattle.
