Gyranda opens gates to knowledge


If you ever wanted to know why the best and brightest are starting to study agriculture, what beef research is being done right here in Central Queensland, or when solar irrigation might actually be a reality then you should put aside August 17 to attend the Gyranda Open Day at Theodore.


Gyranda will be offering free smoko and lunch along with access to some of Central Queensland’s best minds to help you make the right decisions for your beef breeding business.  Dr David Swain from UCQ is head of the agricultural degree and leading much of the local research into heifer heat detection, weighing technology and tropical genetics. Paul Williams and Tim Emery from Tropical Beef Technology Services are the experts on EBVs and how best to use them in your bull selection.

There will also be the full line-up of Gyranda bulls available at their annual sale on Sept 21. The Gyranda genetics have built a reputation for consistently delivering those most prized of commercial attributes – weight gain and calves on the ground. The Open day provides the perfect opportunity to select the genetics best suited to your operation in a relaxed environment and with industry experts on hand. Smoko starts at 9:30am.
