The MacKenzie River Kaiuroo aggregation will feature as a platinum tour at Beef Australia 2018, on Monday May 7.
The tour will depart at 9am with visitors flying in a light aircraft from the Rockhampton Airport.
Kaiuroo is an amalgamation of five neighboring properties and visitors will be treated to a comprehensive introduction to operations led by Jennifer McCamley and Tom Emmery of Ag Resource Management.
“At Kaiuroo, we are proud to be part of Beef Australia 2018 and look forward to welcoming guests as part of the property tour program,” Jennifer said.
Kaiuroo is a highly productive stud and organic commercial beef breeding, irrigation and drylands cropping enterprise in the heart of the fertile basin.
“Guests will see first-hand Kaiuroo’s unique and diverse mixed farming operation, largescale irrigation systems and registered grey and red Brahman herd,” she said.
“We are looking forward to offering visitors an insight into the cutting-edge breeding program employed at Kaiuroo.”
The couple will showcase their innovative approach, which combines the best practical procedures with the very latest science in Brahman breeding.
They will present how profitability in their commercial herd has defined their breeding objectives and how they are using a carefully designed genotyping and phenotyping program to describe the genetic merit of animals in the seedstock herd.
The Kaiuroo registered herd is currently involved in a MLA Donor Company funded project.
The project aims to measure phenotypes for male and female reproductive performance in an influential Brahman seedstock herd.
The data collected will contribute to improved accuracies for reproduction EBVs and selection indices across the Brahman Breedplan analysis.
David Johnston and Matt Wolcott from AGBU will be presenting the MDC project objectives, early outcomes, and the latest developments in the genetic evaluation for tropical beef breeds on the tour.
Paul Williams from TBTS will demonstrate ovarian scanning as well as presenting key updates from the Brahman BIN project.
Kaiuroo is set to be a highlight of Beef Australia 2018, and the tour is highly recommended.
