Australia's first Brahman stud made a successful return to Beef Australia after a 25 year hiatus with an on-site bull sale set to benefit a newly established prefix.

The Brahman breed celebrated 75 years at the event and welcomed the breed's first stud, Wairuna, back to the showgrounds with a trade site of their genetics.

The Atkinson family were elated when their stud sire offering, Wairuna Zulu, sold for $8000 to 17-year-old Alex Tzioutzias for her stud Orea Brahmans at Baralaba.

Having established her stud last year, Ms Tzioutzias currently has seven heifers and was drawn to the 20-month-old polled son of Kenrol Zulu for his colour, great bone and bloodlines.

Her family run commercial cattle but Ms Tzioutzias always wanted to introduce a stud to their operation.

Speaking on behalf of Wairuna, Sharon Atkinson said they were back at Beef Australia with a bang.

"It's great to support a brand new start-up stud while we are celebrating 75 years of the breed," she said.

The bull was offered in the inaugural Beef Australia stud cattle sale held on AuctionsPlus.
