Objective: The Bishop family, at Cushnie, west of Wondai, target the weaner market turning their Limousin-cross calves off at around nine months of age and preferably at 300kg-plus.

The Bishop family has been crossing Limousin bulls over their Santa Gertrudis, Droughtmaster and Angus breeders for added bone and muscle, which is helping them achieve the shape they're after in the progeny.



Howdy. Matt here. I've been with Australian Community Media for 11 years working predominantly across the North Queensland Register and Queensland Country Life. If it's a special publication or feature appearing in these papers, I'm likely the bloke you'll be talking too, particularly if it's beef cattle related.
