Welcome

Since inception in 2007 we have continued to strengthen our herd by selecting only the very best foundation females the industry has to offer. We are setting a platform for the future by using strict selection criteria that allows only the very top end of the breed to be part of our breeding program.

 

Ravensdale Poll Herefords aim is simple - to be a leading performance seedstock herd focusing on commerically important traits, fertility, live calves, growth rate and finishing ability, which improve their clients bottom line backed by superior client service.

 

2017 Beef Week Fields Days

Ravensdale looks forward to seeing new and old clients for the 2017 Land Southern Beef Week Field Days in July to view a cross section of herd and the 2017 sale bulls. The Field Day is an excellent opportunity to meet other breeders and discuss what Ravensdale genetics have to offer. Our display this year is at our new permanent home ‘Dalriada’, 9985 Hume Highway, Holbrook.

On display at Dalriada will be approximently 100 herd of cattle consisting of Bulls, cows and calves, yearling bulls, 2yo Heifers and yearling Heifers.

2015 has been a significant year for Ravensdale, with the biggest development being the expansion of our holding to 3500 acres.

We originally established our self at Tamworth but after much debate we decided to relocate to Holbrook.

“I am really pleased with the property, the district and it particular the services network available to the local cattle industry. I also like the fact there is so many successful seed stock herds nearby, it all helps set the bar at a level which drives you to do better.”

The move to Ravensdale’s new home, it offers great exposure with 8km frontage to the Hume Hwy only 4km north of Holbrook but more importantly it is an outstanding grazing property on the renowned Billabong creek with reliable water, excellent pastures and fertile soils. Being in an environment where the genetics merit of our animals can be achieved.

‘I am really excited about what lies ahead for the Australian cattle industry, with the shrinking global herd and rapid growth of the Asian and European appetites forred meat particularly within their huge middle class populations the ducks are really lining up’ said Brian. ‘We are already seeing it in the US where records prices are being paid for slaughter cattle and concer throughout a hungry Asia that they will have a bidding war for Australian beef, you would have to back that our beef industry has very prosperous times ahead’.
