Quality Brooksby Angus

Brooksby Exclusive T49 Lot 10. Pictures Contributed.

Brooksby Angus was established in 1998 when the Collins family moved to the Bundarra area and purchased the property “Brooksby”. Bundarra is located in the New England of New South Wales which is highly sought after these days for its lush pasture grazing ability.

Stephen Collins has a long history, over 50 years, in the cattle industry with dairy farming on his families property at Tamworth, taking over from his parents in the 70’s. Then he developed a commercial based herd at his property at Delungra.

On moving from Delungra to Bundarra, Stephen and Leanne purchased the Angus commercial herd from Ian and Helen McDonald, that was on Brooksby at the time of purchase, which had some of the best Angus genetics used over many years.

He commenced breeding stud Angus cattle along with the commercial herd to diversify the operation. The base herd came from strong bloodlines from Wattletop Angus and two dispersals of Hopetoun Park and Tucklan Valley. There were other females added over the years from prominent studs in Victoria.

The property runs around 500 breeders and weaners from the herd constantly top or neartops the New England Armidale Weaner Sale, with some of the heavier weight calves up for sale every year. These are mainly sired by Brooksby bulls.

Recently, Kym and Jeff Liddle of CV Pastoral, Wandoan took out the grassfed section and Reserve Champion over all with grogeny at Rockhampton Beef 2024, from Brooksby Bulls. They have been purchasing our bulls now for over 15 years and have achieved tremendous results with their stock.

This year’s sale draft consists of 44 two year old bulls and 24 low birth weight yearling Angus bulls. They are a strong draft of bulls showing outstanding muscle expression. Any enquiries can be sent to the selling agents Nutrien Armidale or Armitage and Buckley Armidale.
