After completing year twelve at Rockhampton Grammar School in 2008 James came home to work with us preparing cattle for shows. In 2009 he was the associate Judge for the Brahmans at the RNA. James won the 2011 Queensland Young Judges competition for Stud Cattle at the RNA and then represented Queensland in the nation finals in Perth. James commenced work with Elders Moura in 2013, working in livestock sales and Auctioneering. At the end of 2014 James returned home to work with our cattle marketing business, NBC Beef Pty Ltd., which specialises in all slaughter and feedlot supply chains. James operates his own stud, JK Brahmans and is part owner of Newburra Brahman Stud purchased in 2014.
Ooline I Stud
Isaac completed grade twelve at Rockhampton Grammar School in 2012. He came home to work with us for 12 months before heading to UNE Armidale to study a Bachelor of Agriculture majoring in Animal Production. Isaac enjoys working at home when not at university and has his own Brahman Stud prefix, Ooline I. Isaac has a keen interest in the commercial aspect of our business constantly keeping abreast of market pricing and cattle yielding rates.
Megan is currently year 10 at Rockhampton Grammar School, where she is a full time boarder. During her holidays and long weekends she loves nothing more than coming home and helping with the stud, riding her horse Goldie and mustering the cattle. Megan is keen to start her own stud. Megan has also purchased her own steers to finish at the feedlot.
