Rockingham Santa Gertrudis on the Western Plain
With the help of friends and clients we will offer quality Santa bulls and quality young females. The facilities at Tara are 1st class with the selling centre under cover, air strip, accommodation on property, and centrally located just 30 km off the Kidman highway. Tara is in the heart of Santa gertrudis country. Big paddocks, long walks to water, not always lush food, but a healthy environment.
We are excited to give our many friends and clients an insight into what Santa cattle can do under these conditions along with giving graziers of western NSW and QLD an opportunity to purchase quality cattle acclimatised to their conditions. We will be supporting buyers from all areas with our own truck running to major centres, such as Bourke, Wagga Wagga and Dubbo.
