Mt Brisbane is run by Carli McConnel and son Don, breeding pure Droughtmasters focusing on animals which adapt to conditions and meet changing market specifications. We were very pleased with how the Mt Brisbane genetics handled the 2020 severe drought. Cattle are now sold into the feedlot market as well as fattened to MSA standards. The growing replacement heifer market has created a new opportunity. The focus remains on fertility, temperament and market suitability.
The requirements have always been for easy care females that got in calf each year with no pampering giving progeny with good weight gain, good carcass qualities and good temperament.
