Jennifer McCamley and Tom Emmery of Kaiuroo, are proud to be part of Beef Australia 2018 and look forward to welcoming guests as part of the Westpac Property Tour program.
Kaiuroo is a highly productive stud and organic commercial beef breeding, irrigation and drylands cropping enterprise in the heart of the fertile Fitzroy river basin.
Visitors will see first-hand Kaiuroo’s unique and diverse mixed farming operation, large-scale irrigation systems and registered Grey and Red Brahman herd. What’s more, guests will gain an insight into the cutting-edge breeding program employed at Kaiuroo.
An amalgamation of five neighbouring properties nestled next to the MacKenzie River, visitors will be treated to a comprehensive introduction to operations led by Jennifer McCamely and Tom Emmery of Ag Resource Management.
Jennifer and Tom will showcase their innovative approach, which combines the best practical procedures with the very latest science in Brahman seedstock. They will present how profitability in their commercial herd has defined their objectives, and reveal how they have used a genotyping program to describe the genetic merits of animals in the seedstock.
The Kaiuroo registered herd is currently involved in a MLA Donor Company funded project. The project aims to measure phenotypes for male and female reproductive performance as a part of the Brahman Breedplan analysis from a seedstock herd. David Johnston and Matt Wolcott from AGBU will be presenting the MDC project objectives, early outcomes, and the latest developments in the genetic evaluation for tropical beef breeds on the tour. Paul Williams from TBTS will demonstrate ovarian scanning as well as presenting key updates from the Brahman BIN project.
