Miniature Herefords at the Herefords Australia Youth Expo

Today has seen the kick off of the Herefords Australia Youth Expo, held over the weekend in Wodonga VIC. The AMHBN has been represented by Caitlyn and Emily Nixon from Carrington Park Minature Hereford Stud, Wagga Wagga. The expo is a yearly event held in any nominated city and attracts entrants from across the country. It is a good way to introduce young people into the world of cattle showing with seminars on EBV’s, pasture management and many more interesting topics. We wish the Nixon girls all the best and good luck.

You can view more news and photos as it happens during the weekend on the Herefords Australia Youth Facebook page by clicking here

Apple Gully Miniature Herefords and the Summer of 2018

Summer 2017-18 can only be described as a stinker! Day after day of 36ºC +  and some nights where the temperature only dropped down to a balmy 27ºC.  And this is the Southern Highlands, the land of  green pastures, pleasant days and cool evenings in Summer. We would be forgiven for thinking we’d  moved to White Cliffs ( no offence,  White Cliffs, it’s just that out there you know what to expect in Summer.) This was topped off with well below average rainfall and days of hot westerly winds. The result, pasture stopped growing around Christmas and steadily dried off. This lead to one big problem – hungry cattle. Even though Herefords are considered good ‘doers’ they were starting to lose some condition.
