It's been over 10 years since we have last conducted an IVF program, but yesterday we tried again.
The collection went very well. Our fingers are crossed that they fertilise, grow, and eventually result in live calves. We know that IVF work isn't easy, but nothing in life that matters ever is. ... See MoreSee Less

This is a great summary of the phenomenal bull sales across all breeds in Australia last year. We are once again thrilled and thankful that we were included in this list. A BIT OF CATTLE TRIVIA: Most Australian breed societies use an international lettering system to indicate the year stud animals were born (link in comments).
"L" years have been especially great for Telpara Hills. This year, we topped both the Roma and Rocky Brangus sales with "L" Series bulls, born in 2015. In 1993 Telpara Hills topped the Angus National with the last round of "L" series bulls produced, Telpara Hills Willyboy L21, proving that success is no fluke, but comes from years and years of hard work and skill.

Telpara Hills are excited to be 1/2 owners with Lake Majestik on this wonderful female. We actually flushed this female back in 2008 when she still resided at Camp Cooley. When the opportunity came up to purchase this breed legend I said to Nic "we must get 541M40" ... See MoreSee Less
We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of another breed matron- Ms Brinks Transformer 541M40. Thank you Westall Ranches, LLC - Brinks Brangus Cattle for the opportunity. This great female has 161 registered calves and will continue to be used extensively on our farm. We are anxious to get her home and enjoy seeing her daily.
