Below is news for Midas Gelbvieh. Latest show results, stud purchases, family news. Please click on the years for news from that year.

 

2014 -- This year has been a nightmare with the drought taking its toll on the Midas herd with a reduction in numbers of cows by at least 50%. It has been a struggle to keep cattle alive and to get them in calf again -- the cost is amazing. Last year we made a consious decision to not show this year and luckily we have not. We will be back in 2015. I must say that Midas cattle that we sold have been performing very well in the show ring which is pleasing to see. The commercial side is pleasing as we have repeat buyers for bulls. This year the QLD Gelbvieh sale was put off as we did not have enough numbers. If you are interested in bulls please go to my Sales page as I have some photos of bulls just started on feed -- if interested please contact me.
