Our Golden Drop family originated from the renowned Broughton Park stud from South Australia. Until its sale to the Manchees of Yamburgan, this stud had the highest indexing herd in Australia.
The Golden Drop cows at Broughton Park came originally from the Valley Vista dispersal in 1973. There the Trengoves selected the Golden Drops as the best family there. They then bought all three lots, equalling the Australian record for a female at the time and also paying the sale’s top price for an unjoined heifer. The Golden Drops bred very well for the Trengoves and became one of the best families at Broughton Park.
We were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase 4 Golden Drop females from Broughton Park. These animals trace back to 2 of the 3 Valley Vista lines.
They have bred very well for us and we have joined some of them to the Yamburgan bulls through A.I. this year.
