Quality bulls at reasonable prices
Each season our bulls are selected from our “zero tolerance” pregnancy tested elite female herd. Chosen for both their visual characteristics and performance traits. From the experience of being commercial producers and winning awards for our product in the saleyards, we understand the importance of not only performance (weight for age) but also how important the cattle’s temperament is for our clients. In saying that, the knife is always handy when selecting our bulls.
When the Barrett’s resurrected Konjuli in 2008 they started by purchasing several bulls from Strathfield Droughtmasters. Sean’s grandfather was good friends with Strathfield founder Noel Perry and Sean attended Ag College with Noel’s son Shane so “Strathfield was our first choice when looking for bulls to start the stud again” said Sean.
“With parasite resistance, drought tolerance and good fertility, the Strathfield bulls enhanced our herd.” Evonne added.
The herd on the Woolooga property had been closed since the 1980’s and females had been joined to the bulls bred by the family. In the past several years Sean and Evonne have concentrated on adding new genetics to compliment the breeding herd.
Today’s cattle are the result of the historical excellence from the past as well the new genetics which have been introduced in recent times.
All our current registered sires are used in our Stud and Commercial herd. Some of our bulls for sale are by these sires.

ALL OUR HERD
The Konjuli breeder herd has not been dipped since 2008 with natural selection for buffalo fly resistance as well. Grazing takes place in undulating country and also hilly country on our property. The breeders forage on predominantly black spear grass pastures and have access to dry Phosphorus licks to ensure good herd health during regular dry periods. The breeders are “Control Mated” and annually pregnancy tested and cows that did not produce a weaner after testing are removed.
