IT’S THE PERFECT CLIMATE FOR PARAWANGA DROUGHTMASTERS
Karen, Ayla and Rob Scanlan have been breeding droughtmaster cattle on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, since 1990. We currently run 3 stud herds on 1300 acres at Cooroy, Sunshine Coast and also Flaggy Rock, Central Qld coast. Our Central Qld coastal block at Flaggy Rock has a high rainfall averaging around 80-100 inches annually and a tropical warmth most of the year but also has long periods of no rain and dry, dusty conditions as well as some frosty mornings in winter. Our coastal Mary Valley climate has a temperature range of –2 to 40 degreesC and 20 to 120 inches of rain annually.
We have selected for all the best Bos Indicus attributes of survival in heat, drought, flies and ticks and all the best Bos Taurus attributes of good temperament, fertility, milking and muscling combined into the one 50/50 package.
