Gyranda Genetics prove their worth

on 20th February 2014

Gyranda on ABC Landline This Sunday

In the leadup to Christmas the ABC Landline team paid us a visit as part of a story on Poll gene testing.  At the time we had three young lads here on work experience who thought the whole process was quite entertaining, although they remained quite camera shy thoughout.  Keep an eye out for the story this Sunday 16th March at 12 noon on ABC. 

Gyranda steers shine in Biggenden:

Burnett Livestock and Realty’s 2014 All Breeds Steer Sale conducted at Biggeneden on Thursday 16th February attracted a total of 1,996 head.  Plenty of very good steers were yarded but with the dry weather persisting the market continued its downward trend. Gyranda proudly took out the Santa Gertrudis class with a pen of Santa Gertrudis No2 steers with milk and two teeth.

With the champion pen of Santa steers are Lance Whitaker, Burnett Livestock & Reality, Graeme Acton, Acton Land & Cattle Company, Rockhampton (judge), Peter Mahony, Gyranda, and Bill Dunlop, General Manager, Santa Gertrudis Australia. (Pic courtesy: Burnett Livestock & Reality)
