ASCOT NEIMEN BRAFORDS ARE FOUNDATION STUDS WITH 50 YEARS BREEDING HISTORY SPANNING THREE GENERATIONS IN CENTRAL QUEENSLAND.
Principals Graham and Jill Galloway of ‘Ascot’ and Dan and Pip Galloway of ‘Glenlea’ run the studs and an EU accredited commercial operation across four properties near Banana,
grazing native pastures in broad leaf ironbark country to improved buffel pastures in brigalow country.
Our ambition is to breed beefy polled Brafords able to survive and thrive anywhere.
OUR BULLS ARE VERSATILE, PADDOCK READY AND WILL BOOST ANY BEEF ENTERPRISE.
They are well mannered, reared and raised off grass, and as required seasonally they perform strongly in feedlot conditions.
Tailored DNA and performance testing mean you can buy with confidence all year round. Inspections are welcome any time.
New genetics are introduced to the breeding program each year to produce a wide-variety of registered and powerful herd bulls for our clients. Ascot Neimen auctions up to 50 bulls on-property at ‘Ascot’ each September, which makes it Australia’s largest single-vendor Braford sale.
Top quality sires are also handpicked for the AI centre regularly, used in our maiden heifer AI program, and straws are available for purchase in Australia and eligible for South America and South Africa.
THE GALLOWAYS STARTED BREEDING BRAFORDS IN 1965 AND HAVE BEEN PROUDLY FLYING THE BRAFORD FLAG AT STUD AND PRIME CATTLE SHOWS SINCE 1971.
We are immensely proud of the animals we select and prepare for the show ring and carcase competitions, and of the broad ribbons they bring home. Strategically it allows us to benchmark the Brafords’ performance against other breeds, plus Graham just loves showing! We are continuing a family tradition that dates back to his grandfather J.J. Galloway who first exhibited Cootharaba Herefords at the Royal Queensland Show in 1928.
We strongly believe that Brafords are the right choice because of their resilience in the hard times and their productivity in the good times. In an industry where the environmental factors are unpredictable and the commercial goal posts are constantly changing – Braford steers consistently meet the premium EU market and newly established Grasslands.
