bet you'd get a nice cross on strait herefordangusbreederms":1z5obyqh said:This is what I found on the breed: The Droughtmaster breed was developed in the early 1920s, by commercial cattlemen specifically for Australia's inhospitable environment. Combining the benefits offered by Bos taurus (such as Shorthorns, Herefords and Shorthorn-Devon cross) & Bos indicus (Zebus) genetics in one breed, gave the Droughtmaster a distinct advantage over many other breeds.
I would like to see him used on some english bred cattle...
good saying, agree 100% ;-)marimus":1uxd6tqv said:Around here they say Cows for your country, bulls for your market. The Charbray cows do well here, they have a good parasite resistance and don't suffer in the heat. They also get up and moving to browse over the entire paddock.
The Droughmaster Charbray cross provides progeny that are easy finishing, and a carcass that the market demands.
maybe..but i was thinking over here, not over yonder ;-)Keren":2m1zxmys said:lol British Bred cows will just lay down and die in marimus' environment

Look a bit like what you get when you cross a Santa with a Hereford, I have some Santa/Droughtmaster cross females that I've joined to South devon and Brahman. Will get a straight coloured animal.
Droughtmasters are one of the most popular breeds in Northern Australia behind the Brahman in popularity.
Nice looking bull. Most Droughtmasters look like this bloke.
