Jeff a wealth of knowledge

Central and North Rural Weekly - - OPINION -

JEFF Frank has a cool half-a-cen­tury of ex­pe­ri­ence when it comes to breed­ing bran­gus cat­tle.

In his 50 years in the in­dus­try, the Monto man from Pun­cha­gin Bran­gus, has watched the breed con­tinue to de­velop.

“It’s good to see the breed in­creas­ing in num­bers,” he said.

“In the ’70s and ’80s it was a strug­gle to get a mar­ket for our cat­tle.

“It has cer­tainly changed in the last 20 years.”

Mr Frank will take six bulls to the Roma sale, and will also take cat­tle to the next na­tional bran­gus sale in Rock­hamp­ton.

“When you don’t breed a lot of bulls, it’s good to have multi-ven­dor sales to pro­mote your studs,” he said.
