Cattle in the Holding Yard

The Cattle wander 3,500 acres and at Muster Time, three times a year, are rounded up by the team and kept in Holding yards, until processed.

The Brahman (named for the sacred cow of Hinduism) or Brahma is a breed of Zebu cattle (Bos primigenius indicus), later exported from India to the rest of the world. The main breed was the Kankrej, called Guzerat in Brazil. Also used were the Nelore or Ongole and the Gir or Gyr.

Brahman are ideally suited to Australian conditions.
