NA Henderson Farms, East Gippsland, Vic
CHRIS and Beth, and Keith and Kirsty Cowan have brought six generations of family farming to Poltalloch at Tailem Bend, bordering Lake Alexandrina.
In 1985 Poltalloch made the switch from Shorthorn to Angus, and are now running 600 Angus breeders.
They were very impressed by the genetic progress they received with the Angus herd.
We have been buying bulls at Te Mania Angus and moved to join Team Te Mania in 2018, due to the better option of leasing bulls than buying them. The option to use the latest Te Mania Angus semen, before it hits the market, gives us the progeny a head start over the rest of the market and at very reduced price.
We have been selling to Rangers Valley for a couple of years and anticipate this partnership will keep building.
The Cowans (Chris is the fifth generation and son Keith the sixth) also run a crossbred enterprise based on a flock of Dohne ewes.
