Conjola Hill Limousins, located on the South Coast of NSW, was commenced in 2000 when we purchased our first Limousin stud cow and calf from Bob Forsyth of Gladstone stud. We chose the Limousin breed because we wanted a moderate size breed of cattle who would have minimum calving problems and who would be able to forage well, particularly in winter.
Our foundation cows where all French pure and included Gladstone Helena and Gladstone Griselda who were daughters of Benmore Katherine, one of the first imports to Australia via New Zealand. We pride ourselves on having quite a few selected descendents of these old girls. Gladstone Helena was sold this year when she was almost 20 year old, she was an excellent example of the breed.
We also purchased three Home Station heifers when that stud was dispersed, one cow and two heifers at the Kensal dispersal sale and one cow at the Willow Park female sale. Our original aim was to breed only French pure cattle, however as a result of the commercial market we have decided to breed "a few black" Limousins as well.
We have used two Willow Park bulls on our property and both of these bulls, particularly Willow Park Zazzman, have both added superb muscling and structure to our herd. Our cattle are healthy, extremely docile and very easily moved from paddock to paddock. To further improve the genetic makeup of our herd we are using artificial insemination to enhance the sought after traits of muscle, milk, maternal instinct, docility, low birthweights/calving ease and adequate fat cover.
Conjola Hill Limousin Stud is a member of the Limousin Assurance Program, being pedigree registered, docility scored, docility warranted and soundness warranted. The protoporphyia status of our herd is either Proto normal (PN) or Proto free (PF) by pedigree and the property is located in a Johne's protected Zone of New South Wales.
