Brahman Stud Facelift
We are proud to introduce our NEW stud name and logo!
Andrew & Anna McCamley are delighted to introduce 2AM Brahmans, the new entity and designation for their Brahman Stud enterprise (previously Lancefield A). This change of name will allow a more direct industry identification of the personal influences towards seedstock breeding that we employ in our cattle business, and it will also enable a suitable pathway for our sons Brock and Jarod to establish and grow their involvement in the beef cattle industry under the 2AM banner.
Home base is the MacKenzie River property ‘Barwon Park’, South of Middlemount, while ‘Jaydena’, Capella and ‘Parker Creek’, Dingo are also utilised in the breeding and finishing operation. 500 Grey Brahman and 150 Red Brahman cows comprise the registered Stud herd, with generations of proven performance Lancefield bloodlines backing the genetics. Additionally, 1,200 commercial breeders are run, supplying approximately 500 milk and 2 tooth steers annually into the E.U. market, which generally dress an average of 320kg. Importantly, our home bred bulls are used extensively in the commercial herd which allows us to continually monitor all aspects of performance such as virility, fertility, weight for age, carcass quality and yield, as well as premium market suitability of progeny.
The 2AM Stud will undertake to present auction sale lines of bulls at the Lancefield Invitation Sale, Rockhampton; Clermont Beef Bull Sale; and Cloncurry Premier Beef Leaders Sale annually, while also continuing to supply approximately 100 paddock bulls to cattle producers from Central and Northern Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Our breeding herds (stud and commercial) are fertility focused, with cows calving annually (no exceptions). We have collected a large volume of data for Scrotal Size and Days to Calving which will soon furnish Group Breedplan EBV’s for those criteria, and we have raw data dam breeding history information available.
