Breeder herd recording leads to more confident decisions

David Andersen is a beef producer on the Atherton Tableland in far north Queensland where he runs 120 Brangus cows on 90 hectares. David’s goal in managing his property is, “As a small operator I want to try and have my farm and my cows running as efficiently as possible and have the best outcome while looking after the farm. It is a very good farm as it was an ex-dairy farm. It has been very well maintained over many years and I’m continuing on looking after it.”

David describes himself as having “a keen interest in beef cattle and I like to learn as much as I can. I am trying to keep an open mind and try different techniques that are keeping up to date with the latest teachings.” He has seen much change in the industry and uses FutureBeef as a tool to help him stay informed.
