Kamawa Santa Gertrudis Stud
quality Santa Gertrudis cattle stud and commercial bulls, & heifers at moderate prices
Kamawa Santa Gertrudis Stud specialises in producing early maturing, thick, muscly cattle, predominantly polled.
RECENT GREAT RESULTS Kamawa bulls have been achieving outstanding growth and weight gain- epitomised by Toledo S43 – recently sold to the McDonald family of Goondiwindi. He was raised on good coastal pasture with only a small supplement and weighed 401kg at 11months, 550kg at 14 months and 720kg when sold at 18months. He is a perfect carcase carrying meat and fat right along his back and down his hind quarter with large testicles and top Santa type and temperament. His life weight gain is 1.33kg per day.
THE KAMAWA TYPE
Since 1989, when Kamawa was registered as a Santa Gertrudis Stud. We have been establishing our type of polled Santa Gertrudis cattle.
After many generations, we have achieved a very quiet, docile nature – making Kamawa cattle very easy to handle. Our type is a more thick, earlier maturing type , retaining breed character in our polled cattle – that Santa appearance and head, with large ears.
The Coastal environment with its exposure to ticks and flies, biting midges, and other insects, 3 day sickness and the other coastal related ailments – all have gone to toughen up the Kamawa type. Consequently, they do very well in inland Australia – and move easily onto coastal properties.
A 16 month old bull we recently sent up to Klaus Cazzonelli at Malanda North Queensland is a lovely sirey type weighing 640Kg at that age, off pasture. He moved in to his new herd with cool confidence and is a standout in the herd for his size and growth- a proud young polled Sire with good breed character, neat sheath and totally placid nature .
