Each year we sell bulls both by private paddock sales and through the auction system - at RBWS at CQLX Saleyards at Gracemere in October & at the Gold City sale at Dalrymple Saleyards at Charters Towers in early November. Our bulls are grass raised/paddock reared and are selected for structural soundness, fertility, good quiet temperament and strong brahman characteristics.

Our pen of ten Batandra red cows and calves were placed second in a class of five at the 2015 ABBA sale.
Batandra has been selling continuously at Brahman Week since 1979 – this will be our 40th year at Rockhampton Brahman Week Sale. Photos of our 2018 sale bulls are as follows.
