Stage 5 and 6 Agriculture Beef Cattle Excursion

Stage 5 and 6 Agriculture Beef Cattle Excursion

5 December 2017

On Thursday 23 November Macquarie Agriculture students visited the Dubbo Regional Livestock Markets to watch a Prime Cattle sale and explore the cattle facilities, including the new extension.

They had a talk from stock and station agent Justin Sanderson, manager of Richardson & Sinclair, Warren during our visit who briefed them on the latest trends of cattle prices and markets.

The students then travelled to Peak Hill to visit Hollywood Angus Stud. Lyn & Ian Frecklington and Nathan Leach talked to the group about the history, success and breeding programs of the operation. Students even had an opportunity to lead some of Hollywood's show cattle. They then enjoyed a delicious BBQ lunch provided by Ian & Lyn. Thank you Lyn & Ian for your generous hospitality.​
