Hamadra Droughtmaster stud was estabished in 1994 and is located 10km north of Bluff at "Wild Horse Creek". It is owned and operated by Andrew McKenzie and son Riley.
The property is approximately 8000 acres and is mostly blade ploughed buffel and brigalow country where we run 800 stud and commercial breeders to maximise our stud program choice and bull sale selection.
Before starting the stud the family tree goes back to having over 100 years of cattle breeding experience which I think keeps us balanced and focused to continue to breed a solid commercial base which we find helps our consistency.
