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.

Waylanbar Droughtmasters was established by Wayne and Lana in 2003 with the purchase of a Glenlands first calf heifer, located 33kms south of Emerald QLD where the stud is operated on 700 acres of heavy loam country and currently runs 70 stud breeders.

In 2020 Waylanbar J was established by Jesse, Tori & family as an affiliated stud alongside Waylanbar. Who then went on to purchase 2 properties alongside each other consisting of 2200 acres located within the Biloela & Jambin area to increase numbers within their own herd.


Our goals are to have a continuous stud line of consistent, well-tempered bulls to suit all conditions with the objective to sell across various Droughtmaster sales.

Ramardoo Droughtmasters is a small stud made up of 40 stud breeders where they run amongst my fathers at Hamadra Droughtmasters. 


My goal is to keep a strict eye on fertility and the standards of excellence I'm looking for. 


Having begun as a small stud in 2014, I firmly believe that by maintaining my unwavering focus on this endeavour, I will progressively achieve greater consistency and maximise profits with each passing year.
