Kamawa Santa Gertrudis Stud specialise in producing quality stud Santa Gertrudis cattle. Our Santa Gertrudis calves are known for being early maturing, thick, muscly cattle. Our cattle are predominantly polled, to cater to domestic market producers and cross breeders of mainly British breed cattle.
To this end Kamawa Santa Gertrudis Stud spare no expense in procuring top polled sires, including Kelly Wallah 347 (Breedplan trait leader for growth) bulls from Rosevale Stud including Chieftain T73. (Breedplan trait leader for eye muscle area), Rosevale Rippon W543, and Yarrawonga Lancer and in recent years Kuloomba 97 and Kamawa Centurion.
In 2009 we added several more quality cattle to our stud breeding plan including Talgai DJ a very quiet dark polled sire and Macaire Yankee another thick muscly good temperament poll sire. In 2011 we also added Macaire Nevada by Kamawa Nevada to continue our growthy muscly type cattle.
To set our type of quality stud cattle, two young home bread sires, Kamawa Keanu by Rosevale Chieftain and Kamawa Lobo by Yarrawonga Lancer, have been used extensively in the herd breeding plan since 2002. These sires displayed the quiet temperament Kamawa is known for, together with the fertility, muscle and high growth we wish to maintain.
Keanu who won a first place ribbon at Sydney, is represented by 45 retained females in the Stud, two of which are displayed on this page, and another, show heifer Paris is on the Stud Heifer & Cows page.
Kuloomba 97 was introduced to the breeding plan in 2006. His calves are inheriting his totally placid temperament and some of his size. In 2008 we retained an outstanding poll Sire by Kamawa Keanu. He is Kamawa Centurion and is named for his maternal grand sire Big Sur Centurion. His dam Big Sur BH44 is a significant cow in the Santa Gertrudis Breed and we are using this top son of hers, Centurion, to spread her top genetics through the Kamawa herd. Centurion has proved to be a huge growth sire, like himself, and his antecedents.
Denngal Harold H5, a new Stud sire was purchased in 2014. He is dark coated, a very muscly bull with good temperament and sheath. He has great length which he is putting into his calves. We have some outstanding bull calves by him the pick of which we may sell at Santa Central and Tamworth.
