KAROONDA: Karoonda Hereford stud principals Paul Sykes and Lynton and Campbell Hill, with commercial Hereford breeder, Craig Moore, Jack River. This was the second time Mr Moore had visited Karoonda stud, at Gelantipy. Lynton Hill said the focus of the stud was on temperament, muscle and aesthetics. Paul Sykes said he had recently brought polled cow families from River Perry, Bowen and Braybrook into the herd, which along with Mawarra Heritage, had delivered foundation polled genetics into their stud breeding program. "The cows are the backbone and depth of the herd, the bulls are the product," Mr Sykes said.
