John & Nerida Allen

John & Nerida Allen, with sons Angus and Sam, live at “Toorali” near Murgon in the South Burnett. In 2004 they sourced 100 commercial “Doonside” red brangus heifers, and added further lines of females from Duarran, Mutdawarrah, and Beannacht brangus herds.
Bulls have been predominantly selected from “Doonside” and “Redline” as well as from A.I. bulls (eg Cadence of Brinks, G.K. Extra Flash, Fairy Springs Dazzler, and Willandra Erik). Standout home bred sires include Mawson Digger and Mawson Loyal.
Mawson Brangus targets the 50/50 Brahman/Angus type with a focus on breeding for docility, fertility, weight-for-age, and longevity in a moderate-framed package.
Sale bulls are prepared for sale on pasture with access to oat crop and silage, and are finished with a small amount of grain.
