The Tannyfoil Brangus Stud, founded in 1998 by Gavin McKenzie and his parents Bevan & Denise, is based at “Tannyfoil”, Blackwater. The McKenzie’s run a large commercial herd of over 2000 breeders, the majority being red, on properties in the Blackwater, Alpha and Arcadia Valley districts. Progeny and extra purchased steers are fattened off at two and a half years of age for the Jap market. A strict breeding policy concentrates on fertility and weight for age. The stud’s role is to supply bulls for their own breeding program whilst a number are selected to sell each year. This year 11 of these bulls will be offered at the Classic Red Brangus sale.
