The GK Herd

The GK cowherd is a select group built around foundation females purchased through Australian dispersal sales, combined with females resulting from imported Canadian embryos and Canadian donor dams we have selected ourselves. We place great emphasis on udders, feet, temperament and the ability for a female to calve easily, raise her calf well with no creep feeding and go back into calf under natural Queensland conditions.

Promoting our Cattle

We believe in using the show ring as a shop window for our product and we believe in doing it right. Some breeders assume that because our show team is turned out professionally, that our entire cow herd is spoilt and doesn’t have to work. This is most certainly not the case. Because our operation is run under limited land space we have absolutely no room for poor performers, or for cows to have a second chance. No exceptions, Sydney Champion or not.


(GK Q05)

Ruba Q5 is one of the first Assassin 624D daughters to come into production in Australia.

This impressive Ruba G40 daughter hits the mark at where we want our females to be. High capacity, easy doing females with plenty of milk and udder quality.

Q5 was named Grand Champion Red Angus female at the 2022 Brisbane Royal Exhibition. She will enter our donor pen in 2023 and we hope to offer embryos in Power of Red IX in September.

GK Red Platinum Ruba P26 is an outstanding young daughter of 2017 Urquhart trophy winner, Ruba G40, and is sired by Red Double B Bullseye 1B.

P26 was Supreme Exhibit at the 2020 Angus Youth Roundup for Brooke Iseppi, following her Junior Championship at the 2019 Brisbane Ekka at 10 months of age. She was turned out for the year in 2020 after Roundup in January due to Covid-19 lockdown, and came into production with a beautiful udder.

P26 was named Grand Champion Red Angus Female at Rockhampton’s Beef 2021 and stood top four in the Supreme female. We will have embryo calves hitting the ground by Red U2 Reckoning and Red MRLA Respect 42G.

GK Red Tinsel 23 J18

This magnificent daughter of GK Federer was named Junior Champion heifer at the 2015 Sydney Royal Easter Show and Champion Cow at the 2016 Angus Youth Roundup.

The Tinsel cow family originates from Brylor Ranch in Canada.

J28 is another feminine, high capacity Federer two-year-old whose dam X9 was one of our very best old cows. Cherok X9 was imported from Brylor as an embryo and is a member of the well-known Brylor Cherok cow family.

GK Red Ruba 26 G40

(GK G40)

Ruba G40 was named best Red Angus Exhibit and Supreme Beef Female at the 2015 Sydney Royal Easter Show and the 2017 Sydney Royal Show. This is the only time the same female has won this award twice. Ruba was also the Urquhart Trophy winner for Supreme Beef Animal at the 2017 Sydney Royal Show.

G40’s progeny have averaged over $10,000 for GK, all selling as yearlings.

This beautiful, easy keeping, deep bodied, Mulberry daughter was one of the last daughters we put on the ground out of the fantastic old Ms Ruba 7H cow.

G40’s first calf Kody K25, topped the yearling bulls at the Inaugural Power of Red Sale in 2015 for $8000.

Simmental Females

Alliance Masterpiece J02 (P) (ET)


J2 was purchased in 2015 as a bred heifer from the Alliance partnership, who imported her as an embryo from Willie Altenburg’s Altenburg Super Baldy Ranch in Colorado.

She is a superb uddered daughter of Canadian Sire Spring Creek Lotto 52Y. Her dam is the ASR Little Molly cow, making J2 a complete outcross to most Australian Simmental genetics.

We have some magnificent daughters and grand daughters of Masterpiece retained in the GK herd.

Hobbs Livestock Keepsake H006 (P)


Hobbs Livestock Keepsake H006 (P) aka “Honey”, was the first foundation female purchased for our Red Simmental program in August 2013. She is the result of an imported Lewis Farms embryo from Alberta in Canada and has turned out to be a magnificent cow, with an absolutely fantastic temperament.

Her first calf GK Que Sera was named Grand Champion Bull and Best Simmental Exhibit at the 2015 Sydney Royal Easter Show and sold to Woonallee Simmentals at thirteen months of age. We look forward to embryo calves out of “Honey” sired by HRC Firepower arriving in Spring 2015.

Honey’s first 3 progeny have averaged $12,000. We have a daughter and grand daughter retained in the GK herd.
