New Beginnings

July 13th, 2014 · No Comments

Its been a long while since the page has been updated. It does not mean that things have not been happening, to the contrary more like life has been so busy things like poor old websites become neglected.

We have changed the focus of our cattle herd to predominantly miniature cattle.  This is in response to what clients seem to want and also fits in with our own farm plan.  We have introduced white Galloway’s into our herd with the introduction of Lassalantra Beau- Black pointed white miniature Galloway bull.  We are also working at our own lines of commercial miniature Herefords  Whilst we continue to breed and preserve the traditional mini Herefords  we can also acknowledge the need for a little more size to better suit commercial purposes.  So we have been working at marginally increasing the size to approx two thirds of regular Hereford size and preserving the quiet nature and maintaining the  attributes that miniature cattle offer for small land holders.  We are also experimenting with developing miniature speckle park cattle- keep posted for further information and developments!

Our love for the placid, docile Jersey cows continues and as we can identify how perfect these girls are for hobby farmers as pets and house cows we will continue to offer heifers and cows for sale. Subject to availability.

We continue to have some miniature horses and ponies with foals (previous season) available for sale.- See sales pages for further information.

Travis’s business – Macedon Ranges Hen House has been gaining momentum and we now have achieved farmer market accreditation and attend the Riddells Creek and Woodend farmer markets.

Stephanie has completed Bachelor of Veterinary Science and is now a qualified veterinarian registered with Veterinary practitioners board of Victoria.  In due course we will be offering herd health and farm animal consultancy to our clients and as previously our clients enjoy after sales support and advice, particularly important to new farmers!

Well thats about it for now, keep warm and keep a look out for updates as I add photos and more information about the exciting developments at Macedon park farm 🙂
