Brookwood Angus was established in winter 2012 with the complete purchase of LYNMAR ANGUS STUD females owned by Kerry Nankervis from Hawkes Bay. Kerry only sought the very best genetics he could find and this was a great start for us with a number of very high quality females in his herd.
We have since purchased Mixed Aged females from the dispersal of GOLDWYN ANGUS owned by Bruce Alexander from Timaru. These proven cows have great longievity with ages out to 13 years and all cows having never missed a calving. They are medium framed, very correct and have great temperament.
Another great opportunity arose when we were able to purchase a number of females from Peter Matthews' OTOKA ANGUS STUD dispersal, here in Central Hawkes Bay. Peters' extensive history of breeding has resulted in these females being very suitable for todays requirements. They are very correct, well boned and above average framed. They have real presence and are very easy doing.
We are very excited at how similar the cows are from the 3 studs and feel they are typical of the type of animal we would have liked to been breeding had we bred them ourselves.
A significant AI and embryo program has been running at Brookwood with over 60% of this years cows in calf to AI.
Below is Brookwoods first registered calf H201 as a yearling.
He is a very smooth and correct bull with an absolutely superb hind quarter. He is a grandson of Waiterenui Theo and Highlander of Stern and Great Grandson of Turihaua Crumble.
