Talooby, Holbrook NSW
Talooby is a mixed sheep and beef cattle farm, we run approx 10,000 sheep, mostly Merino, and 900 Angus cattle. Our sheep enterprise is wool and prime lambs.
We shear wethers in late Oct, XB ewes and sale Merinos in late Dec and Mer ewes in March. We lamb our prime lamb ewes in July and Merinos in August. Our cows calve in August / September. We often have a trial in progress on the farm - eg this year we put remote monitoring collars on our calving heifers. Very keen to explain to visitors about the production cycle and the way animals "think". We have three donkeys(!) which are are hit with visitors and chooks and farm dogs.
