Stud Description

David, Rosemary and Michael Purnell and family operate the Calioran Droughtmaster Stud, located in the Alton Downs district, outside Rockhampton.
The prefix was founded in 2000 with the purchase of 40 PTIC heifers at the Cungelella Swan Female Sale.
This initial outlay of $166,000 formed the nucleus of the herd that now numbers 150 registered females on the 800ha holding, ‘Calioran’ 30klms north/northwest of the city of Rockhampton. The property boasts 5klm frontage to the Fitzroy River and has access to and embraces irrigation from that source.
Foundation sire was the $40,000 Swan Ironman, the reserve senior champion of Beef 2000. At 32 months he weighed 970kg and had an EMA of 137cm sq and was purchased at the final Cungelella Swan Sale in 2000.
