The DSK Angus and the DSK Charolais breeding herd maintains larger framed, heavier muscled animals with exceptional feed conversion and paddock efficiency according to stud principals Chris Knox and Helen Alexander.

Based at “Borah Station”, 12km north of Rocky Glen on the Oxley Hwy west of Mullaley, the couple maintain a unique breeding outlook with the introduction of exclusively selected females and sires in Canada.

They have brought full Canadian embryos and semen back to implant and use in the DSK cows. 

“We have been following our own selection process for many years and we believe that this is keeping us unique from many other stud breeders in the country,” Mr Knox said.

“Pure out-cross genetics bred for distinctly Australian beef producers.”

And when it comes to carcase qualities, the stud is on a winning streak.

DSK has won all major carcase competitions along the eastern states including Sydney and Brisbane Royals, Rockhampton Beef, Dubbo Beef Spectacular and National Field Days grass fed, grain fed, and yield of saleable meat. Their Charolais have won the middleweight champion steer at Sydney Royal three years in a row as well as grand champion carcase and reserve champion carcase with an Angus steer. 

DSK Angus and Charolais will offer 80 bulls for at their 24th annual sale at the Gunnedah Saleyards at 1pm on August 17.

The Angus stud was formed in 1988 on local Calleen Angus blood and the purchase of Te Mania Panda E12 at the New England Angus breeders sale at Tamworth in 1989.

“The Panda female line has been the most successful by far in the DSK herd, winning major awards and breeding successfully down the generations,” Mr Knox said. 

DSK Charolais was formed in 1994 with the purchase of two heifers from the renowned Rosedale and Palgrove Charolais herds. These female lines have continued to be major contributors to the DSK Charolais cow herd.

”No compromise is ever made for soundness and breeding fertility along with maternal calving ease and milk,” he said. 

“Productive females that produce high yielding, easy finishing sons that will continue to breed the same attributes for the steer and heifer producer.”
