ALC Brahmans commenced in 2011 with Alf and Louise Collins in partnership with Alf’s mother Wendy Collins at “Gundaroo”, Nebo Queensland under the company name of Collins Cattle Co. Alf and Louise’s children Heath, Tom and Ellie play an integral part in the day-to-day operations and property improvements.
The ALC herd was selected out of the family partnership herd “CBV” which Alf worked in conjunction with his parents for 13 years, and then with his wife Louise, took over as General Manager from 2000 to 2011.
The focus during this time and into the future is breeding adapted, extremely fertile, low cost of production cattle to supply genetics that make a difference to profit margins for commercial cattle producer’s globally. Sustainable pasture, soil health and people are also major focuses for ALC.
The stud herd is run on “Gundaroo Station” near Nebo, Central Queensland. Herd bulls are produced off “Tondara Station” near Collinsville in North Queensland. Collins Cattle Co also runs a commercial operation at “Brides Creek” near Blackall, Western Queensland.
