AGA AGM and FIELD DAY MAY 2017

Some Queensland members attended the comprehensive Gelbvieh Field Day, very kindly hosted by Geoff and Cass Steinbeck and their family at ‘Gowan Brae’ Dungowan Road, 30 km east of Tamworth NSW, on Saturday 13 May 2017.

The Field Day program covered the Benefits of Breedplan Recording for Stud and Commercial Enterprises, some Profit Based Scenarios of adding Gelbvieh and Balancer to breeding programs for targeting Woolworths and Coles markets and the Feeder Steer market; and Cross Breeding for maximum Marbling and Meat Yield.

An evening dinner at McNevins Tamworth Motel Nemingha, was attended by Gelbvieh members from five states and enjoyed by all. The silent semen auction organised by Malcolm King and the Gelbvieh Youth Group raised significant funds for the Australian Gelbvieh Association Inc.

On Sunday 14th May 2017 the Gelbvieh AGM was held at McNevins along with an Open Forum. These meetings were followed by a closed Council meeting where the Councillors elected their Executive Committee.

VALE TERRY O’HALLORAN


Terrence Matthew “Terry” O’Halloran
7 November 1942 - 21 November 2015


It was with great sadness we learned on Sunday 22 November of Terry O’Halloran’s passing on the previous night. While talking with Terry earlier on the Saturday, some members thanked him for what he had done for the Gelbvieh breed. Terry was a tremendous supporter of and contributor to the Qld. Branch meetings, activities and sales. He was a great committee person giving guidance and providing honest opinions.

Terry, a former Vice President of the Qld Branch, and his wife Shirley promoted the Gelbvieh breed at every opportunity, participating at the Agrow Field Days at Emerald, other Field days; and Queensland and National Sales. They built up a loyal client following and went “the extra mile” in friendship, loyalty and hard work in their involvement with Gelbvieh.

Terry was laid to rest on 4 December 2015 after a moving farewell at St Patrick’s Catholic Church, Allora Q. He will be long remembered and greatly missed by all Qld Branch members.


QLD AGM & GM NOVEMBER 2015

Qld Branch Meeting Day and social get together on Saturday 21 November, started at Terry and Shilrey O’Halloran’s, Terley Gelbvieh Stud, at Clifton. They graciously hosted lunch, with members contributing eats. Members appreciated Terry’s effort in assembling stock for viewing despite his ill health and we thank them for their hospitality. Carole Johns from the AGA at Armidale attended and members took the opportunity to make her acquaintance.

Enroute to Val and Ian Rogers’ Granite Gold Stud at The Summit for the AGM and GM, we visited interesting Granite Belt tourist venues. Members sampled apple juice in many combinations; and lovely cheeses and wines. Thanks to Val and Ian for the tour of their property paddocks and the Gelbvieh herd; and the refreshments and nibbles during the meetings. The day ended with dinner at the Chinese Restaurant in Stanthorpe. Thanks to the Qld Secretary Julie Nixon for arranging a great day.
