Welcome to the Boonaroo web site. Boonaroo is a 3650 acre Angus beef and prime lamb producing property in South West Victoria.
In February each year we auction our most elite Angus bulls in an on property sale. The balance of the bulls get sold in the paddock throughout the year.
We also breed and sell White Suffolk Rams which we use as terminal sires over our commercial ewes. We sell our White Suffolk Rams from October each year
Our commercial ewe flock, has the set percentage of 50% Corriedale, 12.5% East Fresian, 12.5% Border Leicester & 25% White Suffolk, which is a high fertility, milking flock, with 27-30 micron heavy cutting wool, lambing in June/July, producing export weight sucker lambs in November/ December. Boonaroo also breeds and sells Maternal Rams that produce ewes of this type. Every year we sell about 600 ewe lambs on Auctions Plus, in 2021 the ewe lambs will be sold in January.
2020 sees Boonaroo Angus position itself as a source of new genetics to the commercial industry. Extensive use of New Zealand genetics over the years, sees our cow families with multiple generations of kiwi bulls from proven grass fed operations in their pedigrees, bulls by Merchiston Stoker, and Steakhouse and the famous Atahua Freedom will be for sale in the 2020 sale. Australian bulls are also used, this year, TeMania Kasbah K338 ($24000) and TeMania Lackey L27 ($30000), Anvil Kansas K324, and Jarrobee Bartel K129 will have sons available. This is another group of bulls even from top to bottom, great muscling with fat cover and body depth. The bulls have to display docility and outstanding structure to make the sale.
