Our bulls suit discerning stud and commercial operations with an eye for good temperament, structural soundness, top quality genetics and EBVs with a focus on growth. We continue to select the best available natural and AI stud sires to improve our genetics year on year and join them to complementary females. Our bulls are offered as two-year-olds at our on-property sale on the 2nd Wednesday in March every year. But don't take our word for it, come and see them for yourselves.
The stud was founded with the purchase of seven cows and eight calves from Dunoon.
Then in May 2002 and with a vision to the future, Barry and Topsy purchased the promising stud sire Kaludah Monopoly for $24,000
at the Wodonga National Show and Sale. It was to be a pivotal point in the fledgling stud’s history and the sire’s last natural son sold at the 2011 sale.
His sons returned at auction a grand total of $254,000.
ABOUT OUR STUD
Newcomen Herefords was founded by Barry and Topsy Newcomen at their picturesque Ensay property in December 2001.
It was an extension to their successful commercial enterprise which, to this day, continues to produce weaner calves among the tops at the prestigious Mountain Weaner Calf Sales at Ensay.
Starting out as a stock agent working at AML&F in Melbourne, Barry returned to his hometown of Ensay and bought 442 acres in partnership with his brother Evan in 1959. They added acreage over the years and teamed successfully for 34 years, trading as BC & EO Newcomen to establish one of the best commercial herds in the area and even now, farming independently, the brothers continue to provide regular toppers of the market.Find out More
