HISTORY OF MOGUL BRAHMAN STUD

Mogul Brahman Stud was established at Riverstone, near Sydney in 1959 and was subsequently relocated at several sites near Sydney. Foundation cattle were purchased from "Cherokee" with subsequent purchases from "Grampians" and "Tyagarah".

The stud moved to "Clarence Peak" near Maclean, NSW in 1980, a family property where commercial Brahman breeding had previously been the main enterprise.

It operated there very successfully for 35 years.

In January 2015, Mogul Brahman Stud relocated to its newly purchased property at 200 Fardons Lane, Yorklea, on the outskirts of Casino, the beef capital of NSW.

Mogul is known for innovation and is NSW's longest established Brahman stud.
