WHEN visiting friends who lived in the area, John Langley said he always thought South Gippsland “looked like the Garden of Eden”.
Eventually, John decided the promise of consistent rain was too good to pass up on, relocating his Hereford stud from Hay in New South Wales to Inverloch in 1978, and establishing the South Kolora Hereford stud.
John and his farm manager Scott Andersen will be showcasing the great genetics they have developed at their open day on Saturday, February 1.
On display will be one of the stud’s most successful bulls, five-and-a-half-year-old South Kolora Cadbury, which has well over 100 calves on the ground currently.
As well as South Kolora Cadbury, 14 bulls at 15 to 16 months, and a pair of two-year-olds will be on display and up for sale on the open day.
South Kolora’s entire drop of heifers from 2018 will also be on display to have a look at.
John and Scott say they are keen to showcase what they have got to prospective buyers, and also show off their farm to those interested in fattening bullocks with them.
