Why Trifecta

Proven in all climatic conditions

Trifecta females have seen it all, thriving in all seasons on various country, from heavy buffel at Taroom to mulga at Bollon and the desert tablelands near Aramac. We back their offspring to do the same.

Focused on Fertility

We expect high conception rates from our females and have a strong ‘no second chances’ mentality in order to keep fertility at a maximum.

Temperament is key

We are a family owned and operated enterprise, therefore temperament is a cornerstone for all cattle in our operation.

Three Charbray gene pools

Trifecta progeny are drawn from three strong female breeding herds offering an extensive range of genetic superpower.

The Trifecta Tale

Trifecta Charbrays was born after a deep running passion for the breed united Bryce and Lucy Moore in more ways than one. From their first introduction the pair realised they’d each met someone with a love for Charbrays rivalling their own. In line with the old catchphrase “if you can’t beat them, join them,” Bryce and Lucy teamed up, turning their prior knowledge and experience towards launching a Charbray seedstock operation in 2017. Bryce was raised in the red buffel and mulga country north of Bollon, South West Queensland. A fifth generation cattleman, Bryce saw Charbray’s longevity and marketability first hand where frequent dry spells often forced the family’s females onto a 100 per cent mulga diet until the season broke.

 

Despite these challenges the cattle survived and thrived, achieving at least 80 per cent conception rates through some of the worst joining conditions. More calves ready for sale at weaning and more cows returning to the paddock- Charbrays were the answer for the west.

 

Bryce started sourcing small mobs of Charbray cows himself from the age of 14 and purchased his first Charbray sire at 18. He fondly remembers his first Charbray breeder, Custard, creatively named for her colouring.Bryce’s cows were run alongside his parents’ Carbene Grazing Charbray herd. The rotation of Charbray sires allowed Bryce to grow his numbers and establish the third branch of the Trifecta tree.

Bryce and Lucy were afforded the opportunity to purchase the entire Carbene Grazing herd in 2017. Lucy (nee Ziesemer) grew up in the renowned Taroom buffel country where her family started producing generation bred Charbrays more than 20 years ago. The Ziesemer family acquired their original herd of 300 Charolais cows from a stud dispersal sale and began researching Bos Indicus breeds for use over the Charolais, chasing highly sought after hybrid vigour. They invested in high quality red Brahman genetics and introduced generation bred Charbray sires to their F1 female herd, resulting in a long history of breeding top class generation bred Charbrays.

 

This focus on generational breeding has led to a high level of consistency in both operations over the years, resulting in accolades in show competitions such as Beef Week as well as the annual return of repeat buyers. Bryce and Lucy believe Charbrays are the future of the Australian beef industry, being adaptable, growthy, high yielding and easy doing cattle.

 

Blessed with experience and a combined 50 years’ worth of leading Charbray genetics passed down from previous generations, the couple chose ‘Trifecta’ in testament to the work done before them. Three families, three Charbray gene pools.

  • “We at Trifecta have a firm belief in the future of generation bred Charbray cattle. We feel the breed has a mountain of opportunity to offer the Australian beef cattle market and enjoy Charbray’s versatility and ability to suit the goals of most cattle breeders.”

    “We pride ourselves on producing even, consistent lines of bulls for our clients that will stand up and perform across the country. Our bulls offer strong bone and thickness with length, softness and volume to support their place as real players in beef production. Placid, even temperaments are a cornerstone of our operation and we work by the saying ‘keep the scalpel sharp’” – Bryce and Lucy Moore.

     

    Trifecta Charbrays have sold bulls into all parts of Queensland and take great confidence in having repeat clients from some of the driest areas of the state.

     

    Main points of sale are through paddock sales, the National Charbray Sale and the February All Breeds sale. All bulls are inoculated with 3 Day, 3 germ blood, Pestiguard, 7-in-1 and Vibrio vaccines. They are also semen tested by a registered vet.

     

    “We believe in investing in high quality, proven Charbray genetics as our families have done for a combined 50 years, and feel this is our best guarantee to clients that Trifecta Charbrays is here for the long haul”.

    Trifecta Charbrays

    FAB 2024… describes itself perfectly!

    It was a milestone day for us at Trifecta. We reached a long held goal to deliver a breed topping sire to the open market.
    Trifecta Superior (P) was that for us today, climbing to $24,000 and selling to the Hack family of Alpha. Our lineup of 11 bulls achieved a strong average of $9000 and sold into some fabulous herds in central and northern Queensland.

    What brings us a terrific feeling of optimism and pride is the demand for Charbray bulls in general.
    Across the board, a really solid draft of cattle drew strong competition and all vendors were recognised for offering quality sires representing how far the Charbray breed has come, and the wealth of opportunity on offer within the breed.

    A big thanks to Elders Stud Stock for their support in marketing the Trifecta team.

    We are so excited for the years ahead!
    We welcome enquiries at any time.
    For now, we wish all buyers the best with their purchases and eagerly await news of their progeny.
    Here’s cheers to Charbray! 🍻
