OSullivans Black Limousin stud was formed in 2007, based entirely on Kensal bloodlines. It is owned and operated by Mick and Sandy OSullivan and family; Nathan, Jacqui and Matthew. Our Stud is located at “Gunnadoo” Lower Mt. Walker in the Bremer Valley, about 1 hr west of Brisbane, Qld.
We are very proud of the next generation, Nathan, Jacqui and Matt all excel in their studies and respective sports and interests. They all are actively involved in our stud and have been hugely successful in junior events and competitions.
Mick was born into seedstock breeding, with generations of the OSullivan`s running successful studs from horses, dairy cattle and beef cattle. Mick was brought up on his parents stud “Navleigh”, at East Greenmount, on the Darling Downs, Qld; where Illawarra dairy cattle and Poll Hereford cattle along with Thoroughbred and Stock horses were bred and raised. After working at the family farm Mick took on the Stud manager role at the renowned “Moorlands” Hereford and Poll Hereford studs, in Jan 1992 he started the role of manager of “Kensal Green” and the “Kensal” Limousin stud at Albury, NSW. The end of 1997 saw the late Clive Brothers sell “Kensal Green” and the cattle but not before offering Mick a substantial bonus of picking 25 females of choice, semen and the “Kensal” name. It was with this great start that Mick built the “Kensal” stud into the most renown Black Limousin stud in Australia, breaking records at Mick`s dispersal in Oct 2007.
In Dec 2007 we moved into “Gunnadoo” as a base for OSullivans Black Limousin we had bought 8 daughters and 30 embryos out of the best cows from the top cow families of the Kensal herd. We are now building our breeding herd numbers up through embryo transfer and natural breeding. In 2013 will we mate aprox 50 stud females as well as continuing with some embryo programs.
