NIOA Pastoral Company was formed by Robert and Eliza Nioa to manage the family’s Santa Gertrudis Stud. The stud is based at Talgai Homestead which is located on the fertile Darling Downs near the town of Allora Queensland.
Talgai Homestead has been home to several Santa Gertrudis Studs over past generations and the Nioa family is excited about continuing the tradition.
From the outset the family has set about acquiring some of the best genetics available and have an intensive breeding plan in place. 2017 saw the start of an AI and ET program which then lead into an IVF plan for 2018-19-20.
The Stud is focused on Performance and Fertility and are committed to promoting and improving the Breed.
Our breeding herd consists of a select group of females which we are slowly increasing. In 2017 we introduced new bloodlines including, Glen Oaks, Goolagong, Rosevale and Riverslea.
