At the time, the colonized British and European cattle breeds were simply no match for Australia’s famous droughts and flooding rains. Through passion, ingenuity and hard work a future icon was born, the Droughtmaster. Often referred to as the Droughtie and admired around the country, Droughtmaster cattle are truly one of Australia’s natural wonders.
