Bruce Davison of Candelo Salers which is a ‘Beef Only’ grazing property owned and operated by Bruce and Heidi Davison. The farm is on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, in the Bega Valley. They breed Salers-Angus composite cattle and have a few black poled Salers purebreds.
The cattle are pasture fed only, rotationally grazed and they use low-stress cattle handling methods. Their cattle are robust and quiet, are hormone growth promotant free and are anti-biotic free.
Bruce is keen on composting worms which quickly and efficiently turn cow manure and other organic waste into worm castings at almost no cost. He says that they work 24 hours a day 7 days a week requiring only food and water in return.
