Our Journey

Our journey with Herefords began when Felice & Maria Trovatello, along with sons Sam and Alvio, purchased Glendan Park back in 1989.

Herefords were chosen to build the Stud – an easy choice considering the advantages they offer:

  • Adaptable to a variety of Australian conditions.
  • Ability to finish well on grass.
  • Fantastic temperament.

Right from the outset the aim was to produce the best Hereford cattle possible. Some things have changed since then, but our philosophy has not.

The Stud operates with 200 Hereford and Poll Hereford breeders – large enough to increase genetic gain, yet small enough to produce the optimum genetic package.

We embrace performance and technology to aid our selection decisions, however we feel that phenotype and structural integrity should not be overlooked. We have been using Breedplan since 1990, and in recent times, the use of genomics in our herd.

Alvio, daughter Alicia, and a passionate team are focused on breeding functional cattle that fulfill the many demands of today’s markets. Andrew Green, our Stud Manager, brings a wealth of cattle breeding, and overall management experience, being in the Stud Beef industry all his life. Beau Kriewaldt has been an integral part of our program for the past 15 years, dealing with bushfires, drought and even some green grass.

The Annual Bull Sale is the perfect time to secure Glendan Park genetics. It is usually held on the last Friday in February.  Click here for 2024 Annual Bull Sale information.

We pride ourselves on giving great customer service and importantly, building strong relationships with our new and existing clients.

Don’t forget – Bull and Herd inspections are welcome any time – just give Alvio, Alicia or Andrew a call to arrange a suitable time!
