Welcome to Calioran Droughtmasters

David, Rosemary and Michael Purnell and family operate the Calioran Droughtmaster Stud
on the 800ha holding “Calioran”

The prefix was founded in 2000 with the purchase of 40 PTIC heifers at the Cungelella Swan Female Sale. Located 30 kilometres North-Northwest of the city of Rockhampton, the property boasts a five kilometre frontage to the Fitzroy River. The property has access to, and embraces, irrigation from that source.

This initial outlay of $166,000 formed the nucleus of the herd that now numbers 150 registered females on the 800ha holding. Foundation sire was the $40,000 Swan Ironman, the reserve senior champion of Beef 2000. At 32 months he weighed 970kg and had an EMA of 137cm sq and was purchased at the final Cungelella Swan Sale in 2000.
