I have dedicated the founding of this Stud to my parents, Maude and Elton Forshaw,whose passing saw the end of 45 years of Droughtmaster breeding at Yeldham Station in the Southern Gulf of Carpentaria, where they ran 8000 head of commercial Droughtmasters.

Savannah Droughtmaster Stud is located at Renner Springs Station,Northern Territory, Australia. Renner Springs is rated as sub tropical in climate range. Our cattle are raised mostly on soft desert spinefex grass with a mix of buffel and native grasses. The quality Droughtmaster herd is about 95% polled with the remainder being scurred or horned. The base herd came from our Family property Yeldham Station in the Southern Gulf of Carpentaria. Our Family (the Forshaws) raised Droughtmasters for 35 years. After Yeldham was sold (in 2006) we moved a small herd to Renner Springs to start our own bull breeding Stud. The cattle are very quiet, and are well handled on horses and bikes. .
