Again we have the latest from the Queensland breeders to have a read over. A lot of QLD stallions are performing well going into the QTIS 600 sales. We have a preview of Clear Mountain Fairview on the site under ‘Breeding Buffs’ for those who want to find out about their yearlings, and we should have a preview of another stud soon.



The Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA) has recently commissioned a study into mining development in Queensland and its impact on thoroughbred breeding.

The study details coal resource areas, mining leases and exploration permits and reveals 38 studs across the Darling Downs and Beaudesert region are at risk of mining encroachment.

The TBA has recently fought such development within the Hunter Valley and is now working proactively to prevent a repeat of that situation in Queensland.

The TBQA has forwarded copies of the report to affected studs, asking for proprietors feedback about how mining development would affect your livelihood.

If you did not receive the report, you have not been earmarked as an affected property, but that does not mean your opinion is not important and we would welcome your input.

If you would like further information, or a copy of the study, please contact the TBQA office 0412 026 540 or info@queenslandbreeders.com.au
