All Queensland Property Owners - did you know you are no longer able to clear any "remnant vegetation" from your property.! Which now means large tracks of land are being invaded and engulfed by lantana and other weeds - BUT you can do something about this without chemicals = our goats can legally clear this land for you..! They're fence trained and call to feed.

"Stonehaven Stud" is based on the sub-tropical hinterland of the Sunshine Coast,  Queensland, Australia. We are currently breeding Dexter Cattle, Australian Stock Horse, and Kalahari Red & Boer Goats.

Our Mission

We aim to produce quality Stud and Commercial Stock using innovative and unique bloodlines and breeding methods. All our stock should be hardy and well muscled, able to survive in difficult feed and conditions. We are sourcing Bull, Stallion and Ram genetics from around the globe to use in our AI program. All our stock is breed for quality genetic traits, temperaments and conformation. Our stock can be used for Stud purposes or commercial ventures, and family pets for those on smaller acreages.
