The Talgai enterprise was establish in 2004 after owners Max & Roz Baldwin purchased the Robenlea Santa Gertrudis Stud and property, “Dingyarra” at Toogoolawah. The Talgai Santas prefix and Stud No 1990 came into the Santa Gertrudis industry in 2005 as the Baldwin family owned the Australian Heritage listed homestead ‘Talgai’ near Allora on the Darling Downs. The whole stud operation in 2007 moved from “Dingyarra” to the Darling Downs when Max and Roz purchased two other properties in the area. In 2014 the homestead was sold.
In March 2018 the company purchased, ‘The Gorge’, and then the neighbouring property, ‘Broadlands’. Both are located in the Nindooinbah area just outside of Beaudesert. The entire Stud operation is based at ‘The Gorge’ and a commercial heard of Santa/Charolais breeders is run on “Broadlands”. Along with both Stud and Commercial cattle operations, Talgai runs Talgai Prime Hay Suppliers. Quality hay is produce from both ‘The Gorge’ and ‘Broadlands’.
