About Alex & Natalie
Alex began his working career as a plumber however after a few years on the tools returned to his true passion of farming. Alex paid his dues and rose through the ranks from stockman to Farm Manager learning as he went and honing his stock handling and breeding skills. Alex currently manages a large sheep and beef cattle operation as well as running Rose Hill Speckle Park Stud with Natalie. Alex is currently serving on the Board of Speckle Park International as Chairman.
While Alex has a firm practical base built over 30+ years on the land, Natalie came to the land through a love of animals large and small and studying Agriculture at university. Although living on the outskirts of Sydney, Natalie bred and showed ponies and dabbled with livestock. Natalie started her own AI business, “No Bull Artificial Insemination”, AIing the cows of market gardeners and hobby farmers. When Natalie is not working with Speckles she is a Teaching Principal at a Primary School.
While Alex and Natalie come from different backgrounds, their skill sets complement each other to form a strong and workable partnership. As breeders of Speckle Park in Australia for over 10 years, Alex and Natalie have a wealth of experience in navigating through Speckle Park genetics, the show ring and the running of Speckle Park sales. Natalie and Alex are always happy to share what they can with the Speckle Park community to further the breed and build strong relationships.
