About Knudsen Cattle

Producing beef with integrity for more than 20 years

Established in 2002 by Darcy and Kara Knudsen, Knudsen Cattle has gone from strength to strength and now includes a dedicated team operating across multiple sites in Queensland 

The business started from humble beginnings agisting stock on family properties, neighbouring properties, and anywhere there was spare grass.

Home base is at Rosehall, Mundubbera, which boasts 25 km of the Auburn River on its eastern Boundary, and is a special place where Darcy and Kara reside with their two sons, Tom and Jack.

In 2004, Elton Downs at Hughenden was purchased, and so began a long association with the Hughenden area. Elton Downs has become the hub for Knudsen Cattle’s northern operations, which include Mugwee, Saranac and Elvira.

Cattle are purchased from local areas and backgrounded before heading to local feedlots for the domestic and export market.
