Since 1965

Beef Breeding Services (BBS) has been providing ongoing services to the cattle industry since 1962. Beef Breeding Services was originally operated by the Queensland Government  from 1965 to 2013.

Family Owned Company

In 2013 Beef Breeding Services was privatised and purchased by the locally owned Tandy Group, a family business that has operated since 1968 that own and operate local businesses within North and Central Queensland.

Tandy Group continued to employ the long serving staff of BBS and others with many years’ experience in rural and business industries.
