Vale Ted Hart

November 23, 2017

The Droughtmaster breed lost one of its pioneer breeders recently, when Ted Hart passed away aged 91.


Our sympathy and condolences go to Ted’s family, friends and loved ones.


Ted was the first person to take Droughtmasters into the Northern Territory.  In 1973 after he purchased Hodgson River Station in the Roper River District.  With wife Elizabeth and daughters Sonya and Donna, Ted set about building up the Hodgson River Stud.  Ted had already established the Oaklea Droughtmaster Stud in Atherton in 1968 (Stud No. 43) based on Mungalla, Cherokee and Glenray bloodlines plus animals bred by Louis Fisher.  He renamed the stud Hodgson River when he moved his family to the Northern Territory.


Teds incredible life of achievement against adversity is chronicled in an article written by Chris McLennan in the Katherine Times. Click Here to read the full story.
