NBGen was founded in 2014 by Nick Boshammer who wanted to prove that beef production can be improved through a more efficient supply chain.
NBGen is owned and operated by Nick and Kate Boshammer near Chinchilla in the Western Downs Region, Queensland.
Nick shares a strong passion and dedication for improving beef quality, and is a second generation Angus bull breeder. His family held the 29th Glenoch Sandon Angus annual bull sale on August 12, 2020.
Nick studied a Diploma of Agribusiness at Marcus Oldham College before furthering his studies at one of the best agricultural university’s in the USA, Kansas State University. Nick knows what sets productive cattle apart from the rest. Whilst in the US, Nick was involved in animal production, feeding and nutrition, sales and marketing, and meat science classes. He was lucky enough to meet with some of the best experts and professors in the Angus Beef world and visit various operations which allowed a great insight into their programs and production systems.
It was during Nick's travels through Southern and Western Kansas when he visited Gardiner Angus Ranch that he found exactly what he was searching for - an operation that was bringing maximum value to their clients. After visiting and working in feed yards that were using Gardiner genetics, Nick was reassured to see these genetics outperforming all other cattle within the same feed yard, regardless of breed.
Today, Nick and Kate continue to build their breeder base and are achieving an incredible level of performance and success, producing some of the top registered Angus Australia bulls this year.
Kate grew up on her parents beef property outside of Warialda, NSW and is a 4th generation beef producer. She holds a Bachelor of Business Management (Marketing) and is passionate about encouraging vibrancy and growth in regional Australia. After spending over a decade working in PR and Marketing on multi-million dollar brands in Brisbane, Sydney and Tamworth, she is now a freelance Marketing and PR specialist.
Nick and Kate find success by each working on different aspects of NBGen, allowing them to bring the best of themselves to the business every day and giving each other the freedom to use their own judgement.
Nick and Kate both share an ambitious vision for Australian agriculture and look forward to what the future holds.
