Summary

Frederick Bracker arrived in New South Wales in 1829 and remained when he was chosen to manage a run by the Aberdeen Co, called Rosenthal. He managed Rosenthal until 1849. He was considered an authority in wool-growing who farmers and squatters turned to for advice. He experimented with lucerne and introduced the first horse-powered steel roller mill, the first to produce flour from his own wheat. Rosenthal and his other property, Warroo, became training places for aspiring squatters.
