Native Angus herd


The Angus breed we know today is far removed from the original Angus breed established in the counties of Aberdeen and Angus in Scotland more than 200 years ago. The Angus were radically altered in the 1970s with the introduction of North American Angus genetics, which had been infused with other breeds of cattle in response to changing economics that favoured larger framed cattle suited to grain finishing and feedlot production. Native Angus® is the name that has been given to animals that can be traced back to the origin of the Aberdeen Angus breed with no imported bloodlines and which therefore retain the genetic qualities for taste, texture and marbling that originally established the Angus reputation worldwide.​


Our grasslands are situated in the lush Northern Tablelands of the New England region of New South Wales, considered one of the premier grazing regions of Australia on account of a reliable, temperate climate and highly mineralized soils. Arrawatta Station has some 1,800ha of rich red and black basalt soils, ideal for both native and improved pasture, with adequate gentle hilly country and an 8.5km stretch of the Macintyre River. Native grasses abound on the hilly country, while the flat lands are ideal for improved pasture species. The property uses a variety of regenerative management practices to build soil biome health, and to improve environmental biodiversity and water quality.
