Welcome to The Rock Angus

The Rock Angus began in 2009 with the purchase of cows and heifers from The Grange dispersal in Albury. Since then, we have sourced females on a regular basis from studs around New South Wales and Victoria to build the backbone of our breeding herd. Artificial insemination has been employed from the outset, utilising prominent sires from Australia, New Zealand and the US. Embryo transfers were introduced in 2016 to produce elite calves from the very best of our females.

We do genomic testing on all the animals on our property – males and females – and have done so since the technology first became available. DNA testing improves the accuracy of pedigree EBVs which allows us to select our best females as donors and helps us to match AI sires for those traits we are seeking to improve. It also gives the buyers of our bulls and females the most accurate information possible to assist them in their choices. Genomic testing includes parental verification which means that the purchaser can be assured that the animal being bought from us is exactly what is being paid for which is not always the case otherwise.

Calving ease and early calving are of paramount importance in our program.  Our breeding focus is on a strong birth weight to 600 day weight ratio whilst moderating mature cow weight and maintaining positive fat scores.

Sharing a message I received today.

Good morning/evening to all studs. I'm james cruikshank from coolamon, NSW. I'm 14 and I'm currently looking for a stud to work with. I have had about a year's worth of experience, always embracing all the advice I can get to make myself a better cattle shower, public speaker, and junior judging and auctioneer. I have shown Speckle Park and black Angus cross Limousin through the Riverina Anglican College.
I love to start new things, for example, getting more involved in cattle shows, which I'm passionate about. I love meeting new people and learning new skills, I'm great with elders and younger kids. If anyone has a place for a keen worker with a great work ethic I would love to have the opportunity to work for and have a place as a cattle shower for any studs willing to have me. I will always try to give it my all to show off the wonderful studs out there, whether that be just keeping it tidy in the beds, looking after the cattle, junior judging paraders or prepping animals for the ring. I'm open to any breed and would love the opportunity to learn new things about different breeds.
Thank you for taking the time to read this
If interested please contact me and I will pass on details.
