Thank you so much for sharing this great photo and history, Angus New Zealand !

Throwback to 1976 and the late Colin Williams (third from left) who was on the Board of AngusNZ during the 1980s and early 1990s, spending two years as president. During this time Colin was instrumental in what would eventually prove to be one of the most important developments in the Angus breed, when AngusNZ became part of BreedPlan, now known as TACE, (Transtasman Angus Cattle Evaluation). TACE is an international genetic evaluation producing EBV’s (Estimated Breeding Values) which includes pedigree performance and genomic information from Angus New Zealand and Angus Australia cattle along with selected information from American and Canadian Angus Associations. Making AngusNZ Members or Breeders part of the largest group of grass-fed, internationally performance evaluated cattle in the world with direct links into American and Australian Angus since 1989.

AngusNZ has been performance recording since the mid 1950s which meant that the database of performance-evaluated grass-fed cattle AngusNZ already had was huge and was greatly increased when the Data was combined with Angus Australia

Angus has such a rich heritage in New Zealand, and to celebrate the important role it plays in the beef sector we remember some of the people who have helped shape it.

A NEWBIE AND A THROWBACK TO LEGENDARY SIRES! A new on-farm auction 2021 record price of $106,000 at Kaharau Angus and another legendary sire, Q327 is described as a well-put together bull, with beautiful temperament, Rob & Lucy Thorneycroft and Sam Duncan are enthusiastically awaiting his arrival at Elgin Angus and Tapiri Angus.

Around the sales there has been a lot of reminiscing about top priced bulls from times gone by with lot 8 selling for $104,000 at Turiroa Angus last year, purchased by Kaharau Angus and Orere Angus.

And then in 2015 Charlie and Susie Dowding were stunned when Rangatira 13-38 went for $100,000 to Cricklewood Angus.

Going back a bit further to 1992 Alan and Michelle Dalziel of Atahua Angus had no idea that syndicates of breeders were forming around them to bid for Atahua Legacy and a big night of celebrating followed the auction that saw him go for $155,000 at the National Bull Sale in Palmerston North, bought by the late Colin Williams and founder of Kaharau Angus. In 1994 Atahua Westpoint also sold for big 💰 for $132,000.

Worth a special mention is the very first Mt Possession Angus sale, top price South Island high country bull going for $88,000 to Hallmark Angus.

All legendary sires and incredible results!


Great write up in the Gisborne Herald about our record breaking sale !
