October 2015 - It has been a massive few months for Urban Angus. We have now relocated to 1822 Dungog Road Wallarobba. After selling our property at Girvan and with the lease on Tunnibuc coming to an end we were under the pump to find a new home for both ourselves and the cattle. Thankfully Dillion & Sons Agents in Dungog were able to negotiate the sale of Lyndhurst just in time! We have now sold all of our commercial cattle and can focus on the Stud Herd.

SEPTEMBER 2011 - Purchased Forres Nebraska E134. A thick set Nebraska son with a low birth weight of +2.0 for a +99 600 day. This bull was selected to add thickness and moderate the birth weight of our herd. He was super cool on sale day and has displayed a faultless temperament.
MAY 2011 - We attended the Forres Angus Herd dispersal and were pleased to bring home x5 PTIC Cows. Forres has a great reputation and we couldn't miss the opportunity to secure top stud cattle so close to home. We have now added 3 new cow lines to our stud Burnette, Royal line and Ester. We now await their calves. We are particularly excited to see the Abode sired calves on the ground. We sighted some outstanding calves by Abode on sale day and can see why he sold for $22,000.
