Colin Flanagan and Patricia Ebert, the new owners of Prime Angus, would like to thank Peter, Annick and Lily Butterfield for the opportunity to purchase the home property ‘Glenwellyn” and the ‘Prime’ Angus Herd.
We come from South Australia, where we had established and developed ‘Granite Ridge Angus Stud’ building to 450 stud breeders on nearly 3000 acres, over a number of years. We made the decision to sell as none of our kin were interested in joining us in our highly intensive operation, having 400 acres of flood irrigation. The property and stud were sold in April 2019 as a walk-in walk-out sale, which meant the Granite Ridge Angus Stud will continue, which made us both happy.
At the time of selling we had no intentions of owning another stud, but after a few months break and continued encouragement from some of our strong supporters, like Allan and Coralie Gillogly, of Montrose Feedlot, Moree and Michael Glasser of GTSM, Staghorn Flat Victoria, our love of the Angus breeding and the Angus cattle was reignited.
When we came across this beautiful corner of NE Victoria, at Warrenbayne, which already had an established Angus herd – we could not resist the challenge.
So WATCH THIS SPACE to follow WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.
