Alto Angus cows

Pure Native Scottish Angus Heifers and calves

As 'Calrossie Angus' we purchased cattle in the 1970s from the Barwidgee Stud and Commercial Herds.   

 We looked for those lines again in 2004 when the Alto Angus Stud was established purchasing females from

descendants of well known families from Mrs Gwen Kelly's, Barwidgee Angus Stud.

In 2012 the first pure "Native Angus" from Dunlouise were born in our attempt to return to the genuine Angus attributes.

They have proven to be all we asked for and more -  In so much as we had forgotten just how efficient they are and reduction in costs has improved the bottom line!
