Ashgrove in 2020 became the proud owners of Matauri Angus
The herd was purchased from Colin Maxwell near Kaeo, and has a very proud tradition with some outstanding bulls bred over the years with Matauri genetics spread through most Angus stud herds across NZ. The 200 cows are exceptional hill country cows with great structure, temperament and outstanding maternal traits. They rank well above the Angus NZ breed average for Self Replacing Index and are known for their hardiness and shifting ability.
Bulls are sold as yearlings in September and as 2 year-olds in June of each year by auction. Surplus females are also available for sale to studs for transfer and discerning commercial buyers.
