Raff Angus Golden AnniversaryRaff Angus purchase new cow - Vermont Champagne C371 CCVC371

Her sale comments from Stephen Handbury Anvil Angus – C371, one of the original Right Time cows we purchased at the Vermont Dispersal. Anyone who has travelled to the US will know the significance of Right Time to the Angus cow herd. He was the first cow maker of the modern Angus era. Only a very limited amount of semen was ever bought into Australia and at one time I even sold a single straw for $2,600. So knowing this we chased what Right Time cows we could both here and abroad. When C371 came up in the dispersal and she was physically everything we expected we added her to our herd. At the time of writing the catalogue she has calved 9 calves all within a month of each other each spring, including her last calf that featured in our Autumn bull sale. I fully expect she will make the sale with her 10th calf at foot. Even for her age she still offers great birth weight, positive fat and fantastic net feed efficiency. If we were to continue our program she was certainly entering our donor program.

A Visit to the United Kingdom by David Raff : In June 2013 Jill and I spent a month in the United Kingdom visiting Aberdeen-Angus herds in England and Scotland culminating in a visit to the Royal Highland Show at Edinburgh. The purpose of the visit was to research the Angus breed in that country, the founding country of the Angus cattle breed over 200 years ago, and to search for suitable genetics to import to take the Raff Angus to the next level. I last visited the UK in 1980 when I spent six months there on a Nuffield scholarship. >> Read more
