Seven Generations of breeding cattle…..
If you were to travel through the northern New England of NSW (between the towns of Inverell and Glen Innes) you would pass the home of Eaglehawk Angus. The first Vivers settled here in 1832 and have had a rich history in breeding fine cattle. Ian and Sally Vivers and children, Harry, Maggie and Annie continue this tradition.
The 4500 acres is operated under very commercial conditions to mimic the circumstances of our client base. At Eaglehawk Angus we calve down 500 registered cows per year. These calves are born in August and September, and from these approx 180 bulls per year are produced to market through our sale and privately. In addition to the registered herd we also run a commercial cow herd. The property also has a 1000 head registered feedlot.
Farming sustainably for another 7 generations….
We utilise the manure from our feedlot to make compost to naturally feed our soils. We farm approx 800 ac from which we produce corn silage, hay and grains for use in the feedlot and winter feeding, if necessary. We try to be the best custodians of our land and adapt to new sustainable methods of farming while breeding the very best Angus cattle that we can.
This is just a small snapshot of what we are about. Questions are welcome and we hope that you find our website informative and interesting.
