Australian Lowline (now American Aberdeen) cattle were developed from the Angus herd which was established at the Trangie Research Center in 1929, to provide quality breeding stock for the Australian cattle industry. The foundation stock was purchased from the Glencarnock stud in Brandon, Canada. The Angus breed has it’s origins in eastern Scotland, in the counties of Aberdeen and Angus, where it was developed from the native black hornless cattle. 3b.jpg (47299 bytes)
The last outside introduction was in 1964. From thereon, the herd remained totally closed until 1993 when the complete dispersal sale occurred and 20 bulls were sold, together with 44 cows and 51 heifers.

The Australian Lowlines (American Aberdeen) are docile and well conformed. They have become a distinctive registered breed known for their feed efficiency, lower production costs and half-size cuts of heart-smart, flavorful beef.
