Geordie Soutar's commitment to pure breed Angus cattle has pulled them off the rare breeds list.
“The Native Origin Angus are on the critically endangered list”
-Quote from the rare Breeds Survival Trust Watch list, Spring 2009©
The Heritage Aberdeen "Prime-line" Midline-Angus cattle Association was formed to protect,restore and promote the Prime genetic advantage inherent in the original Scottish type Aberdeen Angus cattle.
These select cattle are referred to as Heritage Aberdeen cattle.
We recognize the full blood Australian Lowline Aberdeen cattle as a primary and historic source for this restoration effort. The Australian Lowline Cattle were developed from the Angus herd which was established at the Trangie Research Centre in 1929, to provide quality breeding stock for the New South Wales cattle industry.
We have also discovered what has been described as seven of the last pure cow family lines in Scotland, as well as a relic population in New Zealand. In addition the Association has recognized domestic resources from like minded cattle producers that have focused on similar conservatory efforts.
Getting back to Prime genetics where we belonged."
