NSW Central West & Rangelands Regional Chair- Gus Whyte 

Angus, with his wife Kelly, runs a mixed grazing operation over two properties in the Wentworth/Broken Hill area on the Anabranch River. Here, they produce mainly store lambs and calves for on-selling to finishers, while mutton is sold over the hooks.

Merino genetics are predominantly used in the sheep flock, although most years White Suffolk rams are placed over a portion of the enterprise’s ewes. Angus’ cattle herd includes cross-bred cows, predominantly Santa Gertrudis cross, with the use of Angus bulls.

Angus is chairman of the Southern Community Advisory Group for the Western Local Land Services and past chairman of the Lower Murray Darling Catchment Management Board. His strong work in the area of soils has seen his operation selected by Soils For Life as one of two case studies for the Western NSW region.
