Red Angus Society executive officer Colin Rex has predicted a bright future for the big red cattle breed, chosen by many Dubbo region graziers.

Speaking at the National Red Angus Show and Sale in Dubbo yesterday, Mr Rex was reflecting on a successful event, where a bull from Molong stud ‘Tullatoola’ was awarded grand champion.

“There was a great line up of bulls, there was a high standard and good presentations,” he said.

“There were lots of people here watching who were not necessarily (Red Angus) society members.”

Mr Rex said the show and sale was held at Dubbo because it was a central location with the right facilities.

Dubbo had good clientele in a 200km radius, Mr Rex said and the cattle leader believes Red Angus’s future will exist long after its 40th anniversary, celebrated in Dubbo this week.

“The beauty of Red Angus is it is a versatile breed and complementary to other breeds,” he said.

“I see the future as quite strong.

“Red Angus is one of the strongest red options in the market.”
