"By using bulls with high-value carcase traits and maintaining selection for maternal traits, we are adding value to our clients' calves"

Established 1989

Outwest Angus is situatied on the flat western plains of NSW 50km west of Coonamble.

Ewens great grandfather James McLeish started cattle breeding in 1901 on "Sandy Camp" Quambone - our daughters Diana & Belinda are fifth generation cattleman.

Outwest Angus was founded in 1988 by Ewen and Marg McLeish, the stud is based on cows from the Bronmar Stud at Quirindi established in 1964 & still run by Margs parents Barry & June McFarlane.  Additional heifers were added from Farrere & Mundoo Studs. Diana, Marg & Bindi

Outwest Angus is truly that "out west", with no other stud operations in close proximity.

Coonamble area is renowned for its broadacre farming.  Outwest Angus does no farming.  All cows are run on natural pastures all year round with the winter season of June July generally being the best time of year for pasture growth of natural clover& medics, crowfoot & barley grass.

The Outwest Angus herd consists of 300 cows all registered and our committment to breeding cattle is such that this is our sole income.  We source our gentics from North America using our industry contacts & regular trips to USA every two years to look at bulls & their progeny.  All our yearling bulls & females are ultrasound scanned every year for EBV data.

All our cows are artifically inseminated using only imported high performance sires with high accuracies.  Breeding goals include selecting females with maternal characteristics such as milking ability & efficient reproduction.  By using bulls with high value carcase traits & maintaining our selection for maternal traits we are adding value to our clients calves.

Marg & EwenOutwest Angus is an open house to buyers & visitors year round.  We sell 90 -100 bulls per year with 90% of these being sold out of the paddock.

We target several mulit vendor sales each year including Sydney Royal Easter Show Sale, New England Angus Breeders Sale Tamworth & Midwest Angus Association Sale at Dubbo.

We believe in encouraging the future of the beef industry by involving many young people hosting work experience students from Australian schools & universities as well as students from other countries - New Zealand, Ireland, France & Germany.

Our daughters Diana & Belinda are involved in all aspects of the Outwest program.  

Both Diana & Belinda have started their own Angus Studs and have both derived their stud names from Outwest. Diana's stud is West Star and Belinda's is Black Out.

While we will still sell a large majority of bulls on farm, 2013 will saw the introduction of a bull sale at Ouwest Angus, this marked a new era for Outwest Angus, which will see us offer over 50 of our spring drop bulls for an on property auction each autumn.
