Te Atarangi is situated on the Pouto Peninsula, 25 minutes South West of Dargaville. It backs on to the west coast (300 metres from high tide and good fishing spots) and is just 4 km by road from the Kaipara Harbour to the east.


We now have 330+ paddocks on the freehold block. There is a further 40 paddocks fenced with pigtails and poly wire. Most fencing now undertaken is 2 wire electric. We now have 7 sets of yards.


Our Angus Stud began in 1988 with the purchase of 5 cows from Matauri. We now farm 300 Angus cows along side 180 cross-bred cows. We aim for a maternal animal with reasonable growth and excellent ease of calving.


We have mated yearlings since 1982. All stud cows are calved behind a hot wire with calves from the Angus tagged and weighed at birth.

As we close out the 2021 year

We have had a very good spring and in December we are looking very good for grass. All stock are looking good. We have preg tested our first calving heifers (getting 86 in calf from 115 to the bull) this was with only 28 days exposed to the bull. The older cows have also been preg tested with very few MT from 43 days exposed to the bull. We expect the younger cows (2 and 3 year old) to have a bigger MT rate as they were very light at calving after 2 very dry summers and no autumn this year.


We had a very successful sale, offering 114 bulls and selling 106 for an average of $3633 and a top price of $8800 and 2 bulls going to stud. 1 to Maranui (top price) and 1 to Mangaotea (at $8000).
