• Highest genetic Purity - Rangers Valley

Angus Brand Verification

Rangers Valley is wholly committed to the breed integrity of its Black Angus beef. We select our Angus firstly by genotype, followed by phenotype*. This ensures our Angus beef is of the highest genetic purity available in Australia.

Our Angus is Verified Black Angus Beef

To assure and maintain purity and to verify Rangers Valley’s Verified Black Angus Beef status, we have independent verification performed twice a year by the Angus Society of Australia, who represent the Angus farmers of Australia. This verification is ISO accredited. To view our latest verification, click here.

Breed Statutory Declarations

  • Phenotypic assessments
  • Supply chain traceability
  • Product traceability through processing
  • Product carton labelling
  • Cattle produced under an approved program covering raising claims**

Successful verification of our Black Angus beef means our product can display the Verified Black Angus Beef trademark, which signals that our products are verified to meet the Angus Australia standard for parentage: Sire – Black Angus, Dam – Black Angus.

*Genotypic and Phenotypic assessment

While the genotype, or genetic makeup of our Angus is of critical importance in our selection process, phenotypic assessment is also significant.

All animals packed under the Verified Black Angus Beef program must meet the Angus Society of Australia’s Black Angus Assessment Guidelines.

This requirement is more stringent than Angus programs overseas where red, white and blue roan hides may be permitted also.

**Raising Claims

The raising claim Angus relates to the production of meat that is derived from animals described as Angus. While other Angus brands comply with the minimum of 75% Angus genetics required to describe an animal as Angus, Rangers Valley Angus have the highest possible percentage of Angus genetics, far exceeding this minimum. In addition, Angus steers must be sired by Black Angus bulls of known pedigree from commercial Black Angus cows and comply with the Angus Society of Australia’s Black Angus Assessment Guidelines.

Rangers Valley animals are bred to the highest possible percentage of Angus genetics and comply with the Angus Society of Australia’s Black Angus Assessment Guidelines.
