About Us

“Our belief is that the driving force of our herd is the depth of the maternal power in the pedigree of each animal. This gives you confidence to buy due to the predictability of the results you will obtain with each purchase, whether it be females, bulls, semen or embryos.”

Granite Ridge is a dedicated Angus Stud with Colin Flanagan and Pat Ebert being full time, hands on owners, who together with Alistair (Haggis) Watson and his family – (wife Kylie and son Rory) run an intensive operation on 2800 acres in the lower South East of South Australia. Totalling approximately 400 HBR breeders, with 350 autumn breeders, progeny and bulls run on 2000 acres.  The remaining run on 800 acres as spring calvers, along with Granite Ridge progeny steer testing and where much of our hay is cut.


Granite Ridge Angus is the home of “ROCK SOLID GENETICS”
We breed for an animal that will meet the requirements of all markets, from the breeder to the end consumer, as each area along the process must make a profit – weaner, back-grounder, feedlot, abattoir – and the consumer deserves good eating quality.
