The Mayne Family


(Left to right Judy, Lachie, Ben, Rosie, Will, Wendy and Bill)

The Mayne Family purchased a large proportion of the Texas herd in 1951 when the Scottish Australian Company. dispersed to operate on the neighbouring property Gibraltar. In 1981, Bill and Judy Mayne with their 3 children Katie, Mandy and Ben went on their own, separated from the family operation and were able to rename the stud back to Texas Angus and continue the same original bloodlines.

Bill has dedicated well over 60 years in the Angus stud industry. During this period, Bill has been rewarded for his efforts winning many Grand Champions at Brisbane and Sydney Royal shows including the World Angus Form feature in 1959. With over 46 annual bull sales under his belt, Bill has certain made his mark at Texas Angus and the beef industry. His reputation for securing championships is very well known which gained him to be selected to Judge at many Royal and country shows along the Eastern coastline of Australia.

Bill and Judy's son, Ben, also developed the passion for breeding seedstock Angus and after completing a Advanced Diploma of Farm Management at Orange Agricultural College came back to home at Texas to continue the stud's success. In 1998 the Mayne family were fortunate to purchase "Doongara" at Warialda (Northern NSW one hour south of Texas) to further expand the stud. Ben married his wife Wendy, who also has a close affiliation with stud cattle coming from a well renowned Shorthorn stud in the Riverina (Southern NSW). Wendy has completed a Bachelor Agricultural Science and worked in Beef marketing at head office of Meat and Livestock Australia, travelling throughout Australia visiting feedlots, abbattoirs and overseas to Korea meeting with International meat buyers.
