Welcome to Waitara Angus

The stud is located on “Waitara”, a 7500ha winter cropping & grazing property between Tottenham & Nevertire about 120km west of Dubbo smack bang in the centre of NSW. The property is home to the 3rd, 4th and 5th generation Chases on this land. Stephen & Amity and their four boys manage the business with Steve’s father Geoff as the cropping guru, and valuable farm staff Rod Anderson and Greig Seabrook keeping the wheels turning.

Stephen has lived and breathed cattle since school and his passion shows in every aspect of the business from the early days of the stud, through establishing an annual on farm sale to the efficient operation it is today.

It is our mission to supply each of our clients with quality genetics in a superior package that will improve their bottom line for years to come.


2019 Production Sale

Friday 9th August, 1pm

On-farm at “Waitara” Trangie


This year’s sale sees a reduction in numbers due to the season, but the high standard of bulls on offer continues to reflect our long term breeding goals of balanced sets of EBVs combined with structural soundness and ‘front paddock’ phenotype.

With 33 two year old bulls from sires such as Pathfinder General K7, JMB Traction, & VAR Discovery there is sure to be a bull in the 2019 draft to suit the most astute cattleman.

We look forward to seeing you there, with bucket loads of widespread rain in the meantime.

At the 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show a Waitara Angus steer took out Champion Lightweight steer on the hoof. This was a steer calved in the commercial herd in our toughest season yet, weaned at 2 months of age and fed our standard weaner, grower and feeder rations alongside every other calf on Waitara. He weighed in at 351kg at 8 months of age at Sydney, took out the broad ribbon in the lightweight show ring then went on to be sold for a sale topping $22/kg to Mr D’s Traditional Meats, Oran Park. We have been told the eating quality was sensational & their clients were very happy.
