Alangus Aussies, my name, comes from the family farm in Southern Kentucky.  When I was a child, my parents asked me to name the farm and with a child’s mental processes, I took the AL from alfalfa which covered a large portion of the tillable fields and added ANGUS which was the breed of cattle to whom the alfalfa was fed, creating Alangus Acres.  As an afterthought, we realized that AL are also my father’s initials so the name became even more appropriate.

Only a few of the fields are now used to grow alfalfa, but Dad continues to have exceptional Angus cattle of which some have won state championship titles.
