Rare Surprise for Burra's Black Angus:

Inside South Australia

"Burra’s Princess Royal Station owner, Simon Rowe, was more than a little surprised when his black angus beef grabbed silver at this year’s World Steak Challenge in London.

It’s not that he didn’t believe his premium grain-fed beef deserved the international recognition – it’s just he had no idea his company’s product was in the competition.

“The first we knew was when the results came out so it was a major surprise – we were really stoked,” says Simon."

Princess Royal Station Telstra Business Awards

2015 Telstra Business Awards Success

In the face of adversity, family-owned livestock business Princess Royal Station has risen to become a highly respected large-scale livestock enterprise. Situated in SA’s historic pastoral centre of Burra, it was formed in 2003 from an existing business, T&R Pastoral, by Simon Rowe and his father and industry figure, the late Robert Rowe. Applying a lifetime of passion and skill the pair have forged a business in breeding and preparing premium cattle for domestic and overseas sale, and trading of cattle, sheep and lamb.

Boasting its own freight division for livestock transport, they also produce one-third of their feed requirements from their large scale cropping program. Despite setbacks of drought, fire and the loss of Robert Rowe, the business has thrived as one of the area’s major employers and holds contracts with Teys Australia and Woolworths Limited.

"We’re always looking at new procedures, methods and technology to ensure our end product is constantly of premium standard, as demanded by the international marketplace." - Simon Rowe, Director Princess Royal Station
