Buttabone Station was purchased by Paraway in 2010 as an expansion of the company’s Northern New South Wales beef program.  The property breeds and raises Angus cattle which are sold directly to local markets.

Buttabone’s flat expanses of grassy plains, rich black soil, reliable water points and its temperate seasons make it an ideal setting for finishing the property’s easy-doing Angus cattle.  The station’s complex network of paddocks allow Buttabone to carefully manage the distribution of its herd, and well-built laneways and new cattle yards allow the staff to quietly and safely work the stock.

As the aggregate of two original pastoral holdings, Buttabone and Buttabone Stud Park, Buttabone has houses and cottages dispersed across the property, providing homes for the staff and their families.
