Vale – Bobby Gregory

March 19, 2020 2:18 pm

It is with great sadness that Angus Australia has learned of the passing of Bobby Gregory. 

Bobby, like his father, Abbey, spent his entire working life with the Munro Family of Booroomooka Angus stud at Bingara, NSW. 

Bobby’s showing career began in 1938, when, at the age of three years and four months, he led a calf around the ring.  

After his fathers’ retirement in 1967, Bobby took over as stud manager with his wife, Yvonne, whom was always by his side on the property and the show circuit. 

Bobby will be remembered across the beef industry as someone with a lot of dedication and passion for the beef industry, but more importantly his education of youth in the industry. 

 Right up to the end Bobby was always seen ringside at any cattle event with his wife Yvonne, with the Sydney Royal Easter Show one of his favourites. 

2019 was the 80th year that Bobby attended the Sydney Royal Easter Show, with the Centenary Celebrations of Angus Australia taking centre stage at the show. 

At the 2016 Sydney Show, Bobby was honoured with the Royal Agricultural Society Show Legend Award and contribution award after winning grand champion parader 17 times at Sydney. An event that he also judged.
