Angus Australia was saddened to hear of the passing of Michael Ball OAM, Comfort Hill Angus NSW.
Mr Ball was the principal of the Comfort Hill Angus Stud, Sutton Forest NSW and a member of Angus Australia since 1995.
At the 2016 Australia Day Awards, Mr Ball was included as an Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO). Mr Ball was recognised for distinguished service to the community through leadership roles with major urban planning and heritage preservation organisations, and to the promotion of the history of cricket.
Mr Ball is survived by his wife Daria and sons Ben, Josh, Tim and Nick, to whom we extend our greatest sympathies.
