Erison of Harviestoun (Trangie IMP) Produced Red Calves, main source of the red gene in Australia
Sire: Janric of Dalmeny
Dam: Erissa of Harviestoun

The information relating to Erison of Harviestoun who appears in lowline pedigrees and the Lowline Foundation Herd Book can be found at History of Red angus in Australia. In Australia as overseas, some Red calves appeared in black herds. It is generally acknowledged that Baraon Beppo and Erison of Harviestoun, Grandeur of Fordhouse and Benes of Gaidrew were the main source of the Red gene, but a study of the full pedigrees of early cattle coming to Australia and New Zealand, indicate that many other would also have carried the red gene.
