Angus cattle are naturally polled and are either red or black in color. There is no generic difference between black and red Angus, but they are regarded as different breeds. Angus can adapt to versatile climates and are generally low maintenance with minimal input costs. The pigment in their skin protects against sunburn and frost burn. Other positive aspects of the breed are the cows’ ability to mature quickly and have a high fertility rate. Cows also usually have strong maternal instincts and milking capabilities. Angus typically have low birth weights, calve easily, and have high carcass traits. They are a versatile breed that can be crossbred utilizing heterosis and hybrid vigor. Breeding replacement heifers to a low birth weight Angus bull virtually eliminates calving problems. Angus are among the most common breeds in American beef production and are popular with producers and consumers in the marketplace of food consumption.
