The Angus breed is renowned for ease of calving. Due to its size and short gestation period, Angus is particularly suitable to farmers whose objective is to secure a calf per cow each 365 days.
The hardiness and ability to thrive under less favoured grazing conditions are well recognised. The breed is well suited to extremes of weather and can be out-wintered very satisfactorily.
Angus cattle are quite and placid in temperment. Angus calves grow quickly, producing early maturing, high quality beef animals. Angus cows have excellent milking ability, when added to their ease of calving and high fertility, makes them ideal suckler animals.
Angus cattle are naturally polled and this is passed onto future generations even when crossbred. The distressful effects of dehorning your cattle can be avoided by using Angus.
We believe with traits of easy claving, early maturity, high fertility, quiet temperment, optinal growth rate and efficiency, producing carcase quality, and ability to finish early, it is no wonder Angus is the breed in demand!
