THE QUALITY OF
THE ANGUS BEEF
Angus beef is presented everywhere: in restaurants, fast food chains or shops. Few people know about cattle breeds, classifications or stages of production behind the selling scene.
About the Aberdeen Angus breed
Aberdeen Angus cattle were raised from indigenous cattle in Scotland by Hugh Watson in the mid-19th century. There is Angus in red and black, but the most common is Black Angus.
The Angus breed has a number of advantages in beef production and beef qualities and has quickly become popular as a reproduction breed, as it helps reducing survival problems among other cattle breeds. Due to its increased resistance and the general popularity of the Angus breed, it has become the most popular breed in the United States.
Angus is a cattle breed, not a beef quality. Angus does not imply that beef is organic, natural or of a better quality than any other type of beef.
Not every beef named Angus is of superior quality. Only the name on the label does not guarantee that the products fully comply with the high standard. In recent years, the name of the race has become an insinuation of a whole process, creating the illusion of a guaranteed product.
In order for the finished product to really get to the popularity of the Angus name, cattle genetics, raising and feeding, finishing, slaughtering and cutting the meat, all have an important role in getting and delivering the promised product.
