Among meat cattle breeds Angus cows belong to the medium-sized type. Cows are characterized by extended body with deep ribs. Shoulders and back are wide positioned and well-muscled. Pelvis is long, wide and slightly inclined making its best for an easy calving. The veal part musculature is deep and wide with well-edged inner side. To the common characteristics of Angus cattle belong light short head, fine osseous structure, very regular limbs and firm hooves. Strongly set udder with short well-absorbing nipples ensures long-lasting yield of a cow.

 

Features:

Thanks to a quiet temper this breed is easy to look after. Deep ribs and body give wider opportunities for cattle gazing, the feature valued in Angus cows all over the world. Even in hash environment this breed shows high efficiency. One of the main advantages of Angus cows is their typically early maturity which allows it to lay at the age of 15 months; the first calving goes smoothly by the second year of birth; the cow reaches its end weight after the third calve.

Good milking capacity of the cow ensures an extended feeding period over 9 months with an excellent weight gain by calves. Due to the above average capacity to live on roughage, simplicity in handling and good fattening rate the breed Angus is cost-efficient. Its genetic superiority is demonstrated by well-outlined delicate hulk parts and special delicacy and marbling of meat.
