"the typical beef animal"
These cattle mature and fatten
early. Their fat tends to marble (mix with lean
meat), a desirable quality in beef.
Breeders developed the Angus in
the Highlands of Northern Scotland. The breed was
brought to America in 1873. Today, cattle owners
throughout the United States raise the breed.
