Black Angus are very productive animals and are characterised by their lack of horns and shiny black satin-like hair. While they don’t necessarily reach a remarkably large height, their weight is very high, with females reaching up to 750kg and males coming to 1100kg. The Aberdeen Angus in particular is known for having exceptional adaptability when it comes to grazing, fertility and longevity. The breed adheres to standards set by law or by trade associations in countries where breeding is widespread – United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and many others. The meat from the Black Angus is deemed as some of the best in the world in terms of quality and is delicate, soft and rich in marbling fat. Though, in Italy the high fat content is not preferred.
