Other common names: Chi-Angus; Chianina x Angus
The Chiangus Cattle breed was developed in the United States in 1976, when the Chianina was crossed with the Angus. The goal was to produce a polled, black cattle breed with a lean, high quality carcass.
According to the American Chianina Asociation (ACA),"The Chiangus is a prime example of breed complementarity. The black, polled offspring capitalize on the outstanding qualities of their parents. Cows have a long reproductive ability and are very fertile. The resulting carcass has high cutability and provides an excellent eating experience."
