Commonly sold in fast food joints such as Back Yard Burger and McDonalds, the meat of black Angus cows is widely enjoyed in the United States and several countries around the world.
My experience with these cows was good - They are solid, beautiful cattle. Their shiny black coats and thick, muscular build makes them attractive both in the field and to buyers. Because of their build, they handle winter much better than most other breeds do. Unlike a large number of other breeds, the horns are naturally polled.
These guys average a weight of about 850kg and can be black or red in color - The United States is the only country right now that registers the colors as two separate breeds. When it comes to the beef, both taste very similar.
If you're needing a strong, resilient cattle breed that grows fast and can make it through the winters without much issue, I suggest Angus cattle.
