Angus Cattle - The Angus Advantage
The Aberdeen Angus Breed has a tradition in Canada going back
over 130 years. Today all Angus registration papers are processed
through the Canadian Angus Association office in Calgary, Alberta.
All animals registered in the Canadian Angus Association Herdbook
are 100 per cent purebred.
The Canadian Angus Association registers both Red and Black Angus.
Both colours offer the same traits, but Canadian registration
papers easily indicate the colour of the animal.
Angus can be found throughout all provinces and territories in
Canada, meaning access to cattle is excellent. Strong commercial
demand ensures the basic traits of mothering, muscling and marbling
are kept in the forefront. Along with the polled factor, natural
to Angus, these traits have often been imitated but never duplicated
by other breeds.
Canadian Angus has seen dramatic growth in the past few years,
and international interest in our genetics continues to grow.
Canadian Angus have been exported with great success to all five
continents and are generally regarded to be of superior quality
in global genetic circles.
- Calving ease and vigorous, live calves
Even in Canada's sometimes harsh calving season, the Angus cow
consistently delivers a calf that hits the ground running, with
little assistance required.
The Angus mothering instinct is very strong, as is the calf's
instinct to get up and suck within the first few moments after
- Superb mothers with superior milking ability
The Angus cow is renowned for her maternal traits, calving ease
and ability to milk producing a calf each year that more than
exceeds half her body weight
An Angus mother puts her all into her calf, producing an abundance
of milk right up to weaning.
- Early maturity, fertility and stayability
The Angus cow does her job well, whether it's her first or her
fourteenth calf. Stayability (a cow's continuing ability to
bear calves) is more than just a word with Angus - it's not
unusual for 12- and 13-year-old Angus cows to be productive.
- Naturally polled
No dehorning is required with Angus cattle as they carry a highly
heritable, natural polled gene.
Horns can cause bruising and tearing and good animal care is
another reason to choose Angus.
- No cancer eye or sunburned udders
The dark skin and udders of red and black Angus cattle mean
that sunburned udders are rarely a problem. Similarly, cancer
eye is not prevalent in Angus cattle.
- Adaptable to all weather conditions
With winters that can reach -30 degrees Celsius and summers
that can reach +30 degrees Celsius, Canada's climate can be
harsh. Yet Angus thrive under all conditions with a minimum
of maintenance and in all regions of Canada.
- Superior feed conversion
A recent study of crossbred cow types demonstrated that Angus-cross
were among the most efficient, providing higher net returns
- Natural marbling for tasty, tender beef
The market is calling for carcasses with more marbling in order
to satisfy consumer demand. The inheritability of marbling is
moderately high. The correlation between marbling and tenderness
is also moderately high so when cattle producers select for
marbling, tenderness improves. Using Angus cattle with their
superior marbling ability opens the door to improved beef tenderness
and increased consumer acceptance of beef
- Preferred carcass size and quality
Research demonstrates that Angus sires can be selected to produce
progeny that have an increased ability to grade AAA without
compromising feed efficiency or animal growth - and without
increasing yield grade at the expense of carcass quality.
