Aberdeen Angus

ABERDEEN-ANGUS

Aberdeen-Angus cattle are certainly Scotland’s most famous native breed and they are a highly popular breed for beef production across the world. The breed originates from the Scottish counties of Aberdeenshire and Angus, hence the breed’s name, and they most commonly have a black coat although this can sometimes be red. Originating in Scotland, Aberdeen-Angus cattle are seen as a hardy breed, due to their native environment, and they generally mature earlier in comparison to the UK’s other native breeds. The beef is renowned for it’s excellent eating quality; being well marbled adds to the flavour and tenderness of Aberdeen-Angus beef.
