Angus breed of cattle
Angus cattle possibly is the only breed in the world that was developed exclusively for beef from its beginning. They are distinguished from other breeds by their black color, comparatively smooth coats of hair, and polled heads.

These cattle are good rustlers and are available to adapt themselves rapidly to the varied climatic and grazing conditions throughout the country. Angus cattle appear to have propensity for marbling. Many packers will pay a premium for Angus-bred cattle.
