Pasture Raised angus Beef
About Angus Cattle
Angus Beef is known for its finely marbled meat, which means that the fat is dispersed evenly against the actual cut of meat. This marbling trait of Angus cattle typically creates a very tender, juicy and flavorful steak. George Grant of Victoria, Kansas, imported the first Angus cattle to America in 1873. By September of 2018, over 327,000 head of Angus cattle were officially registered in the USA. Angus cattle now form the majority of the US cattle herd.
About Shorthorn Cattle
They are a medium size breed with a truly rectangular shape with a short, broad head and wide set eyes, and, you guessed it, they have short horns. Shorthorns are known for their early maturity, adaptability, mothering ability, reproductive performance, hardiness, good disposition, feed conversion, and longevity.
The Shorthorn breed of cattle originated in the North East of England in the late 18th century. The breed was developed as dual purpose, suitable for both dairy and beef production; however there were always certain blood lines within the breed which emphasized one quality or the other. Over time these different lines diverged and by the second half of the 20th century two separate breeds had developed – the Beef Shorthorn, and the Dairy Shorthorn.
