The Angus cattle, also known as Black Angus, or Aberdeen Angus is a Scottish breed of black hornless cattle. They come from the counties of Aberdeen and Angus. It is a medium-sized to large breed, with the cow's weight averaging around 1000 lbs and bull's weight averaging from 1800 to 2000 lbs. Cattle are mostly black and naturally polled or hornless. They are commonly raised in Australia, New Zealand, United States, Canada, South America and the British Isles. It is one of the most popular beef breed in the United States as it is thought to be better quality beef. The American Angus Association made the "Certified Angus Beef" (CAB) standard in 1978 to push this thought.
