Black Angus, also called Aberdeen Angus, is a cattle breed that was originally bred in Eastern Scotland. Today, the Angus beef is popular worldwide for its excellent meat quality. Angus cattle are hornless and have, as the name says, a black coat. In the U.S. Black Angus is one of the most common breeds of cattle, not least because of their rapid growth and their ease of attitude. So the animals are regarded as extremely good-natured and peaceful. Even full-grown bulls are seldom aggressive.
