Angus beef: because everyone loves it

Angus: the origins

The Angus breed has Anglo-Saxon origins, however different origins can be found ranging between - almost - all the continents: from Australia to New Zealand passing through America and obviously also in Europe. Well. If it is so widespread it is because it is truly the top of the top, perhaps.

Its origins are Scottish, more precisely it is the County of Aberdeen with its green meadows where animals graze freely to offer a refined product: Black Angus. In fact, it is this last version of the breed that is prized: the tender, sweet and soft meat lends itself to multiple processes, releasing a unique flavour. The peculiarity of the black version is characterized not only by the color of the coat, but also by the relatively small size of the animal with short and compact limbs. The physical conformation contributes to making the meat a valuable product with an unquestionable flavour.

Among its qualities is being marbled to the right degree. This characteristic is a fundamental element for grilling and cooking because, through the preliminary marinating phases, it allows the meat to keep its softness and juiciness intact.

Angus cattle breed. Specific character

The Angus cattle breed has a certain physical conformation and responds to certain parameters. The breed is pulled, i.e. without horns, and the size reaches up to 850 kg, nevertheless it is equipped with short limbs: few muscles and a lot of meat. The black coat defines the Black Angus, while the Argentine Angus has a red coat. In any case, the two sub-breeds differ slightly: marbling is the main discriminant.

Black Angus and breeding

There are some cattle breeds that lend themselves perfectly to Grass Fed breeding. For others, however, this type of feeding compromises the structure and maintenance of the native being. One of the privileges of Grass Fed breeding is the preference to leave the animals free to graze in the meadows, thus following the rhythm of nature without forcing or using synthetic feed. This type of breeding allows predisposed animals to develop intramuscular fat which, in other words, results in perfect marbling. Argentine Angus, on the other hand, is raised in fields where corn is grown, and allows the meat to take on a unique and rather strong flavor.
