The Angus breed is home to the industry’s largest beef cattle performance database, fueling genetic progress through each generation. Breeders rely on the comprehensive set of data to continue growing the nation’s quality beef supply.
Angus Media provides unrivaled marketing opportunities for cattle producers, and Association programs such as AngusSource allow breeders to set their calves apart from the crowd.
Registered-Angus cattle continue to set the industry pace for quality genetics. Demand remains strong year after year, as reflected by strong sales trends and an increase in Angus cattle on the market.
