Red Angus The Red Angus breed has the exact same origins of the Aberdeen Angus


Early Scottish Cattle. Although little is known abouttheearly origin of the cattle that later became known as theAberdeen-Angus breed, it is thought that the improvement of theoriginal stock found in the area began in the last half of the 18thcentury. The cattle found in northern Scotland were not of uniformcolor, and many of the cattle of the early days had varied colormarkings or broken color patterns. Many of the cattle were polled, butsome few had horns. The characteristics we commonly call polled wasoften referred to in the old Scottish writings by the terms of"humble," "doddies," "humlies," or "homyl." Early Scottish Cattle.

The characteristics we commonly call polled wasoften referred to in the old Scottish writings by the terms of"humble," "doddies," "humlies," or "homyl." Two strains were used in the formation of what later becameknowns the Aberdeen-Angus breed of cattle. In the county of Angus, cattlehad existed for some time that were known as Angus doddies. MacDonaldand Sinclair quote the Rev. James Playfair as having written in 1797,"There are 1129 horned cattle of all ages and sexes in the parish. Ihave no other name to them; but many of them are dodded, wantinghorns." This seems to be the first authentic reference to polled cattlein the county of Angus, apart from ancient sculptures. In the area ofAberdeenshire, other polled cattle were found and were called Buchan"humlies," Buchan being the principal agricultural district inAberdeenshire. These cattle were apparently early valued as work oxen,as were most of the other strains of cattle that later acquired variousbreed names. MacDonald and Sinclair believed that polled cattle werefound in Aberdeen in the 16th century, and stated: 2 BreedThreatens the Aberdeen-Angus. In 1810, the Colling brothers ofEngland sold the famous Shorthorn bull Comet at $5,000. The publicityresulting from this sale naturally spread throughout Scotland, and manybreeders looked with favor upon the use of Shorthorn blood in improvingthe native cattle. Subsequently good herds of Shorthorn cattle wereestablished in Scotland, and the cattle were used in the improvement ofnative stock. The use of the Shorthorn cattle on the black native cowswas a very common practice of the period for the raising of commercialstock. This practice of crossbreeding threatened the Aberdeen-Angusbreed with extinction. Two strains were used in the formation of what later becameknowns the Aberdeen-Angus breed of cattle.

Alexander Keith, secretary of the Aberdeen-AngusCattle Society from 1944 to 1955, takes exception to this opinion bywriting: BreedThreatens the Aberdeen-Angus.

Throughout its history, the Red Angus Association of America has maintained this objective focus and has earned a well-deserved reputation for leadership and innovation. Because it has made the right choices over time, ignoring the short-term pressure of industry fads, the Red Angus breed has attained a high level of popularity in the commercial beef industry.
