About American Angus CattleAbout American Angus Cattle

Sir George Macpherson-Grant brought four Angus bulls, without any cows, to Victoria, Kansas On 17 May 1873. They were the first Angus cattle to come to America. Angus cattle are hornless and were considered odd at the time in the US where most cattle were Shorthorns and Longhorns. However, ranchers noticed the good qualities of the bulls and afterwards, many more cattle of both sexes were imported.

On 21 November 1883, the American Angus Association was founded in Chicago, Illinois. The first herd book was published on March 1885. At that time both red and black angus cattle were registered without distinction. However, in 1917 the Association barred the registering of red and other colored cattle in an effort to promote a solid black breed.

The Red Angus Association of America was founded in 1954 by breeders of Red Angus cattle. It was formed because the breeders had had their cattle struck off the herd book, for not conforming to the changed breed standard regarding.

America Angus is simply Angus cattle in America. Please see the Angus Breed description for more information.
