ANGUS = Profit

Meat production compared to standard beef

The data from Food Group RWM published in August 2009 shows that the medium age at slaughtering for pure Angus breed is 19.5 months, this period being with 4.5 months shorter than the production average age for other beef breeds, which is 24 months. This means that farmers can breed in average more cattle per hectare per year and so produce more beef, which is an advantage if we take into consideration the land and fodder prices necessary for cattle, prices that are very high at the moment.
