The Natural Choice

The Original Black Polled Canadian Angus

The first Aberdeen-Angus cattle were imported from Scotland to Canada in the 1860's and 1870's with the first recognized birth of a calf recorded in North America in 1877 at Guelph Ontario. The Canadian Aberdeen Angus Association was formed in 1905, incorporated in 1906 and has played a vital role in Canada's beef industry ever since.

Canadian Red Angus, "The Cow Makers"

The Red Angus movement in Canada was officially set in motion in 1968, when the Canadian Aberdeen-Angus Association herd books were opened to Red Angus cattle. Their outstanding growth and world-wide acceptance accounts for a 40% increase in registrations over the past three years.
The red factor that results in Red Angus is a recessive gene from the early development of Black Angus in Scotland. Essentially, the only difference between Red and Black Angus is that all Red Angus cattle registered in Canada must have the word "Red" as a prefix in their name.
