Cattle Industry

Is Always Changing

Farmers and agricultural scientists are always looking for ways to breed cattle that grow larger, have fewer health issues, and taste better.

Herefords originated in England, but have quickly become recognized as a core American cattle breed.

Cousin to the famous Black Angus cow, red angus cattle are more ideal for warmer temperatures in the U.S., so you’ll find them more in southern states where things get hotter.
