Times have certainly changed. The “reds” have gone from being undesirable and discarded for much of the twentieth century, only because of their color, to being a preeminent source of Angus genetics. Red Angus’ fifty year commitment to its founding members’ vision of more efficient beef production through the use of the scientific principles of performance testing has been realized. Due to the numerous natural advantages with which the Red Angus breed is endowed, and based on the heritage it appears that a great breed has come into its own. The future of the breed as the common denominator in progressive cattle producers’ crossbreeding systems is unlimited.
THE RED COLOR OF RED ANGUS HAS THREE DISTINCT ADVANTAGES:
1) Red is the most populous color of cattle breeds worldwide. Red Angus provides a continuity and uniformity of color to any crossbreeding system.
2) Red is more heat tolerant than black and the bronze pigmentation give great resistance to cancer eye and sun burned udders. The majority of the world’s cattle are in areas that need heat tolerance, so the red color is a definite advantage.
3) Being crossed red always breeds true. Red Angus carries no diluter genes and thus avoid the grays that result when crossbreeding with blacks.
