Questions and Answers About Angus Beef Cattle
Here are some common questions people ask about Angus beef cattle and the cuts of meat available from Easton View Angus. If you have any additional questions about our herd, our practices, or the farm, please feel free to send us an email or call us.
Most people know about Angus beef cattle today because of it’s growing popularity in restaurants. The reason Angus has become so popular with chefs and restaurants is because the cattle naturally have more meat than other breeds and have well-distributed marbling of fat in the meat.
Marbling is the fine flecks of fat that are found within the muscle. The more marbling there is within a cut of meat the juicier and more flavorful it will be.
Our breeding program utilizes artificial insemination to ensure the best available genetics for growth and carcass merit. One of the desired genetic traits we target is marbling. We also raise our cattle on a strict vegetarian diet.
Everything about our Angus beef cattle is all natural. Our herd is pasture raised and only given natural feeds such as farm-raised hay, corn silage, and haylage.
