An excellent Angus cow is the subject
ot this new picture just released by the
American Angus Association
The cow has the femininity and struc
ture to conceive regularly, calve easily
and wean a heavy call at least every 12
She also has the frame, size and
muscling to produce fast growing calves
that will weigh at least 1,100 pounds as
bulls at a year of age And she should pass
this ability along to her daughters
Her sons should sire steer cal\ es that
weigh at least 1,000 pounds at 365 days and
produce an average USDA Choice carcass
or better
If necessary they should also be able
to take longer periods of feeding and con
tinue to gain efficiently, then grade USDA
high Choice or Prime without excess fat.
