Our American Aberdeen cattle are extremely well suited to grass-fed beef production as they are easy fleshing and will finish on a high roughage ration, producing high value carcasses with a minimum of input costs. They are very docile and easy to handle,naturally polled, structurally correct, and early maturing with small frame without the dwarf gene. One very important characteristic is the Ease of calving. Our calves have ranged 35# to 65# . Which allows first time heifer an easier time on their first calving season.
American Aberdeen were developed at the Trangie Research Centre in New South Wales, Australia. Animal Scientists began with a herd of registered Champion Angus cattle, purchased in 1929, that were carefully selected for high quality and small size. The end result was a breed of small, black, polled cattle with pure Angus genetics.
Mature American Aberdeen bulls will generally fall into a range of 42-50 inches measured at the shoulder and weigh from 900-1500 pounds. Mature cows should measure from 42-47 inches and weigh between 700-1100 pounds.
