Old South Angus Producers are Raising Calves Yielding High Quality Carcasses for the CAB Program

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 15:02:43 CDT

Old South Angus Producers are Raising Calves Yielding High Quality Carcasses for the CAB Program Cattle are widely adaptable to thrive in different climates. But regardless of those characteristics, consumers want one thing- consistent, high-quality beef - and they are willing to pay for it. One area of the country where you can find excellent weather much of the year to raise a high quality calf are the southeastern and gulf states.

Animal scientist Larry Corah, who recently retired from the Certified Angus Beef Program, tells viewers in a Angus produced video that calves from the traditional Old South have greatly improved, to the credit of area producers. Corah says "the southeastern part of the United States is a very important part of the country in terms of number of calves produced and a big part of the beef industry in terms of their contribution to the total supply. Historically Southeastern cattle probably have some negativity associated with them and maybe fair or unfair, but that has really changed in recent years. The producers in that area have done a tremendous job of improving the quality of those cattle so when they are hanging on the rail their quality grade is so much better than it used to be 10 and 15 years ago."
