Angus Link Designed to Show All Black Cattle Are Not Equal

Angus Link Designed to Show All Black Cattle Are Not Equal


Oklahoma breeder John Pfeiffer was recently elected the president of the American Angus Association. In a conversation with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays, he mentioned that he is very excited about some of the projects the breed association is doing on behalf of their membership, including its newest program - Angus Link. The program was launched mid year, but Pfeiffer says it is already having early signs of success.


“The way it stands right now is all black cattle are created equally and we want to show those that are more Angus have a higher carcass ability and higher gain ability,” he explained. “Another part of this will occur in about a year where we will actually be able to score maternal ability on these cows, as well.”


Pfeiffer says the Angus herd has come a long way - even since he first started in the business. He adds that the breed continues to work to improve its genetics with more programs in development even now.


“This is not my grandad’s Angus breed of cattle, or my dad’s breed of cattle,” he said. “It’s not even the same type of cattle I would have started out with. We have lots of tools and we’re working on some new indexes that possibly will eventually be released.”
