We specialize in Aberdeen Angus which was called Lowline Angus Cattle until recently when the American Lowline Registry decided to change the breed name to Aberdeen Angus. We are one of a few authorized breeders in Maryland. Aberdeen cattle are good natured cattle that thrive on a grass diet. Grass fed beef has an excellent flavor, texture and tender beef characteristics.
Aberdeen cattle were developed at the Trangie Research Centre in New South Wales, Australia as Lowline Angus. 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.
Average size mature cows generally weigh about 650 to 950 pounds and stand from 36 to 42 inches at the shoulder. Average size mature Aberdeen bulls weigh from 950 to 1350 pounds and stand from 39 to 46 inches.
The average birth weight of Fullblood calves is 42 to 48 pounds. Aberdeen Angus Cattle are also a perfect choice for small acreage farmers. Their small size makes them easy to handle and minimizes equipment requirements.
Their feed efficiency improves the carrying capacity of a farm. They produce exceptional quality beef. They are ideal show animals for 4-H and other youth projects bringing in the next generation of cattle people. They may also offer the tax advantages of an agriculturally based property and business.
