The Angus Cow- Unsung Hero of Certified Angus Beef

Sat, 08 Dec 2018 16:05:45 CST

The Angus Cow- Unsung Hero of Certified Angus Beef


Mark McCully, Vice President, Production for Certified Angus Beef, calls the Angus Cow the unsung hero for the Certified Angus Beef success story. McCully says her maternal ability is the key- "that Angus cow that was able to breed back and go bring in a heavy calf and mother that calf up and do a great job and still produce a calf that could go to the next level and grow fast and efficient in the feedyard and be able to then produce that high quality carcass in the end- that's been key. You gotta have all three- anyone of those pillars that don't work and we talk a lot about sustainability today- you have a chain that is not sustainable if any one of those things don't work."


McCully also points to the increasing number of pounds in high choice and prime that are being produced today is being absorbed by food service that is growing their sales of Certified Angus Beef. He believes that the genetics back on the ranch that are available to Angus breeders and their customers that buy bulls from them are allowing the CAB brand to grow. He points to the genetic tools developed by the Angus breed as being vital to the future growth of the Angus breed and the future growth that is being projected for Certified Angus Beef.


You can hear McCully's comments from his conversation with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays on this latest edition of the Beef Buzz.
