Also known by: Deutsches-Angus-Fleischrind, Deutsche Angus
Efforts to produce a new, more modern beef breed in Germany led to the crossing of Angus bulls with German Black Pied, German Red Pied and German Simmental. Selection is for hornlessness, good temperament, large size, meat with a lower fat content than pure Angus, and high milk yields.
They are black, dark brown, red or yellow-grey, sometimes with white markings. Females weigh 650 kg; bulls weigh 1,100 kg.
