Simmental Cattle x Angus Cattle Cross


Other name(s):
 SimAngus

Scientific name: Bos taurus

Country / Place of origin: Not known

History: The Simmental has been crossbred with Angus Cattle for high fertility rates, and good quality meat.

Originating from the Simme River region in Switzerland, Simmental cattle are one of the oldest breeds of cattle in the world. They are most common in Europe and are bred worldwide. They were introduced to the United States in the late 1800s but gained popularity only in the late 1960s.

Angus Cattle originated in Aberdeenshire and Angus, Scotland in the 18th century. Angus cattle were first introduced to the United States in 1873. These black hornless animals did not gain popularity until crossbreeding with the Texas Longhorn resulted in good meat quality, less calving problems, and the advantages of polled/hornless cattle (less injuries).
