Angus are moderate-sized, muscular animals, renowned as a carcass breed. They are used widely in crossbreeding to improve carcase quality and milking ability. Angus have a propensity to marble, and to have white fat and bright-red lean meat. A poll breed, they are also used as a genetic dehorner. They are solid black in color but a small amount of white is permitted on the underline, behind the navel scar.
