Crossbreeding has been proved beneficial in passing of the meat qualities to the progeny. The slaughter yield is approximately 61%. The feed expenses in order to gain 1 kg of weight correspond to 6,5 feed units. The beef is characterized by supreme marbling (presence of intramuscular fat) and tenderness, and is juicy, finely fibred and is exceptionally delicious, especially for preparation of steaks. The Aberdeen Angus’s meat is naturally inclined to developing intramuscular fat and this together with the correct rearing and battening make the highest category of marbled meat – completely and wholly inlaid with the finest thin fat layers and fibers resulting in a very juicy and tender beef.
