Is it possible that you could have counterfeit Angus calves in your herd? There is a way of being sure that they are all Angus.

When or if you’re buying a group of calves - how can you be sure those black-hides are, in fact, Angus sired? The answer is AngusSource Genetic. Identified by bright, neon-green ear tags - AngusSource Genetic calves have been enrolled in the American Angus Association’s program that documents source, age and a minimum 50-percent Angus genetics: “One of the great things about AngusSource Genetic is that it is still going to verify that they are out of registered Angus sires and one of the big changes is that producers will be able to give us those turn out dates and receive the tags from their enrollment prior to that first calf being born.” The Angus breed boasts the nation’s largest beef cattle registry - and the new AngusSource Genetic program is designed to more closely align with those records
