Yes, but Angus cattle are beef cattle, not dairy cattle, and are primarily used for raising beef calves, not giving milk to humans like Holsteins are. However, when necessary, an Angus cow can be milked out just like any "regular" cow.
No, a Black Angus cow should not be raised for milk. The Angus breed is a beef breed. Yes, they have an udder but they do not produce an adequate amount of milk to be classified as a milk cow, for family or commercial production. Dairy cows are the only ones that produce the amount of milk ton be considered " a milk cow". These include Holsteins, Jerseys, Guernseys, Brown Swiss to name a few. An Angus cow can only produce 10 to 15 lbs of milk per day, whereas a typical dairy cow has an average milk production of 30 to 40 lbs of milk per day, not ideal for being used as a milk cow.
The breed of cow is irrelevant. However, cattle with horns should not be mixed with cattle without horns. When new cattle are first introduced to a new herd, there will be a lot of excitement and interest in the newcomers but that will soon die down and they usually get along together.
No. There are many other breeds that are all black, such as Kerry, Dexter, black Holsteins, Brangus, Jamaican Black, etc. Charolais, Gelbvieh, Simmental, Maine Anjou, Salers and Limousin also are a breed that have black cattle.
Yes. All cows, no matter what the breed, do produce milk.
In America, yes.

They don't. That has never happened before, and likely never will. When you cross a White Shorthorn cow with a Black Angus bull you will get a grey calf (this is how the Murray Grey breed came about, by the way). The same thing occurs if you put a Black Angus bull on a Charolais cow.
