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.

An Angus cow tends to be a very good mother with strong milking ability, good calving ease, excellent ability to forage on her own without much human assistance (in terms of being fed supplements) thus being a good cow to raise on extensive conditions, good fertility and generally good conformation to be used for breeding into her 'teens.

A cow is a cow. Milk is milk. Quantity and butterfat content will vary with each breed. Black angus is a breed. Drink Up!

What Angus cow? There are many different cows from different ranches, all with different reg. #'s. Please be more specific! Check out the American Angus Association website for the Angus cow you are looking for.

Angus is not any part of a cow. Angus is a BREED of "cow" or bovine, specified by the colouration and genetics that determine whether an Angus cow is purebred or not. Angus cattle are always all black, unlike other breeds that have followed the black trend like Simmental, Gelbvieh, Maine Anjou, Charolais, Limousin and Salers who, traditionally are not black. Please see the related links below for more info.

Black. A red tinge is mainly a sign of copper deficiency.

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.

Just two: hand milking and machine milking

Milking a horse is no crueler than milking a cow. In other words, no.

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.

Make sure you've fed the cow before you try milking it

Maybe the farmer or rancher wanted to keep that particular cow along with his black ones. That does happen, you know: a large herd of commercial Black Angus cattle may include a couple Red Angus or Hereford cattle in it.

The Bollywood actress that was on film milking a cow was Priyanka Chopra. She milked the cow during a NDTV Greenathon visit.

A good milking cow is often referred to a cow that gives a lot of milk, and one that lasts for longer than the other cows.

You can either buy one--off a local producer who sells such calves or from your local salebarn--or you can get one yourself by breeding an Angus cow with a Hereford bull (or a Hereford cow with an Angus bull). Even breeding a modern-type Simmental cow with an Angus bull (or vice versa) will get you a black-baldy calf.

Angus is a breed. Heifer is any young female cattle that hasn't had a calf yet. A cow is any female cattle that has had calves. So you can have an Angus heifer that later turns into an Angus cow.
