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.
