Black angus We have always admired Black Angus cattle, in fact we started our Red Angus herd in 1970 with the purchase of Black Angus heifer calves. By the fall of 1994 we had watched, studied and seen enough Black herds, that we knew the time was right to MOVE BACK TO THE FUTURE and invest in Black Angus. Each year we move closer to our goals as we expand our numbers. We would like to thank Ray and Lorraine Danyluk of Banana Hill Farm who co-operate on our Black Angus program.
