The Angus breed was developed in the early part of the 19th Century from the polled and predominantly black cattle of North east Scotland known locally as „doddies“ and „hummlies“. As with other breeds of cattle and sheep in Britain, establishment followed improvements in husbandry and transport.

By line breeding and selection for type, the early pioneers established in Angus, Aberdeenshire, Speyside and the Laigh of Moray, the greatest of beef breeds.
