Angler Cattle

Angler Rind a. Z.

Angler Cattle are very robust and have no problem with difficult climatic conditions.The area of production is the peninsula Angeln in the north of Schleswig-Holstein. The first written reference to angler beef is from the 16th Century. Because of the high fat content of their milk from 5.4%, the Angler Cattle used to be called the ‘German Buttercow’. Also the protein content is very high and the majority of the male cattle are carriers of the kappa casein gene, so the milk has beneficial properties for a good quality cheese. The meat is tender, marbled with fat and has a good water holding capacity.
