Breed Statutory Declarations

  • Phenotypic assessments
  • DNA Sampling for Breed genotype composition
  • Supply chain traceability
  • Product traceability through processing
  • Product carton labeling
  • Cattle produced under an approved program covering raising claims**

Successful verification of our Black Angus Beef means our products can display the Angus Beef verification stamp, which signals that our products are verified to meet our standard. The standard is 100% Angus parentage: Angus sire, Angus Dam

*Genotypic and Phenotypic assessment

While the genotype, or genetic makeup of our Angus is of critical importance in our selection process, phenotypic assessment is also significant.

Our animals must be 100% Black Angus, meaning animals packed under the Black Angus Verification program must be entirely black hided, with acceptable white hair around the udder.

This requirement is more stringent than Angus programs overseas where red, white and blue roan hides may be permitted also.

**Raising Claims

The raising claim Angus relates to the production of meat that is derived from animals described as Angus. While other Angus brands comply with the minimum of 75% Angus genetics required to describe an animal as Angus, Rangers Valley Angus have the highest possible percentage of Angus genetics, far exceeding this minimum. In addition, Angus steers must be sired by Black Angus bulls of known pedigree from commercial Black Angus cows and comply with Angus Society of Australia regulations.

Rangers Valley animals are bred to the highest possible percentage of Angus genetics and comply with all Angus Society of Australia regulations.
