This breed is used for beef suckling and vegetation management. They are unicoloured black or red and always naturally polled. The breed is known by its easy calving and good nature.
In Germany the breed has been consolidated since 1990 and is recorded since 2002 in one stud book together with Aberdeen Angus. Angus cattle are still imported, mainly from the U.S.A., for further refinement.
