Top 5 Angus Bulls

Angus cattle have become the dominant breed in America—and for good reasons. Their proven reputation for calving ease and maternal design makes Angus a mainstay for commercial, high-quality beef production in the U.S. and many parts of the globe.

ABS Global’s strong lineup has proudly featured the best-selling bulls in the Angus breed for 22 of the last 29 years based on registrations through the American Angus Association. Look to ABS for the best Angus bulls that will deliver on the most desirable traits. Whether you need Calving Ease, Docility, Fertility, Carcass Quality, Longevity, or Maternal Traits, we have the Angus sire to meet your requirements. Consider these future breed leaders.

The PATRIARCH of the Lineup

PATRIARCH is the definition of strength and direction. He brings a bullet-proof maternal pedigree with power, data, and phenotype to produce both quality females and in-demand, high satisfaction sons. While his calving ease is commendable and his massive appearance is worth appreciating, you will also find his structure very sound along with exceptional foot quality. 

  • Bullet proof maternal pedigree with the power, data and phenotype to produce both quality females and in demand, high satisfaction sons
  • The all-time record setter from the Tehama program that has relentlessly pursued and been focused on maternal output coupled with end product merit
  • Beyond his calving ease and massive appearance, you will appreciate PATRIARCH for his sound structure and foot quality
  • His grandsires, HOOVER DAM and Connealy Thunder are both recognized as superior female sires that consistently transmit sound foot structure and excellent teat and udder quality

Add PATRIARCH genetics to your line-up for ultimate quality and balance.  

Fireball: Number One By a Wide Margin

FIREBALL is the first and only high accuracy sire in the industry to surpass the +400 $Combination barrier, and he continues to surpass all expectations for both performance and phenotypic quality. For the following EPD and indexes, Marbling, $Beef, $Combined, and $Grid, FIREBALL ranks more than one standard deviation ahead of his next closest competitor and on average has more than twice as many carcass records as the #number two bull. 

  • Among sires with a minimum of 10 progeny carcass records, FIREBALL ranks first for Marbling, $Grid, $Beef and $Combined, and in each case his advantage over the second bull is greater than one full standard deviation. 
  • 21 of 22 FIREBALL steers in a recent structured progeny test graded Prime while also posting the largest rib eyes and heaviest carcass weights in a 98 head contemporary group 
  • Much more than a carcass sire, FIREBALL is a proven multi-trait leader that also excels for calving ease, performance and feed efficiency 
  • Progeny continue to be among the most consistent and well received sire groups across the country

JAMESON fits the bill as a highly anticipated and extremely marketable sire with breed leading data and powerful phenotype.

  • He combines tremendous data across the board with powerful, and near flawless phenotype 
  • Exceptionally long bodied, strong topped, deep in the fore rib, and correct in his foot and leg structure
