showing allows you to talk to breeders. this message is to the person who implyed i'm an idiot. I talked to many angus breeders at the show because i was interested at trying the breed at the royal show. he said that the angus can be broken in though it takes time because the angus don't mellow out until they get to about 14 mths. Red angus may be called red angus but they are a totally different breed character all together. so don't tell me i'm an idiot, i do my homework unlike you who goes by assumptions! The best time to break in a show animal is weaning time so if you have it in the yard you can break it in and be able to supervise how he or she is eating. RED ANGUS AND BLACK ANGUS ARE DIFFERENT!
