The Angus Cow

There is something that I hold dear
     It’s a roomy black matron that I revere

Rugged, but feminine is this beast
     Extremely adaptable, to say the least

It’s the Angus cow of much renown
     There is no equal to be found

She’s maternal and fertile, and easy to calve
     A quality that is certainly good to have

Her calves are vigorous and jump to their feet
     And when fed-out, yield high quality meat

She’s easy to care for with maintenance minimal
     And contrary to belief, she is very gentle

On what she is fed I’ve seen other types try
     Their competition lags – Of that I don’t lie

But this cow, comes through with great zeal
     Does it with ease and preserves eye-appeal

If you ask why it’s Angus I feed
     It’s basically the cow – She’s the strength of the breed!
