There is something I hold dear

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!
