There really is no difference between Angus beef and "regular" beef. Pure Angus beef may have a bit more marbling to it and be a bit more tender, juicy, and (to some) be more bland than "regular" beef, but in reality, a Shorthorn or Speckle Park steer will often have the same sort of marbling quality. Because when the hide comes off, they all look the same.

Black Angus. BUT, the question is poorly phrased, as it requests judgment without specifying the criteria to be judged. Better for what purpose? Better tasting beef? Better breed of beef cattle? Better growing? Better disposition?

Registered angus out number registered herefords by more than 4 to 1.
