Registered Angus Cattle

Since 1964, Dr. Curtis and Ann Long have been breeding Angus cattle at Briarwood Angus Farms. Genetics from Wye Plantation formed the base of the original herd. Today, through natural and AI service, genetics for the 220 cow herd are still highly selected for functional, good milking cattle that calve easily, without forsaking growth or carcass quality.
