Tyson goes all-Angus for top brands

Tyson Foods said it is going to use only Angus-certified beef for its top brands – Chairman’s Reserve.

Chairman’s Platinum Reserve will be cut from the upper third of the USDA Choice Angus beef category.

Tyson said 96 per cent of Americans associate Angus with quality.

Do they know that not all black cattle are Angus? 

In fact, I would bet that not even 15 per cent would qualify on DNA testing as purebred Angus. And I doubt there is much, if any, DNA testing by those who grant Angus-certified status to cattle.
