Steak on a plate

The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is brought to you by generations of America’s farming and ranching families, determined to raise the very best beef for your family and theirs. They work hard to produce Angus beef of the highest quality that can earn the brand’s premium mark. In order to bear our logo, beef must first qualify for USDA Choice or Prime grades, then meet the Certified Angus Beef ® brand’s additional quality standards. It’s the best beef available.
