Aberdeen Angus Rib Eye Steak

This world famous Scottish beef breed has its origins in the dedication of its early breeders. Hugh Watson (1780-1865) from Keillor in Angus is regarded as having ‘fixed’ the breed. He sold stock to William McCombie (1805-1880) of Tillyfour, in Aberdeenshire, who continued breeding.  The Aberdeen-Angus Cattle Society was set up in 1879.
