My neighbor has reds and I have blacks. They appear to have very similar dispositions. He also has Herefords and I can say for fact that Angus, red or black, are much better mommas than Herefords. But as you know, Angus do like to kick so if you have a small herd, work with them on a daily basis if possible. Just give them a treat of hand feed cubes. They'll be much easier to work when you need to do something with them later. Like shots or breeding.
