In the early 1900's Angus were imported to the island of Jamaica. Breeds which with
zebu breeding were already in use so naturally the zebu were mated with the imported
Angus. The result is a breed more similar in appearance to Brangus than Angus. The
breed is 1/4 to 3/8 zebu. They are polled and have a slight cervical hump. Jamaica
Black cattle also have more skin in the dewlap and underline than Brangus.
