Just like dogs, cats, and rabbits, there are different beef cattle breeds. While some of them may look similar, they are quite different genetically, giving them each their strengths and weaknesses. Could we get a vote on which breed is our favorite? Here are the candidates.
Red Angus–often smaller framed (but not always), with well-marbled meat. Good range cow.
Black Angus–Known for their highly marbled steaks. Certified Angus Beef comes from this breed.
Charolais (Shar-lay)–A well muscled breed that is always white. Originates from France.
Hereford–Red with a white face, this breed is known for its hardiness and high quality meat.
Simmental–Muscular breed that grows large and grows quickly. Can also be red colored.
