The Top Ten
1 Angus

Angus are the best! Very good with calving and their meat. I have an angus to show this year she's amazing!

Best beef out there. I really like a angus herford cross. Have been raising these for years and have always had great daily gains and carcass yields.

My pet cow black jack

Anus is the best!

2 Charolais
3 Red Hereford

Gentle and patience with their calves.

Quiet, calm, easy to work with.

4 Simmental

These cattle have just about everything. They can be used for labor, meat, dairy, and have a high rate of twins which is a plus

Love the breed. Good to have. Will invest in it one day.

I have two to show and they are awesome.

5 Beefmaster

These are the perfect breed for those who depend on cattle to make a living. They are very adaptable to any adverse conditions and have proven themselves to be a hardy breed.

6 Scotch Highland

These cows are fence breakers! I have had several different breeds these are the only breed so far I will never have again!

7 Brangus

A close running mate with the Angus. This cow is half Angus and half Brahman and is a very popular breed in the United States

8 Gelbvieh

Gelbvieh genetics have extra meat, extra milk and great weaning weights.
They also have a quiet nature. Gelbvieh are a cattleman's dream breed.

This German cow is a farmers gold mine. These cows have superior fertility and achieve sexual maturaty at a young age. They can breed very fast and make a farmer a lot of money

9 Holstein

Most popular dairy breed, They also hang good on the meat hook for the steers. A higher percentage of your "beef" is dairy.
