Part of the charm of a larger homestead is that there is room for cattle. But what kind?
The answer to this question will depend primarily on why you want to keep cattle. Do you want fresh milk? Grassfed beef? Pulling power in the field? Some of each?
When choosing a breed of cattle, there are other factors to consider as well. Each breed has its own advantages and disadvantages, and what will work well for one family probably won’t suit another.
With this in mind, it is wise to learn about the history, uses, temperament, health, and pros and cons of each breed before making a selection. Hopefully our guide will answer your questions. Enjoy!
