For me, the breed isn't as important as how a cow is raised and how my natural beef will taste. In the end, the most important thing is to get grass fed beef because the taste is better. Besides, it is better for the cow and better for you. I found some wonderful information on this at <a href="http://www.lacensebeef.com/why-la-cense.aspx">La Cense Beef</a>. La Cense has some great natural beef and some great information on why grass fed beef is the way to go.
Well although I agree with some of your post I still dislike spammers

I know this thread has not been posted in for a while, but I have been checking out Normandy cattle. They look to be good for both beef and dairy and are great for grass fed. Any thoughts?

my experience is they are nice dual purpose animals but I don't know about a "homestead" cow. They can be VERY high strung! Especially the milking cows- they don't produce a ton, which is fine, and their calves seem to grow very fast and muscular, but wow, every cow I have dealt with on the farm are flighty, high-strung and kickers- JMO-

Thats too bad that you have found them to be flighty and kickers. Thre is a guy close to me that has them as beef cattle and they seem pretty easy going, but he doesn't have them as milk animals. They have great udders and the calves are big and meatie.

If you only want a milk cow and put a beef in freezer? Jersey are great. Make sure you have AI tech available or a bull close enough to take her to be bred. For almost 30 years I kept a few Jersy and either bred to a full Jersey or a Polled Hereford or Angus bull. For a one cow or a beginner I don't recomend keeping any breed of bull. I had knowhow and equipment and used a Jersey bull on our beef heifers. Bull calves were steered and heifers went back into our Angus beef herd. Bred back to an Angus those 50/50 cows raised a fat black calf.

An old post....
I haven't seen you post in a long time Royd. I hope the world is treating you well.

(Note, that La Cense Beef all natural internet sold beef has closed their website and shut down the business...which is a blessing in disguise, as BYH wasn't nearly the only place it's products were being hawked and spammed at)

If there are organic cattle breeds, it stands to reason there are also inorganic breeds...Are those inorganic breeds (you know...the traditional bovine breeds that have been around your whole life) made of plastic or some kind of metal or maybe 'space age carbon fiber? Whipped off the end of an assy line from a corn starch fed 3D printer?
Does their poop not stink or draw flies--or are the flies it draws also 3D printed products and make little whirring noises as the tiny servos move back and forth and solar cell charged batteries operate their wings? Like Bubo...the mechanical owl from Clash of the Titans movie...
