    Thanks for the pics! Do I see some Zebu in there? Are they primarily for meat, milk, or dual purpose? They seem friendly.

    Yes! Ellie has more Zebu than the others. I'm not a huge fan of the zebu so hopefully with breeding we can minimize that characteristic.

    We don't use them for anything but joy! However, they are meat beef tho, not milkers. We usually grow a few full sized steers for our beef needs. These little ladies are very friendly and curious. They're like 400lb dogs!
