    I grew up on a dairy so I love Holsteins, but now if I were to get a dairy cow it would be a jersey.
    I just really hate basterdize dairy cattle with beef cross bred.

    I don't raise cattle and have no plans to do so, but my grandpa has always had steers on the place. Most are Corriente type and really attractive animals. Personally I love Jerseys and Brahmas, though if I ever was to get cattle it would probably be a Brahma cross. Or the zebu (mini brahma) if I'm really indulging my dreams. :)
