We raised mainly two breeds of cattle Holsteins and Chalet and I have seriously has issues with the chalet. These are undoubted beautiful cattle with a commercial success rate but they are Not looking for friends!
I have been charged uncountable times loading and moving them. I have been charged at the livestock market! They are very skiddish and not people friendly. There are some that have a good temperament but mostly a very skiddish temperamental breed. If you do not mind the bipolar effect when working with these cattle then who am I to judge. Personally I think I lean more toward the Angus for beef and Holstein for dairy.
I am too old to jump fences and dive under moving trucks now!
