Actually my cattle breed is Jersey. I have two Jersey cattle breed. It is the bulls are known for having the least docile temperament of the common breeds of cattle. The cattle is quite small, ranging from only 800 to 1200 pounds (360 to 540 kg). Jersey cow produces milk more efficiently than other breeds.
I want your view guys. Tell me which is your Favourite cattle breed?

Abdur, looking foreward to seeing some pictures of your cattle.
Peterpiper, I used to milk Jerseys on improved pastures in the tropics, at this time we started a program of crossbreeding to a local Sanga breed, to deveop a heat resistant breed capable pf producing off native pasture, for local peasant farmers. This composite was working very well when I left the program.

My favorite breed would be Speckle Park. I've not raised them before, but would like to if/when I can. Another favorite is Shorthorn. We've had some stocker shorthorn steers before, and they were quite tame, just about the point of being annoying. But speckle park cattle are really neat cattle...

Wildrose, is it just the appearance of the Speckled Park cattle that you like, or are there apects of their productivity that impress you? (ability to do well off grass etc?)

Rhodie: Both, actually. I've heard lots of good things with the Canadian Speckle Park, from the fact that they're docile, great on grass/rangeland and very hardy to good mothers with great calving ease to their excellent carcass characteristics that is competitive to Angus. And yes, they're certainly pretty to look at! :lol: What I don't like about them is that they are not selling for cheap, they're not all that popular (hence the pricey-ness), and there seems to be a bit of variation in certain strains; some are more dairy-ish than others, for instance. But other than that, they look to be some nice animals.

Another growing favorite is Galloway, a very hardy breed that shares same/similar characteristics to the SP above.
