Seriously? We are talking cattle here! America's meat supply!
Do we really think that the world will stop eating beef because there's an image in their head of a nice square, deep bodied well conditioned "fluffy" steer versus a lethargic, staggering, fifteen year old boner?
We are selectively, cautiously and moderately introducing some of the genetics of these "fluffy cows" into our commercial herd and are seeing good results. Sure, the show industry can be about extremes but there can be some positives taken out of it that will benefit the beef industry.
But ultimately I guess my main thought is "Since we even have time to discuss this, does this mean calving season is over"?
