    There are many breeds and sizes of cattle. What do you want to do with them and how much space do you have?

    Like with chickens, you need to know what you want them for before you decide on a breed. Do you want beef only? Milk? Both? How much space do you have?

    If I had land I would get irish Dexters or Dutch Belted [​IMG]

    Quote:What information you have gotten none cause you did not say what you want a cow for or answer anyones questions to give you the best possible fit. The only recommendation was an angus and probably not the best cow for a beginner if you are which we assume if your asking for the best cow to raise.

    It would be helpful to give more information so we can give you our opinions on the best choice.
