I grew up with beef cattle. Angus.
As an adolescent, I owned my own bull and cows.
They are so easy to care for. Just good pasture and running water is all they need.

I know a lot about dairy cows but never owned my own. Grandfather and neighbors had some.

Beef cattle aren't really in the pet category but I had a steer I could walk up to and pet. One must have closer contact with dairy cows. That's not necessary with beef breeds.
None of my livestock have been pets.

Yeah sometimes it's hard when you don't have contact with the calves when they are young. We are always right there with our calves from the dairy cows, so they are always really tame. But the calves from our beefy cows are wild!
