I'm betting there are more than 800 different environmental conditions to raise meat and/or milk??
I replaced my draft ox with a tractor.Rolling Eyes 

G/E/N plus environment produces phenotype plus function (thought to use "functional phenotype", but results are often "disfunctional phenotype".

I believe more breeds were created in response to color differences and end product differences than to fit functional environmental differences...prime example, red angus...Piedmontese,Wagyu etc

Color can be maintained in any environment.
End product can and will change with wrong genetics in an environment.

Do we need more breeds than there are types of cattle? I don't think so...
