Probably did the study with grant money and one of the submission statements for the grant was to create new terms to require more beef specialists to educate producers about the new terms.  He did know a few of his colors but missed white, gray and others that are in the Crayola box.  But, what NEW information did he tell you?

Grassy, American calves come from good, honest, hard working, salt of the earth kind of cattle. They tithe 10% of their USDA money to church and another 10% to R-CALF. If you could buy them for what they're worth and sell them for what they think they're worth, you'd make a fortune.

I assume "American" calves refers to Brangus, Beefmaster and Santa Gertrudis as these are considered American Breeds.

Longhorns, Black Herefords and South Polled, too. Wouldn't it be easier to say "ear cattle" if that is what he meant?

That would create confusion with "earless" northern cattle.
