With the choices available and the corresponding claims backed up by the numbers, I thought It might be informative to hear what down side there might be to the cattle that appear to have it all: Lower BW than most of us have ever used with more growth than the average Charolais and more milk than the Dual purpose imports.

Keystone, Best I can tell, the kind of cow you describe, ends up being like a horse, built by Committee, which according to learned sources, would be a camel. Incidentally, the camel, pretty well sums up the likeness of the cow built by numbers. I do not have anything against camels, but I want a horse to be a horse, and a cow to be a cow. You and I speak different languages, but I think I get what your after here, and a camel is what I got, when the numbers said they where the best cow.

Speaking of camels, after 9-11, a local camel herder was approached by a Muslim group to, improve their public image. They wanted to do a camel ride across the US, as a publicity stunt of sorts, and I was signed on for the job, but the deal fell through. It would have been interesting, if not deadly experience, to say the least.

You left out one critical part: bloated looking granddam worth $250,000.
