I dunno, it may be better to not know, kind of like your family's DNA. I personally don't want to know.

or else...................

+1. I think the primary differences are characteristics that benefit the farmer, not the end consumer. Things like how efficiently a given breed converts grain to meat.

You got that right
Converting five pounds of feed (just used as an example) with one breed compared to a breed that take six, seven, or even more makes a huge difference in the profit margin. Back in my farmer days black angus was considered one of the poorer breeds in the feed to beef department. I don't have any idea where they fit in that department today although I think there would have been some improvement.

I would think then They must do a DNA test to prove to you that you are indeed getting what they advertised and you are paying for. Don't want to pay for Angus and get a chunk of Herford.
Maybe sue over false advertising.

The other breed associations are kicking themselves every day for not thinking up the marketing strategy that the Angus Assoc did. If the Polled Hereford Assoc did it, then everyone would think that the red and whites through the best beef. Grading is what is separates good beef from bad, not the color of the hide... Most of the American breeds are very similar when on a hook, now Wagyu is some crazy looking beef!
