Why? What has changed in their genotype that will make their beef better? A shift towards lean beef? Their lean beef is really not the issue, it’s the lack of tenderness on their beef that is a hard sell and unless there is a serious shift towards Genetic Marker and EPDs for tenderness on the breed I just don’t see this happening.
Now Composites are a different story because they have the genetic resources(from their British/Continental DNA) to breed for tenderness and marbling markers.
