There are breeds that in crossbreeding programs are considered maternal breeds, those that can provide replaements. There are those that are terminal, everything gets sold and not replacements are kept. There are even those that are supposedly dual purpose, can go either way. Maternal breeds would be, but not limited to, angus, hereford, gelbviwh, simmenthal, shorthorn, etc. Terminal would be Blonde d'aquataine, charolais, limo., maine anjou, etc.
