Trying to remember the name of the breed of beef cow is that’s basically the same as a Brown Swiss, except for being bred for beef traits. Is it genetically the same as a Brown Swiss, just different bloodlines?

Braunvieh. They have digressed from the dual purpose the same as Shorthorns. Milking Shorthorns - Brown Swiss. Beef Shorthorns - Braunvieh. They've been selected for better beef traits but still maintane the same basic qualities, lazy calving, large calves and not very bright.
