That's why I asked. For flavor the very best meat I've ever had was from a Gelbvieh. The very toughest meat I ever had was from the same steer. Ended up having to grind the steaks, even the fillets. For tenderness it was the Simmenthal angus, decent flavor but nothing like the Gelbvieh.hillsdown":2gz7s9kp said:dun":2gz7s9kp said:Then you get to the evaluation of what is "best".

For all of the above it was a 28 month old Holstein steer that I raised from day one and finished it myself. We still talk about him (including anyone friends that ate him at a dinner party we had ). Everything was amazing about the meat all cuts even the ground beef was really flavorful all by itself.
His a hanging weight was ridiculous as well I have to look it up but it was around 1200lbs.
The 18 month old Holstein steer I did last year is really really good as well but not the same as that guy his hanging weight was around 749 lbs.
:nod: Holstein was the best I've ever had. But the steer that those steaks came from did not look like a Holstein when he finished out. If I would have dyed his hair I could have passed him off as Angus.novaman":3jwrkubg said:Holstein
