The terminal breeds of cattle are those breeds that have been developed for beef production, with the primary focus on growth and carcass yield. The main frame size is generally large and the animal is usually capable of producing a large amount of lean meat.
Here are some of the common terminal breeds:

Terminal breeds of cattle are breeds that are generally used for beef production. In contrast, “intermediate” or “filler” breeds are used for crossbreeding to improve the quality of other breeds.
Here are some of the most well-known terminal breeds:
Common Terminal Cattle Breeds
Here is a list of the most common terminal beef breeds:
There are many different types of cattle, but most fall into the two main categories: terminal and dual-purpose breeds. Terminal breeds were developed by crossing British Shorthorns with other breeds. The resulting animals were bred for maximum beef production, usually on large farms with ample pasture and water resources. As such, they are known for their ability to gain weight quickly on grass diets and produce well-marbled cuts of meat. These cattle tend to be more docile than dual-purpose cattle and often have a more refined appearance.
Dual-purpose breeds were developed by crossing British Shorthorns with Spanish fighting bulls (also known as “razor backs”). This created animals that were good at both producing milk and growing meat. These cattle tend to be more aggressive than terminal breeds, but they also offer higher milk production potential and some have been used in the development of new dairy breeds like Holsteins or Jerseys.
Cattle are the most common type of livestock raised in the United States. They were first domesticated in Asia around 10,000 years ago, where they have been bred for their meat and milk.
The original wild cattle species was Bos primigenius, but there are now many different breeds of cattle that have been developed over time. The American Angus Association estimates that there are more than 3 million head of Angus cattle in the United States.
Here is a list of some of the most popular breeds of cattle:
This breed originated in Scotland and was first imported to America in 1873. It is known for its excellent quality beef production ability and its hardiness in harsh conditions. It has a red coat with white spots.
This breed originated in England and was first imported to America in 1774. It produces large amounts of lean meat with minimal fat content, but it is not well suited for cold weather climates because they are not very resistant to cold temperatures. They have a black coat with white markings on their head and legs.
