We used to raise longhorn crosses (had longhorn cows and a limousine bull) that we would use as our roping stock. When they got too big for that, the steers would go to the sale and the heifers would go out to be breeding stock. Most of the heifers/cows were relatively nice. They wouldn't charge or anything, but they could certainly jump about any fence they had a mind to
The steers, on the other hand, weren't usually so nice. We used to have one that we called "Pancake". You didn't dare go into the pen where he was without being on a horse because he was guaranteed to flatten you like a pancake.
