Beyond that, I can't guess as I'm not terribly familiar with the dairy industry. There is a dairy farm about an hour from me and every year, they put up a sign by their gate that advertises Holstein bull calves for sale. I don't know what they do with the ones that aren't sold by that method.

Several times I've thought about getting 4-5 of them to raise up for beef...and use them to help train my dogs in the winter. A Holstein isn't a great beef producer, but just for my family it would be good enough...and at $50-$75 each, that's a lot cheaper than an Angus calf would be.

Here's one for $20, they're a dime a dozen around here, would probably be worth it. I've heard that there is a taste difference with beef from males? Is this true? Does anyone know?

I know that the meat from dairy breeds tastes slightly different than from beef breeds, but I've never heard about a difference in flavor between heifers and steers of the same breed.

I had heard once that there is a difference in taste as a function of excess testosterone if the bull wasn't gelded. I don't know if it's called being gelded for a bull, but we'll go with that. Interesting. Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programming, folks!

Cute little guy. But, it looks to me like he's a cute little dapple grey, and not a black roan. I'm not an expert though.

Can I chime in on this dairy cow thing for a minute? Sorry for derailing the thread once again.
I grew up on a dairy farm and fed the 50-70 calves when I was a teenager. Bull calves are absolutely worthless to the dairy industry. We had a guy who would come every Wednesday with his truck to pick up all the bull calves, which were destined for veal. Not sure how it tastes as I've never eaten dairy beef myself.
The guy paid $5 a head for them.
The bull calves don't get colostrum at all, it's saved for the heifers. Nor do they get the routine vaccinations that the heifers got. A lot of them died because they didn't get the attention the heifers got. They are all separated at birth, the cow is milked of her colostrum and then sent to the milking herd.
