Texas Show Steer Breed Classification Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • With as many as 16 breeds and breed-cross classes in Texas shows, classifying the breed of a show steer is not always easy. Show steers are sorted into breed classes based on visual characteristics, which is often a matter of judgment. This publication lists the visual characteristics of Angus, Hereford, Polled Hereford, Red Angus, Shorthorn, American Breeds Cross, Brahman, Brangus, Santa Gertrudis, Simbrah, Charolais, Chianina, Limousin, Maine Anjou and Simmental steers.
