PHOTO CREDITS: Bovine phenotypes. These closely-related and similarly-aged Nebraska Angus are both quite healthy and vibrant but they show quite interesting differences in structure. Look at the width across the brisket, the depth of frame, even the width of the face and jaw. The individual on the right exhibits true "grass genetics". This width is what we are looking for in grass-fed.
