In 1742, there was no such thing as cattle that could efficiently convert feed into bulk. Such a thing simply hadn’t been necessary before. But as industrialization pulled more people to cities and led to rapid population growth, something of a revolution was needed, and farmers from Herefordshire County in England provided it. They founded a hardy breed that could grow quickly by eating grass and grain, thereby allowing the farmers to quickly and efficiently provide food for growing populations. In those days, the cattle grew to over 3,000 pounds, but today’s versions aren’t quite as large, trading greater efficiency for bulk. Herefords came to the US in 1812, and mixing with western longhorn cattle allowed that even tougher breed to become more efficient, and most importantly, tastier.
