Though I have raised steers in past lives, thus is our first here at SE. T-bone was acquired at three days old. He is a Guernsey Holstein cross. Some people do feel dairy steers are suitable to raise up for beef. I have done both in the past with good results plus the price of a dairy steer around here is drastically cheaper than a tradition beef breed.
Our boy has grown a wee bit and will be ready for the freezer in the spring.
Ribeye like to keep little man in line....
