This Bavarian breed
(evidently it is pronounced gelp-fee
) is a fairly standard type of beef cattle
, producing good meat
in a decent variety of climates.
It has short horns and its coat can be any color from yellow to black, although the former is a bit more common.
It also offers ranchers a moderately high feed-to-meat conversion rate, using relatively little food to grow to full size.
