It is interesting to see how much some breeds have changed. I have a couple of Lowline Angus cows. (I love them) they are essentially what the Angus breed used to be before modern 'improvements' made them bigger and less efficient. I got some 'babydoll' Southdown sheep. To me they are closer to the Southdowns I remember when I first got into sheep-although their wool is better. And having had my first 'heritage' pork, modern pork is not 'improved-at least in flavor!
