Why? Wasn’t the point of domestication to make herbivores that were convenient to raise for meat? What’s the point of producing a breed that will need ultra-strong ultra-expensive fences and be unherdable by ordinary herding dogs?

That is what I was thinking. Think of the size and type of chute needed to work on a bovine of that size. Think about the type of fencing needed to keep one on the premises; what would be the feed conversion of an animal that big..efficient or inefficient? A horse would be dead meat driving a bull or cow that large and with those instincts for survival.
