Holsteins are a breed of dairy cattle, but I ran into a guy who raises them on his ranch for beef. The two biggest selling points for him were the excellent marbling of the meat and the docile nature of Holsteins. What do you guys think? Is there a demand in the market for this type of meat?

Holsteins contribute to a significant percentage of beef supply in most countries, so you may want to confirm if this is the case around your area. If there is a lot of demand, you can try approaching a few packers and see if they are interested in a steady supply.
