What is white beef?

"Yesterday, I mentioned that "white beef" would be served at the UK's most expensive picnic lunch. This raised the question as to what exactly white beef was. It turns out that white beef is meat from British white cattle, cows that are related to ancient, indigenous cattle that lived in the UK. The cows are exceptionally attractive, with snowy white hides and contrasting black points, and are known for their gentle nature and hardiness. Like many rare breeds, the numbers dropped precipitously low for a time, with only 149 cows left in the breed in the 1960's. Since that time, new herds have been established and the numbers are increasing. Some are even being raised in the US. . .

. . . The beef from these cows is prized not only because the cows are limited in number, but the meat is tasty. It is said to be somewhat leaner than other beef, but with very consistent marbling, which makes the meat juicy when cooked. "
