The cattle themselves take steps to maintain this genetic equilibrium. "The last calf to be born with a mutation was about 20 years ago, and it was missing its tail. The mother abandoned it and it died within about 24 hours, and that was it. Whatever caused that mutation didn't get passed on."
That was a developmental defect, not a "mutation." And they're cattle, not Borg. They don't make decisions based on what benefits the collective.

Scotland has groovy 1980s New Wave asymmetrical hairband cows.  While most cows moo, they sing "I Could Be Happy."
