We can safely ignore A and B because of lack of parallelism.

Between C, D and E, C is wrong as it makes no sense.
Dand E are quite close. D is passive and does not indicate the acquisition process. E is acceptable, although I am not very comfortable with it either.
I will go with E

I think D is the correct answer.

D says "partly because certain" and "partly because crossbreeding". Both of these are parallel.

C is wrong because it implies that farmers are forced to crossbreed because their steers are acquiring strange characterstics(Although I wouldnt blame them with all the mad cow disease j/k)

Thanks!

Damn you are right, I forgot passive voice does not exist in the GMAT, I stand corrected. I would place my bets on E.
