New to the forum and new to cattle

Post by northerner » Sat Jan 04, 2020 8:28 pm

As the topic states I am new to the forum (registration vise) and new to the cattle. That's being said I've been reading this forum for a while now.

Myself from Northern Ontario, used to raise sheep in the past, but made a switch to beef cattle (bottle calves) few months back, and have to say I enjoy raising cattle much more.

In Australia a lot of people are switching back to sheep, wool that is as exclusion fencing to keep the dingoes at bay and good wool prices are making it more attractive.

I've heard it too, and definitely need less infrastructure with the sheep.

My reasoning for the switch was faster turn around with the bottle beef calves. I hope I am not wrong. :roll: With sheep based on my experience the first year is more or less a break even and second year is when you see profits.
