These are mature COWS, if the OP represented them correctly.
They ought to be able to deliver a good calf...no need to limit them to a lbw/calving ease bull suitable for use on virgin heifers.

I'm prepared to give it a go.Rmc wrote: ↑Sat Jan 25, 2020 10:38 amMost of those who say not to raise highland cross cattle have never raised them or tasted the beef.
My highland cross calves sell for the almost ,if not the same price as my dads angus cross calves. The also require less feed in put then many other breeds especially during winter to maintain body condition .wich means less hay feed,reducing cost per cow .the meat is excellant tasting.f
If you would like to try it i would suggest using a black highland bull.i prefer the older traditional more muscular types then some of the newer types.they older type will produce more pounds of meat from the same size frame
