It seems to me that people on here are looking for one breed to do it all. I want who breeds my bulls to have huge cows and big ww year and $g. Do I want my bull breeders cows on my commercial operation of course not. One reason is because as a commercial guy I would not want a full blood any breed female only crossbred. So for a while now we make replacements that are 1/2 gert and half Hereford and breed to either Angus or Brangus Bulls. I want my cows 1250 to 1400 and we have to use certain type of bulls for that but my terminal bulls I want them fed and from huge sires and huge dams as long as their calves finish within the box limits.

I had no clue we were talking about your cows.
I thought we were talking about sim-yaks?

Sim-yaks are Sherpa approved for elevations over 3000 feet.
I found some Sim-Yak crosses. Saw them on a Facebook group.

Just saw a pic on facebook with I believe simmx cow, which had charx triplets. Two bulls and one heifer. At 7.5months age bulls weighed 695lbs and 728lbs, heifer 695lbs. Cow not a small one... A small one wouldn't hold such pressure, I think.

I live in the village since my birth. There always been a cows in our small household, in the last four years they became our main type of income. We have never had such a livestock population as now. There is not much of the place left in the barn, we want to order a bigger one on
