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.

You know I would try it just to prove it could be done, right?

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

High and dry. Hot as a firecracker. Finally got to see the cows yesterday after a week or so. Had them on self-pilot until I had time. Rotated them from fescue to fescue. Sounds like dull dining to me but they seemed to like it. They're doing good.

We are doing the same but it hasn’t gotten too terribly hot yet.

I remembered that I took these pictures a couple months ago. Most of the cows in the picture are Angus. There were more reds and Charolais but these is the pictures that shows the hill the best. Not a single Yak or Yak cross on the hill side. Also not a single cow weighing over 1,400 pounds. I took it from my irrigated field looking up the hill. There are miles of pasture here that looks like this. Some steeper.
