F1

Post by circlebllc » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:53 pm

Found local guys who raise Red Angus and Hereford cows and bulls. Picked up a couple F1's that are covered by a Red Angus. Others are pure bred Red Angus. Most were with calf. $1750/hd. 1st calf heifers. Pretty happy with disposition and looks. Mostly am trying to upload pics via Google photos. https://photos.app.goo.gl/TDJa6ykccJV6Lm9H7

I'm expecting F1 red baldy calves in two months. Red Angus cows bred to Hereford bulls. I'm hoping they'll be heifers.

You bought a black baldy bull with no plan?

Hey Walnut, you need to answer the guys' questions in your own thread.

The best thing to put him on would be a meat hook

Got some Hereford cow x angus bull females. Cull a few for low milk, and then have very good cows. Hard to beat for a commercial herd.
Got some Hereford cow x Limi females. Very attentive mothers, slower to mature, and often keep growing till they are 1600#. Look like front pasture cattle but not recommended for efficiency. Good resale. ;-)
Got some baldy cow x simi bull females. Some are not attentive mothers, more milk, big calves, don't winter as well as baldies. Hard to beat for feeders. Trying to sort off some for replacements, but many have too much growth for my system.

Black baldy bulls are common in my state, judging on Craigslist. Not much demand for the F1 black baldy bulls as herd bull, even tho I sold a black baldy bull calf as a herd bull last fall. That said I'd rather breed him to black cows of any breeds.

I don't have any "meat hooks" available, so I guess I will just have to man up and find something to put on him. thanks for the honest answer

I would find a some Charlois and sell the smoke calves as feeders a couple weeks after weaning them. Smokes sell really well around here. Ideally you would want black baldie heifers from an angus cow and Hereford bull then find a good terminal Charlois bull.

Fancy black steers typically top the market at Bluegrass every week.

Why not work on that?

Go straight for the highest price steers, it costs no more to raise them than the others.

My advice?

1 -- Disregard all advice relating to maximizing your profit per animal.
2 -- Think hard about implementing any advice that relates to maximizing your profit per acre.
3 -- Make sure you understand, deeply, the difference between the two (profit per animal vs. profit per acre).

Because gfarms already has a baldy bull.
