Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of your favorite breed.
George thank-you for helping with the spelling. Capt asked what constitutes the difference between abreeder and a multiplier. To me it would be the ones that stood the test of time. Any cattleman that thier famly has sold reg. cattle of the same breed over 50 years are breeders. The rest of are just trailing behind . The multipliers are the mix breed sales and jonny come lately.

Breeders come and go. The most numerical breed in Australia would be Angus Brahman, Hereford (Polled and Horned combined) and Santa Gertrudis.
Angus and Brahman have been the two main breeds that have continued to grow. Two smaller breeds on the rise are Lowline and Dexter. The South Devons with which I'm involved has declined in members since I started 20 year ago. There were 180 full members in the SD Society (now there would barely be 50) The SD Association (which I'm a member of ) is continuing to grow because of low cost membership and no female inventory.
