So, is there a difference in fed in fertility and bred in fertility? I think so. Which do you want and which do you sell? I know which one is cheapest to keep on the farm and which one real commercial cattlemen want. What is the purpose of the #2 option?
The word “cheap” is never used on my operation, it’s forbidden. Cheap denotes lack of quality.

The fact that you are focused on the “cheapest” route is quite telling.
My, what a large hyperbole you have, Grandma.

I can put you in touch with some buyers that don’t do anything we do, and they have had plenty of success with our bulls. It would be safe to say they run them pretty hard. Just saying....
Wow this just blows me away. It just does not register with you at all. You are the vendors delight. :clap: :clap:
You should see my cattle, that’s what would really blow you away.
I saw the pics and that was enough. You can have them.

Cheap is relative much like "stupid".

I hope we all can see photos of your herd sometime, detailed ones at that, I’m always interested in seeing how the “real pros” of the industry do things, and what genetics are being used.

I’ve heard you quite the cattleman.

Don’t forget “antiquated”

No not as all. As I had on my sig. line once "I'm just a beggar trying to show other beggars where I found bread". But it's still a fact that even when you show them the bread you can't make them eat it.

I'm just a country boy looking to breed a decent animal, Angus that is....

Some years ago, a prominent animal scientist opined in one of the trade magazines, that "If you're getting a 95+% calf crop...you're probably spending too much money on feed."
I think there's more than a nugget of truth in that.
Penny wise, pound foolish.

Feed is cheap when you consider what I’m producing.

25-30 SAV America 8018 sons pay for a LOT of feed.
That might be the dumbest and most arrogant comment I’ve seen of CT to this point. I always wonder James what it is that you’re trying to accomplish as a breeder. It sounds like your Dad has left you quite a legacy, some really nice cows. But where are you going from here, other than shoving a bunch of yeast in to them. In five years what do you want Brookhill to be known for? I sure hope it isn’t cattle that needs to have the feed poured to them to make them perform. That isn’t going to be a profitable endeavor unless of course your genetics can outrun poor management. And I wonder what is your market? Is it folks who actually care if they get an America son? Do they even care about the pre-fix much less the actual name? Boasting about pouring on feed and supplements is really foolish bragging, for some of us, cattle is just a hobby, my real career can support many foolish decisions I may want to make with my cattle. But for many on here, where their paycheck comes from the cattle they sell your bravado is petty. Many on here have great insight and experience that we have the fortune to glean without cost. And likewise we are able to get information from you we can use in our own operations. But I do ask with all sincerity, where do you want to be in five years?

In a place where my future self thanks me.
