Ill give you some credit there. I think i posted somewhere on this sight that although i like angus, im not a huge supporter of the CAB. a lot of people think that bc we raise angus that we love the CAB. some do im sure. I dont really care for it. If they incorporated the AngusSource program into the CAB id be sold. That way the cattle would have to be 50% registered angus. Notice i said registered, not PUREbred. But as it is now, if its partly black, it passes. I dont know this, but id bet that the majority of cattle that go through the CAB dont even have angus in them, or very little. There are A LOT of other good breeds out there, and they dont need the angus in them to make them good. And i 100% agree that no breed is perfect. Far from it.
On this we agree. As Cattlemen we have failed as everyday good cattle get discounted because of color not quality.
This boils down to robbery with me and it is our fault for letting it happen and not sticking together.
Due to health and drought I got out of the seedstock side you can't do it with 10 cows left after the drought.
I put Obama in the pasture to maximize profit to the nut's as the heifers bring a premium as replacements and the steers at the barn. This is not the most efficent cross for here, but this is what the buyers have bought into.
Just like the guys have bought into papers and epd's as gospel and not a tool, nothing replaces a discerning eye.
