    Replacements Heifers

    OT, part of what you are saying is true but part isn't. Yes they will cut out a red steer if in a load of blacks, that part is true.

    Replacements Heifers

    I purchased on order last week at Phillip Livestock Auction where they sold several thousand commercial calves of all kinds. The calves I purchased were nearly purebred Red Angus, weighed 500 lbs and brought $2.60/lbs. While feeder heifers were around $1.80/lbs. I saw a group of 525 lbs...

    Too small or just right ?

    Along with what I wrote above, we need to understand your environment. If you are further south, the animals will naturally be smaller compared to the animals in the north, not just livestock, but nearly all animals.

    Too small or just right ?

    Here is an article I wrote after researching this subject. The 1400 lbs cow vs the 1100 lbs cow There seems to be a huge push in the industry right now to make your cows small. We are told they are more efficient and you will make more money off a small cow because you can supposedly run 20%...
