    Angus Bulls which to use

    I would check there AM status on the american angus website and cross off any carriers first. Then go to the Australian angus website and lookup fawn calf syndrome and the bulls are implicated and remove any sons from those bulls at the present time.

    cattle per acre in oregon

    I would suggest visiting the property before making any decisions on how many acres per animal. Bez gave you good advice. When I visited Oregon the carrying capacity varies greatly from coastal area to the high desert. How has the land been managed and what facilities are available?

    Water lines for MIG

    How much area/forage will 7 animals eat in a day? You might want to have your water connection points closer together or have several hunderd feet of hose. I would suggest longer connection hoses than 10' feet to avoid future mud challenges around connection point.
