    Interested in opinions

    The seller will get his money back ten fold when people find out he stands behind his cattle, he is a great cattleman, and business man.

    Embryo Calves

    Nice looking cows, and I like the pedigrees. How is the temperament on that line bred EXT cow?

    Are the 1150-1200 pound cows reality or myth ?

    I just had a young cow raise a 705 pound bull for her second calf, she weighed 1205 at weaning time. She will probably be in the 1400 to 1500 pound range when she matures. Have a heifer that just raised a 575 pound heifer, momma weighed 970 at weaning time, and she will probably mature at around...

    Stop the train

    I quit buying heifers and cows, 50% that I bought didn't work out, that's not a good ratio! I'll take my chances raising my own, cull rate so far is about 12%.

    cant catch him..dangit

    You're just pawning your problem off on someone else. Buyers remember where they got the problems from, and it could hurt you in the long run. I would just haul him to the processor and be glad to have a little beef from a problem.

    how much $#^$ salt do they need to eat???

    Have you gotten allot of rain this year, could be the grass is washed out and they are hitting the mineral harder? I feed loose mineral and it only has about 20% salt, the rest is mineral and vitamins, which they need more than the salt. They could be consuming allot trying to get the minerals...

    Stop the train

    I can rent pasture, buy quality hay and mineral, vaccines, etc., for less than a dollar a day per head. That is why I asked about the high cost of raising a heifer. I keep all of mine to build the herd, the ones that don't cut it, get used for freezer beef and I about break even.

    How do you arrive at the $1500 figure?

    Baldies and freezer beef...

    The Wagyu will give you better beef quality, higher marbling, and more tenderness. The Wagyu breed is a slower growing/maturing breed, and as stated, not much in the rear quarter. They do have close to the same size ribeye and other select cuts as an angus. Just depends on what you want for...

    Angus sire

    We are just trying to help you out there buddy. If you are looking to use him for high quality beef, by all means go for it. But, if you are looking for exceptional females, I believe I would look somewhere else.

    Angus sire

    Now hold on, Doc said he was a "winner", so it must be so. :)

    Angus sire

    Perhaps you should buy some cattle and use the sire before recommending him? My best cow has raised the best calf every year so far, and Ambush 28 was the worst calf she had. My best cows daughter out of Foresight will likely raise one of the best calves this year as well. I think I have done...
