    cross bred cattle

    The Angus test isn't foolproof, at least the one they had in the early 90s.

    Texas Water Restrictions

    The energy requirements for desalinization are insane. I do wonder about all the water being used for fracing in south Texas right now considering what's going on with the overall water supply.

    Chiangus Breed

    There was plenty of momentum in the breed for non-show steer stuff until Dieter held their dispersal. Since then it seems like they no longer have the marketing for it.

    dun, would you rather see ads targetted based on your interests or random penis enlargment ads? Well, perhaps those are the same thing but you know what I mean.

    Most profitable/marketable breed(s)

    I still don't see where he was bashing Angus, he just doesn't want to use them and he gave his reasons. I agree Angus gets it from all angles here but it that wasn't a case of it. There was no reason whatsoever to jump his ass about it the way you did.

    Most profitable/marketable breed(s)

    I keep going back to try to find what part of the original post made pdfangus act like he's a woman and somebody commented on his weight but cannot find it.

    Brahman-Holstein cross

    We used to have a few that came to us as bottle calf heifers my dad would buy from a local dairy. They were just about as good a cow as a person could hope for. The calves out of Simmental bulls didn't show any dairy influence and were actually in the upper end of weaning weights each year. I...

    Breeding for insect resistance?

    I almost drove three hours down the Beeville for no reason other than I wanted to sit and watch Kit tell South Texas cattlemen that they needed short legged black bulls that have been selected for insect resistance to improve their American cows.

    How much can you pay

    To the original question, if you are paying more than the cost of the lawyer's fees for transfering it when you inherit the land, don't expect cattle to pay for it.

    Single Trait Rejection

    Heat tolerance. If a cow is panting/struggling at a sale regardless of how hot it is I stop looking at her.

    I thought the reason he's not listed on the Angus site has already been discussed. He's more purebred than virtually any purebred Simmental or Limousin, it's only because the AAA is a closed book that he's not in there.

    Virtually every big name Angus bull is in the Simmental registry as a source for percentage programs. In fact, a big part of the reason you cannot direct link to Angus Association web data is the ASA used to use programs to scrape EPDs from them and use the info without paying for it.

    I was told the other breed is Amerifax and the only reason I remembered was it was a fairly obscure breed. He’s more “purebred” Angus than virtually any Simmental cattle but can’t be registered Angus for obvious reasons. When the other breed is that far back in the pedigree who really cares...

    I would assume somebody who makes comments about “multipliers” and “Anyone can sort. Very few really breed” would realize licensing agreements are nothing new. Try buying a bull or semen from the top end of the Brahman breed.

    cooling room?

    One comment on a fallacy, eliminating hair does quite the opposite of making the show about something other than daddy's bankroll. I prefer slick shear shows every day of the week and twice on Sunday but if anything it makes it more expensive, not less, to win. You can't work a slick shear...
