    Breed Character What happened to it?

    Lets not forget I never said that Herefords dont perform i said that in MY operation i have noticed that the breed character is all but lost. Again let me remind everyone that this post was a general observation of breed character being lost.

    Breed Character What happened to it?

    I hear what you are saying those are the traits of the newer bloodlines that i do want to keep but I also feel that there is a lot to be gained from getting back to basics a little bit.

    Breed Character What happened to it?

    There are definitely many traits that i am using some new lines to try to bring in to the program. However I feel my specific needs call for a little older blood.

    Breed Character What happened to it?

    When Herefords came from across the pond they were known for being well adapted for harsher conditions they could get out and cover some ground and they were known for their outstanding marbeling along with grade. I hope this answers your question.

    WHAT?!?!?

    I was recently told with regard to my views on breeding stock that structure is a thing of the past. However i feel that if we lose structure we lose production. I was just wondering if this was a common thought process or if this is just a cranky old rancher lookin for trouble.
