    Are they worth the investment?

    Excellent post. I agree 100% with everything you said. I love what you said about " They know who belongs and who does not. Will chase strangers, dogs, any intruder." I will not get around any cattle on foot. Everything I do and have ever done, is on horse back. Anytime I had Brahmas on the...

    Are they worth the investment?

    I agree with your opinion. I spent this past winter putting together a herd of 1st and 2nd calf cows for a south GA client...Br x Hereford and Hereford x Brahmas, as well as purebred Brafords. We gave as much for the 1/2Br/1/2 Herf as we did purebred Brafords....sometimes a little less, but...

    Beefmaster Angus Cross

    I was about to comment the same til I read your comment, Travlr. I did notice a black baldy cow in his pics, and he may have more of those in his herd, or heterozygous grade angus cows. A solid color BM can sire or birth a wf calf. BM are a composite breed 50% Brahma, 25% Hereford and 25%...

    Speaking of a touch of ear...

    Yep. And around here in the 70's they let them use 110v hot shots,. too. Seen a few cattle killed with them...and not just "crazy " Brahmas.

    Trailer Wash

    The citric acid wash your dealer recommended is not a strong acid like the three listed on that sticker.

    Beefmaster Angus Cross

    Look at the bottom of this page. There are a couple more threads about this from 2007 and 2008. Bit to answer your question, using registered, or at least purebred Beefmasters and Angus, there would be no difference in appearance in the calves, regardless of which breed you used for cows and bull.

    What to do with “purebred” black angus heifers?

    I wouldn;t sell a horse that would not load, because there won't ever be one in my possession. Had someone come to buy one about 42 years ago..or maybe 1981.... 41 years ago. They came with a ratty old trailer. They decided to buy the horse, and I lead it to the trailer and was gonna load it...

    What to do with “purebred” black angus heifers?

    Don't know about your state, but in Ga, unless there is a written warranty or guarantee, all sales are " as is". If he gave you a verbal personal guarantee, well, a man is only as good as his word. I tell everyone that wants to buy a horse: "All sales are final..no returns. You can come ride...

    To introduce a different breed

    No apology necessary, Dena. I am glad it worked out better for you. That is a nice looking young bull and well worth the money. I am still going to trade horses soon as they have the health certificate needed for Louisiana on the one I am buying.

    To introduce a different breed

    Ok, that's about 70 miles from where I swap the horses. The dude is supposed to send the money for the difference, then I am headed west. I will message you when and if I get it, and we can work out details then.

    Ain't that the truth! If you could check with the IRS, my horse or hay or cattle businesses have lost money everyear since 1983!

    New bull???

    Actually, it is based on color at the slaughter facility. If it ain't black, it isn't even inspected for the other 10 qualifications. And, if the black carcasses fail one of the 10 tests, then it doesn;t get the CAB certification. I hardly doubt any inspector is going to risk losing his job by...

    To introduce a different breed

    Thanks, Grey. It is right at 900 miles to where I'd pick up the horse....a little sw of College Station, so another 100 miles wouldn't be that too bad. That round trip will cost me about $600 in fuel, I am trading my horse for another one plus $1500. I will just go ahead and tell you, @Mongo1...

    To introduce a different breed

    What is your zipcode? I am working on a horse trade with some one close to College Station. If I carry a horse out there and bring one back, I will come get him. Do you have a good place to load? 24' gooseneck. I will put the horse in front and load him in the back.

    To introduce a different breed

    Where are you located, Mongo? A solid black like that should bring a premium. You must be in an area where no one has Criolo -type cattle. Is this one the son of your cow?

    New bull???

    The off colored cattle are not discounted,,,they bring what they are worth. The CAB eligible black cattle bring a premium. Say a red steer brings $1.50 per lb, a Char brings $1.50 per pound, and a black steer brings $1.75 at a sale today. The red and white ones were NOT discounted 25 cents a...

    New Ford Maverick at a bare-bones price....

    Actually, the Comet was 1st manufactured 1962-1969. These were the same as the Ford Falcon, then the Ford Fairlane later. In 1971, it was re-introduced based on the Maverick, which entered the market a year earlier, 1970.
