It seems to me those countrys have lots of grass and really mild winters. Not only lots of grass but looks to be wheat grass and such. An animal that spends it's whole life with plenty of comodities will grow and look amazing. Take the average commercial operation and after that first year as a heifer it's just meeting demands of the cow. Do you think that cow is going to develop to her potential. You buy a bull from a breeder. Yearling; in most cases feed to reach max potential, two year old's feed to mantain a good target weight but be able to cover cow's and country. After that it's just maintain till three, four months prior to breeding. They might be grass feed cattle; but I dont think they would do good on any grass. Give me one of those two year old bulls fattened that well; I would put money on it; twenty five cows and some high mountain desert pasture I would have a lot of open cows and the bull wouldn't bring average slaughter price at the sale yard. But I could be completly wrong. Maybe they do have outstandin genetics. If so why do I hear about all these countrys that want US genetics? Argentina being one. Good lookin bull though
Most of the Angus cattle are Ohlde breeding,so I think they would work for you.
