the bottomline is wich breed you like the best.if you put a beefmaster bull on char cows.youll have fast growing heavy weaning calves.an your replacements will be crossbreeds.so the next question is this.do you want pure blood replacements.if you go reg beefmasters you have 2 markets.1 is reg heifers sales.the other is reg bull sales.as long as you raise the best bulls you have.then you will have your steers sale.i cant tell you what todo.other than get the breed you rea;lly want to raise.Frankie":38ee5poi said:How will you market the calves? Sale barn, feed them yourself? Will you sell replacement heifers or retain your own? You should investigate your market before you decide. Good luck....

I've always thought a Charolais bull would make an excellent termail cross on black whit face cows. I assume beefmaster is some type of hybrid bull. Thanks!
