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....

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.

Please forgive me. :roll: What is a beefmaster bull?? 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! :D

What is the background for the breed. It had to been bred out of some kind of cross. They have some long Horn in them?? I've never seen one here in Iowa.

my opinion is that if youre going to cross beefmasters its better to do it the other way around and utilize the beefmaster mommas with angus or charolais bulls. or simmental. etc.

if for some reason youve already got a beefmaster bull and no cows they cross well anything noneared. will work great on angus, charolais, simmental, hereford to name a few.

regenwether - Log onto Google or Dog Pile and type in "Beefmaster Beef Cattle" and then hit SEARCH.

They are a crossbreed comprised of Hereford, Shorthorn and Brahama. Tom Lasater developed them in Falfurrias, Texas, and then moved to a ranch near Colorado Springs, CO. I knew Tom in 1952, and he was a very determined and resolute breeder! He practiced RUTHLESS, almost heartbreaking culling procedures - and developed a terrific breed, which was recognized as a breed, I think, in the 1950's sometime.
