does anyone in here raise beefmaster cattle? I am about to buy my first few head of cows and I have a friend of a friend who's father raises beefmasters. Everything I have read about them seems to make them out to be a very good breed for here in N Texas. We have pretty mild winters, compared to most of you folks, we eventuallly get into the teens but only for a few days at a time, only get snow every couple of years, so I dont think weather will be a problem. I dont have any loafing sheds yet, as I just completed my fence, but I do have a big workshop and lots of trees they could block the north wind with if necessary. My main concern is that I dont ever hear of anyone mentioning this breed, most folks around here raise angus, brahmas and herefords, and my next door neighbor even has holsteins, but I like the look of the beefmasters and am thinking of buying about 6-8 head for my 18 acres, which stays green up until the first frost, usually late November or so, as I actually mowed the lawn and brushhogged the pasture yesterday. I am only getting cows at this time, no bull, and hopefully he will have some pairs which have been bred back, at least in a perfect world it will work out like that. Any suggestions / comments? Any advise is welcome, as I am as green as can be on the cattle business, just bought some acreage from a friend who's parents left it to him and thery had no desire to move out here, so we built a house and are really enjoying the country atmosphere!
