I raise angus. My friend is looking into beefmaster and I was trying to find out all about them to help her with her decision. I will be helping her get started and would like to know what i am getting into. Are they hearty? How is there weight gain etc. I just would like to know a little more about them from a ranchers point of view not the person who is trying to make a sale. It may be a possibility that in the future we will want to make a change. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 8)

I have Beefmaster blood in many of my cows and so do my neighbors. There are a few Beefmaster ranches around here like any other beef breed and I have never heard anything bad about them. Now there is alot of negative talk about Charloias in particular because of the number of calves that people end up having to pull. But my neighbors are happy with their Beefmaster crosses and so am I. My last two bulls came from my neighbors and they were part Beefmaster,Red Brangus and Simmental. I am now running a polled Hereford. What part of the country are you in?

I would cross Black or Red Angus or a Polled Hereford on them. Go for Quality. These calves will out sell any other breed that you would cross them with.
