I have a Murray Grey heifer about ready to crossbreed to an AI bull. What breed would be best? Are there any specific sires that would work well on a first calf heifer?

Most semen companies have bulls duly noted to use on 1st. calf heifers. Check out the EPD's for Birth Wt. and choose 1 closest to zero or negative for B.W. and has a high degree of accuracy too.
