Don't you think I would rather have a good calf from a small breeder than a lesser quality calf from a known or larger breeder. Good ones are good ones. You may not be able to tell the difference from farm to farm but some can.
those calves from the small breeder outfits don't know nuttin about reading, just the ones from the big PR outfits know how to read, then lots of them fail the test.
Its about quality not a fancy magizine which is worthless in the pasture and salebarn. When you go to the salebarn take that fancy magizine with you, bet that impress some Cattlemen, bids will be through the roof. Not.
Quality Calving ease Maternal instincts Yield and Grade is what it takes.
But some like to brag I paid XXX for this calf, most of the time its like Dun said in an earlier post fool parted with his money.
