We have some registered replacement heifers and bull calves from same registered sire, but differant mothers. Can we breed the heifers to the bull calves next year without any problems? They will be in with a herd of about 110, and 3 other bulls. So, they may not even get bred from their half brothers, but I didnt want to take a chance of problems. Thanks for your input!

I wouldn't breed half sisters and brothers, especially registered cattle. There are recessive traits that can show up when you start breeding back too close. Good luck...
