Talk to Mike Keeney, he is an Angus guy in Kentucky and if you want black baldies you can put a Victor Domino bull over the top. I have a Victor Domino Bull, he is very nice. May providence be in your camp.

My crossbred 4 wt steer calves brought $3.10 a lb here 2 weeks ago. They went to Oklahoma to a wheat grazer.
If I was starting out, I would buy cows at a retirement liquidation. Go a day ahead of the sale and ask the oldtimer which cows raised the best calves. If you are gonna be a commercial operation, it is about lbs on the scales.
