Red Bull Breeder":1k5n2q4b said:None of them a Fullblood Limi is what folks use on char's around here.
If your in doubt about the bull I wouldn't use him. Unless you've got epd's that show him an easy-calving bull. Keep in mind we are talking about Char heifers here. They should be decent sized come calving time so they may handle a bit more than a smaller framed heifer. Personally I like a red bull to get tan or yellow calves. We use both Gelbvieh and Red Angus on our Char cows. Have very vigorous calves from birth that grow like weeds.Beef08":or501c8y said:ok well our heard has to much ear as it is, and i was trying to get away from it..and i really like our hereford bull but the only thing that worries me is his big head and how will that affect these heifer's calves.
If you've only got 3 heifers I would consider AI. Could use anything you wanted without the expense of buying a bull. Maybe your not set up for AI and/or don't want to mess with heat detecting but it is an option if you decide to go another route.Beef08":2uicj0mu said:the reason i am giving the choice of brangus and hereford is cause we have one bull of each. i am not bout to go buy another bull just to breed to 3 heifers. but thanks for all your opinions :cboy:
