I was wanting some thought's on what bull might be good for my operation. I have a small herd of simmangus, belted galloway, and black baldy cow's. Most likely will buy some more simmi's. I need a bull for next year and I was thinking polled hereford. I don't care about what something is going to bring me at the sale barn. All I care about is a good tasty steak on the table and something easy to deal with and nice to look at in the field. I will want to retain some of the heifer's from my belties and simmi's. I like to retain the hide from the belties at slaughter time. Everybody preaches angus around here. Since everybody is stuck on black I tend to think there has to be something else out there other than angus to get me what I want. I think I'm just tired of seeing angus bull's and may be looking for something to compliment my herd of cow's and give me something else to look at. I'm not saying I wont buy an angus bull. I'm just saying I may want to try something else for a while. I figured with as large as the herd book is for polled hereford's it should be easy to find a bull that will give me calves around 80lbs. I just haven't read much about the marbling on the hereford compared to say the almighty angus. Come around Sept. I want to buy a young, gentle bull around 9 to twelve month's or so from reputable breeder that has a bull that is halter broke or close to it and that has been handled alot. I'm starting to look now so I might have a chance of finding one by Sept. Any thought's??????
