Well I know where there are 16-17 year old corriente cows right now with beef calf’s at their side and beef calves in their belly’s
I have seen a lot of Criollo....LH , Corriente, etc....into their 20s. Brahmans, too. There's a guy around here that has reindeer (he does Santa pictures ), camels...all kinds of stuff. He has a Longhorn steer with about an 8' horn span that he gives rides to kids on, and lets people take pictures on, that is well past 25, probably close to 30 now. I took all of my Corriente cows to my friend in south GA in 2006. I think there are 2 or 3 of the ones that were 2 yr olds, still in the "Kudzu herd". so they'd be 17.
