I live in a small town in Ky where the only thing that sales goo on the comm. market are Angus and Black & white face cross. I, as of this moment have no cattle but have been around them all my life. I would like to get started off on the right foot, with a good heard...however I would like to see some gains on my ivestment within te nextcouple of years. To do this in my area I need a fast growing (to 500lbs) breed that is largly black dominant in color. Does anyone have any opinions on any cross. Sim x Gelbviegh or Salers for size and color, Angus x Brahman or Beefmaster. I know there must be a dozen other breed out there that might work...Does anyone have any good ideas?
