Well I can not believe that so many people think hereford their fav. breed....2 to 1 over angus, wonder how many of those hereford voter do not own herefords??????

I voted for Hereford and I don't own any. Second choice would be Holstein and I don't own any of those either. I have my reasons. Is that a problem for you?

Van C , what you do or believe based on what you think aint no skin off my nose, good luck and more power to you .....

Secondly , You do not have do ask me If I have a problem with (THAT) , Most know when I have a problem with something, subtlity is not my thing....
I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I THINK....

Third, I keep thinking of th old Jimmy Stward movie about herefords (the rare breed?), and think that movie gave Hereford a boost ...

And it is about FAVS , not logic, or money, or even reality....

think about this for a minute if u really luv herefords or gyr or buffalo there is no reason that i can think of why u cant have 1 or 2.think about this unless u r tied to a higher authority.alot of people have dogs cats horses that have cattle too.yes some horses and dogs r worth a little money ,but how many people have plug horses not worth a bullet.eating feed never getting rode .dog feed always vet bills.when they could have 1or2 cows of a breed that they love .i had a guy tell me i couldnt have brahman cows in northwest arkansas .i have close to 30 fullbloods know.sometimes i am docked somtimes i come out better than any cattle at the salebarn on the f1 heifers. u people do know u just have one life to live do it with what u like.dont tell us u luv a breed but cant have ,sounds to me like u relly dont like them, if i couldnt have eared cattle im done

bishop, I know you too have seen it...everything with white face is a hereford, everything black is angus and if it's got ear it's a brimmer. A lot of those cattle really hurt the reputation of the "real thing". For whatever it's worth...everytime I see on of those long eared, long legged skinny brimmer heifers about 8=10 months old go thru the sale barn everybody in the house tries to get her and she really "rings the bell".

I live in a town within the village limits. I don't own any other land. Like most towns, there are ordinances against keeping farm animals within the village limits. I guess that would be the higher authority you're talking about. Hopefully some day I'll be able to buy a little place with a few acres out in the country. If and when that happens, I can assure you I'll have a few head, probably Herefords. If I knew growing up what I know now, I'd already have them, but that's another story.
Don't get me wrong. I'm quite happy with the way my life has turned out all things considered. I have a wonderful, loving family, a pension from one job and another decent job. We were able to send our two sons through college and they are doing quite well. We have four beautiful grandchildren and another on the way. Those things are far more important to me than anything else right now. But I still hold onto the dream.

P.S. Anyone wishing to donate to the "VanC Dream Fund" can contact me and I will PM you with furthur instructions. :tiphat:

If I could find some red Gyr cows I would probably have a couple. They woudln;t be optimum in this neck of the woods, but would at least live. So, without that we raise Red Angus and red baldys.

No need to apoligize to me. I wouldn't trade what I've got now for all the cattle in the world. But I wouldn't mind having both. ;-)
I see you're a man that appreciates what he has and doesn't complain about what he doesn't have. I like that.

Having owned and even milked some of these crosses in the dairy barn you won't be disappointed.
