Thanks for that info from both you and named em, tamed em. I am targeting stocking the cattle in later December while its cool and when my oats are 12" tall or moreNo your refrigerator is no where close enough to hold semen. Like -420F
Have you contacted anyone to BREED your cow?
First thing, find a breeder in your area. If you have a dairy near by, find out who services their farm.
There's ABS, Genex, Select Sires, etc.
Who ever he works for, he should have a semen book or go online to see what beef bulls they carry.
solid advice, that is my end game. your method sounds the most certain. My pasture has zero cows right now. I bought the land only 18 months ago. Fence is good now, but still need a barn and a holding pen, so my target date is about 90 days from now
