You should breed her at about 15 months or (I would guess) 800 lbs. She should turn out to be a relatively large cow with excellent milk. She may, unless she is being dry lotted or fed a lot of supplement, be a rather rangy cow and not carry the flesh that a straight beef cow would. When she calves she should be able to feed two calves without any strain, but she will require good groceries to do it.
