I've just purchased 10 very fleshy (off grass only) pure blood angus heifers. They come from a long line of AI breeding, with their sire being Gridmaker. I'm going to AI them in March and I'd like to use a Gelbvieh sire on them (Flying H Exclusive).

Do those of you who breed to produce Balancers start your angus heifers on LBW gelbviehs, or do you always breed your angus heifers to angus for their first calf:?:

Also, any comments on my plan would be greatly appreciated, positive or negative. I need all the help I can get.
