Hi Joe, welcome to the forum. Tell us about your operation.
we have 229 acres in NW LA, about 80 of it is wooded, raise horses and cattle although we have cut back on the horses due to time. Cattle are crossbred commercial cattle, primarily angus cross, some have a little ear, we have a couple of corriente cross and longhorn cross cows and they're running with a Brahma bull at the moment whi is doing a reasonable good job but the percentage of bull calves is a bit high so we are going to swap him out this spring and put a polled homozygous black bull in there to blacken them up. Ear and a little leather doesn't hurt them too much in this part of the country but colorfull , unless they'r brindle, doesn't help a lot.

Sounds like a great set up. We enjoy seeing pictures of each other’s cattle so don’t be shy and again, glad you joined.
