What area of country are you from? If Tx.,Fla., La.,Al.,Miss., I would want something with Brahma in them Brangus, Gerts. In further north Black Angus,Black angus X Hereford, Brangus heifers would all be a good choice..But reguardless of the cows you buy ( If you are raising for the market) use a Black Angus Bull..There is so much data on Angus bulls , anything else is hard to beat...

I agree with this, but I don't think he meant to bash angus like I do...

You need to decide how much time you have to dedicate to this, the condition of your fencing and pastures and what your goals are. These can make a difference in what you do.

Hi herefords are awesome cattle to start with. I did. The best why to get started is to start small. Don't rush into things. Start with about 10 good heifers maybe even 5 & build your way up
