I hope not because then my niche market will be flooded :lol2: . Seriously, the beef breeds are bred, raised, and sold for beef because they do it more efficiently on a large scale. The point that most of us Holstein supporters are getting at is there is a place for Holstein beef. Many consumers have the perception that Angus is THE breed. Unfortunately, Holsteins get the exact opposite perception by those that don't know any better.djinwa":3eaggz7a said:Gee, with all this praise, sounds like beef producers should go Holstein only. Maybe just need to find a line with less milk production.
I know what they do with them here on Vancouver Island - bop them on the head. The cost of milk replacer and feed is too high, nobody wants to raise the bulls anymore. 25 years ago the newborn bullcalves were worth $50 - $150 each, now that's the price you'll get for a calf that's weaned and been on feed for a month or two.plumber_greg":187kc3e2 said:What did you think they did with the culls and bull calves that were born?
