Hi,<br> My husband & I are new to this board. We have a total of almost 90 acres,but only 20 acres have been used for the cattle and the other is being sharecropped on.We have made a decision to make cattle part of our main source of our income.We live in another city but plan to move there in the next few years.We have 6 hereford heifers and a calve born on February 12 we haven't gotten close to see the sex yet.We just sold 5 bulls and one the older heifers.We did pretty good at the market for beginners.We are planning on increasing our herd slowly.We are going to buy another bull soon.I have a question how many cattle can we maintain on twenty acres that we are using right now?Eventually we will be turning some of the other land into pasture.Also we were told that breeding a black angus bull with a hereford heifer will be in more money and better beef.Is that true? Thanks in advance for your advance.<p>Kim

There should be a web site that would give info for folks that are new to raising cows... Maybe this one's it, but I haven't researched it in detail.. If I find a good site, I'll let you know. If folks that read this stuff were to help, that would be great.. <p>good luck<br>randy<p><br>: Hi,<br>: My husband & I are new to this board.
