I want to find out what is the best all around breed to start out with. I do not have alot of land and I live in a very hot, humid area. I realize I cannot start with many cows, but if everything goes as planned, I will be leasing larger tracts of land eventually to grow my herd. I am looking for calving ease mainly but also a breed that will do well with the heat. With my lack of pasture, I will supplement with hay and sweet feed. Also, for starting out, what is the best option: buy young heifers and breed or buy cow/calf pairs? I work full time so low maintenance in the beginning is also important. Thanks for any info.
