Buy the breeder, not the breed. Every study that I've seen has found that reproductive efficiency is multiple times more important to the cow/calf producers bottom line than growth or carcass traits. If you are building a herd(I assume from progeny, which is what I would do),you can't neglect the maternal traits of the bull you buy. "Buy yuor bulls from someone who raises cattle the way you ought to."--Kit Pharo; <A HREF="http://www.pharocattle.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.pharocattle.com</A> Just for balance to Frankie's sites, go to Kit's newsletters and read through some of them. Good luck.
