I have the same question as David,(msg3/24)"What is the largest cattle in weight?" Keeping weight in mind. I have brahman cattle. What could I cross to get large, beefy cattle. To get the best result (large/beefy) I was thinking about crossing brahman w/ hereford. I also like angus, but I "think" I would get beefy but smaller cattle, Right? What do you think? Also, Why do you cross a hereford bull to a brahman cow, why not the other way around. Does it make a difference? Thanks for the input.
