I am presently raising Longhorns and am looking to the future. I have a grandson, who will be of 4-H age in 3 years. Our fairboard has a rule that states "all cattle must be dehorned." I refuse to de-horn one of my Longhorns to show at the fair. Iam considering buying an Angus or Maine heifer calf and breeding it to my bull for the grand son to show. When it becomes of age. Anyone have any experience with the above crosses? What are the advantages of each breed as far as temperment? Would be open to other breeds to cross to. I am moving torwards AI for the 2004 breeding season, so I don't believe the investment would be a total loss. I may find I like the other breed. Thank you.
