we have one of the largest Longhorn herds in Mexico, and to say the truth if you are not raising them purebred for lean meat anything you cross to them will be good.CopeMan":2ovr6o6u said:
I have bred some Charolaise and Simmental heifers to Longhorns and they really have muscle, I don't breed English so i don't know how well will they do.lazyhill":3a289fzd said:Interesting question and I've never crossed any of my longhorns or brangus with each other. To be honest, I'm not sure what it would produce as far as quality.
Anyway, I'm going to take a guess on this one. I would think that the British cross would produce better. A neighbor of mine bought a couple of longhorns from me and keeps them in the same pasture as his black angus cows. He breeds them to bulls of their own breed and does not cross-breed. Anyway, the longhorns he bought from me are really the same height but just are not a heavy as the angus.
The British cows should add more marbling and weight whereas I would think that the continental would add more muscle and size. I would think that the mass and marbling would be more beneficial.
I would be curious to hear others thoughts.
No It is not a crime to ask questions. I never insinuated that it is.CopeMan":2om8hwcm said:la4angus":2om8hwcm said:
