Well it looks like the crash of the cattle market is going to keep me in the cattle business. The 32 heifers I bought last fall to sell this spring for breading stock won't bring enough to recover my expenses so I will keep them and breed before I will take a guaranteed loss. They are Angus and I'd like to use a Angus bull on them but I know nothing about selecting based on numbers, when I was last buying bulls it was on visual only and I need to know what numbers I would want for calving ease and I don't have to keep this bull, he could be sold after calving breeding season and I can use another next year (maybe a Hereford to make some black baldies to retain for replacements ;-) )so I would like to know what the numbers mean. Also I would like to find one at least in a 300 mile range so if ya'll know of a good one PM or email me @ [email protected] Anyway thanks for any help on this.
