If you were to start in the beef business this year with the goal of at least breaking even and ideally making a modest profit, what type of operation (meat, breeding stock...) would you have? Would you go with purebreds and if so would you register? How would you market? What would you use as factors in determining what type of operation and what breed? Still doing research before getting feet wet (or soaked) and sincerely appreciate any advice from those with experience.
