I am assuming that you only retain a few because your herd is fairly well established ??? Would you retain more if you needed more replacements ?
I prefer to keep some of my replacement heifers do to that I know what I'm raising some in a while I will buy one or two to flush for an E.T. program.Campground Cattle":29w8gf4m said:We buy most of our replacment heifers, probably 75 % as we like to bring in new genetics as we raise our own herd bulls. I have a good market for herd bulls, brahman influnced cows still have some popularity in my area and along the coast.
