I'm new to the cattle business and I have a few questions. I wanted to get my feet wet first so I bought a few cows and everytime you ask someone how things should be done you get a different answer, so I want some of your opinions. So far all I have are purebred angus, who I plan on getting bred by a friends bull. I have a cow and calf pair, the cow is 3 years old, 1300 lbs and the calf is around 400-500lbs and 6 months old. The other heifer is about a 1 1/2 old and 800lbs. I want to know if the weight to age sounds about right( I know it's hard without seeing them), what age before breeding, and when and how to wein the calf. How much feed should I be giving them? What is the life expectany of Angus cows? Also any general info would be greatly appreciated. I know I have alot of questions and I'm sure they have been discussed here before, so if you could just point me in the right direction that would work too. Thanks!
