I think it also depends on how much experience you have with cattle. I mean, you wouldnt want something that is going to be somewhat crazy if youve never raised cattle before. Theres a lot of factors that could affect that? Personally I think you should just check out as many breeds as you can, make a group of breeds you like, then research them all, then make a decision. I did that too, and I came out with Brahmans. Liked them more than anything else.
Personally - Chiangus, Chimaine, Chi x angus x maine, Chiangus x simm, simangus.
txshowmom Those have all worked really well for us in the past. If you are going to go to a major show you'd better have a good one or its out the gate baby.[/quote said:Sometimes it isn't how good of a steer you have it's who you are in those big shows. Really turns me off with a few of those people at Western and Louisville anymore. Reason I don't get into clubbies. I should though. At least market to the local 4-H kids. One kid $$ bought a Chimaine last year in the midwest, he got first of course, but what local kid can afford to go there and buy, however he would have gotten bottom if it was a carcass class. Made the other kids at least feel better.
Maybe someday I'll take a pen of 3 to NILE. Not really fretting about it though
