Well I just read all posts in this section. Very interesting. I wish there were more people posting here. I have so much to learn. Haven't got my cattle yet. Been putting all my time into getting ready for them.
Interested in low line but now I'm not sure.
My dad always feed alfafa hay and sweet grain just before slaughtering. The meat was awesome but it wasn't low line.

trust your daddy. High quality hay, plenty of grain and minerals, can't go wrong.
IMHO, instead of raising two little steers, raise a big one and find a friend that likes home raised tender rare steaks and split it with him.

We raise percentage lowliness and finish with plenty of good grass hay and Chaffhaye a bagged alfalfa. Love our beef and so do our customers.
Love our lowliness and believe it was one of the better choices I have made.

So what is the percentage? I'm guessing Lowline mixed with something else?

We have a3/4 bull, two 3/4 cows cross with angus (registered) and the rest of our cows are 1/2 or less which we sell there calves as freezer beef.
We are selling the registered 3/4 lowline calves as registered at 6+ month old.
