Hi all, I wanted to say I am in awe of all the knowledge you people have!! :worship: This board is amazing!! We just bought an acreage and want to get a Brown Swiss (DH makes cheese). It's just a family cow so we don't really care if it's registered or grade. My parents also want to stand a beef on our property and we are trying to decide what to get. I was reading some of the posts about bulls; would it be a good idea for them to buy a yearling bull and breed our heifer, then slaughter him and get crossbred babies? I just thought that would help extend the profit of the beef. What is a good breed of beef to get?
