The butcher taking home supper can also cause this.

A "Grass fed only" ranch here runs only Limo bulls... I do agree though, I think too much Limo isn't good for a grassfed operation when I look at my animals.. Gelbvieh was a little better there.. they quit making frame a little sooner and filled out.

I don't have live weights, but one older steer (28 months) was 950 hanging and 640 in the freezer (67%), butcher said it was exceptional quality... Gelbvieh/SH/Herf was the breeding there

I think this guy was around 650 lbs, beautiful meat again, but the yield wasn't there with 390 lbs take-home (60%).. Same butcher... a little younger, about 24 months.. Closely reltated to the above... Gelbvieh/Saler/Herf
