Thanks Aaron, that's what I figured. I'm realizing there are regional differences in calling a given animal a weanling, yearling ("long" or "short"), or heifer. Will you wait a couple months to breed them?


They will get bred July/August with the rest of my heifers.

Nothin' prettier than a red Ford truck, a Massey Ferguson tractor and a red-n-white Hereford sittin' on the farm.

Had a long conversation last winter with the biggest simi x bull breeder in this area. He recommended 1/4 blood replacements and culling off the bigger ones. His bulls had "too much power" and it showed in higher simi percentage females.
His BA cow herd looked 1400 to 1500 lb., and simi x were bigger yet...
