Gidday

Hi, I have been reading the plights of all on this site for the past 12months now and thought it about time to jump on board myself.
The above photo ( 4 mth old calf ) is a second generation of the cattle that I have been trying to breed and I am very pleased with the result. I only have a few cattle but as someone on this site once put it "When you have live ones you get dead ones" and it has been a tremendous learning experience all the way.I also breed a few "GreyMan" cattle as well ( murray grey sire over brahman dams ). I confess that at this time I am a Hobby breeder taking on the challenge for the Love Not Money, and my aim is purely to breed Quality not Quanity, having a very supportive life partner who affords me this opportunity.

Thankyou for your interest Beefy, sorry about the size of photo I thought they would automatically be resized for web.
This Steer was my first Greyman he is about 6months old here.

Thankyou to everyone who clicked into my posting for the words of encouragement and welcome.
What did I do wrong with the second photo that I posted for it to arrive from "Photobucket" so BIG compared to the first one :oops: .
I recently had The Murray Grey Sire that I use for my Greyman calves DNA tested and it has come back with a " 4 Star " Tenderness rating but 0 Marbling factor.
Do you find much use for such tests within your cattle enterprises ?
