Did some field work in Yuma years ago working on a Geology degree (never worked as one, just always liked strange shinny rocks, oh yeah ran a placer claim in the western slope of the Bradshaws too)...many more shakers happen than the public realizes. Also spent a couple of tours of duty there a life time or so ago.
Anyway...there's so many micro-climates in AZ that a guy needs to know his weather situation before buying cows...look around and ask the folks that raise them in the area that you are thinking about. I spent much of my formatable years around Globe and the Pinal Mtns alot of white face crosses most with horns as I remember back then.

Crikey!!

Now there will be two of you.

Springer - you being relentless and msscamp being the lady sales hammer.

I suspect you have been collaborating behind the scenes.

Depending on where you live I would try Brangus, Brahman (my favorite), or beefmaster. Maybe a Santa Gertrudis...but if it is for beef production defintly brangus or beefmaster

If it is in arizona it is hot most of the time (i think) and angus have fairly long hair. you dont want them to overheat... but it is a possibility
