Corriente black angus cross

Postby ccjay2012 » Wed May 31, 2017 2:30 am

Hello hope I can get some straight awnsers about this but I have some corriente/black angus calfs and my thought is to breed the heifers (when there old enough) to a bucking bull... Is it worth it to try and get some bucking calves out of these heifers or heck no?

It would be easier to just start over with the frame score you'd like.
I have a very limited experience with bucking bulls. It needs to be something you do for personal enjoyment. A limited number work out for rodeo.

Yeah, if you want to kill the heifers at calving. A small frame animal is difficult to breed up in size, although it can be done - slowly. You don't breed to a bull that is 4 frames bigger. If they were "given" to you, I cannot imagine they are "seed stock" to start a herd with. Why not raise them up & sell as freezer beef and use that money to purchase what you want?

Apparently they don't have any problems with spitting calves out of Charolais and Belgian Blue bulls.

So what if I put a charbray or brangus on my corriente/angus heifers would their offsprings have a decent frame or no?

I really thought about breeding them back to an angus but would that make the new calves 1/4 corriente 3/4 angus and would i lose the horns?
