I'm looking to buy one of each maybe 2 each but i want ones with really good genetics with papers.

I don't have a lot of land i can carry i think 7-9 cattle on it so im looking to bred and have the best quality in low numbers.

who should i be talking to buy one from ?

I live near 97810 zip code. which is not near much to get the best genetics for a heifier/cow to AI at a later dater. how far can i buy one ?

How do you ship ?

I think if you just put where you are located in your profile would help more than the zip code.

Check with the registries to see if there are any reputable breeders in your area.

Know WHY you want the cattle you seek. One person's "world class genetics" is another mans cull.

1 - There may be a Charolais and/or Angus regional / state associations you can call / email and they would be able to give you better information than a group of anonymous people on the internet.

2 - Not everyone wants to achieve the same thing with cattle; so even w/in the world of Char and BA, there will be great diversity of opinion about what is "best" ... and ... because what works well in your part of the world vs. what works well in my part of the world, you may be better off seeking a regional / state / local opinion on what sort of genetics works best. And, with EVERYONE who tells you what they think is BEST ... you need to ask WHY ... and then you need to put pencil to paper to ensure that their idea of a good idea is in fact a good idea.
