Sorry ... been preoccupied with income (clients that haven't paid in too long) and expenses (kids and the start of school)...

There's got to be some Black Angus, and perhaps some.. Gelbvieh?

I just said I'd do it after the kids went to bed; I never specified doing it last night.

...in all honesty, I forgot about doing that after my son wanted me to read one of my favorite bed-time stories until it was well past MY time to go to bed...this is the first I've gotten to it.

Details below in the next post. :)

Since you guessed what you raise, I find this an interesting guess. Wrong, though.

Sire -- Zach, our fullblood Aubrac bull

So, how do you like your chicken dinner?
