Good looking girls. Congratulations. It looks like you have a nice warm spot for them this winter too. Your area may be different than mine, but in my area I would breed them to a black angus. BWF calves sell at or near the top here.

From what I've read about him I would use the Select Sires Black Angus bull Connealy Confidence. Planning on breeding 2 heifers to him in the spring.
