I think the easiest thing for you to do is to buy some Hereford heifers/cows and you can rent an Angus or Brangus bull for a month for about $250.

The Hereford X Angus will produce Black Baldies. The Hereford X Brangus will produce Super Baldies. The heifers from these crosses are very popular for breeding or for slaughter, as are the steers.

You might even be able to rent a Brahman bull to breed your Hereford cows and produce Braford calves. Or you can always breed a Hereford bull to the cows to get more Herefords.
I found some angus 3n1 for 1800 around Commerce I was thinking of getting 2 or 3 of them calf’s our couple months old as well ... feel like that I could build faster like that open for opinions though


Do you need to build fast? Being new to cattle best I can tell, you may want to take your time and ease into a bit slower. Get your legs under you a bit. There are lots of "hands on" lessons ahead of you. Take your time and build slowly. The lessons learned are cheaper on a small scale, especially if you do not have a local mentor.

I know I’m all over the place but I’m just trying to make the right decision.


As you I am a beginner. I picked up 45 acres close to my house and after researching my options I decided on Brangus. I bought 6 bred heifers, 5 bred 3 yr olds and 5 bred 4 yr olds all bred to Reg. Hereford bulls. I have people already wanting to buy the heifers, and a couple guys want to purchase bull calves. I went to the local FSA office and applied for their Micro Loan and got it, took less than a month. The loan rate is 5-7 yrs @ 2.75%, if you interested in financing.


Good luck,

I finally made the decision I’ll be purchasing an 8 yr old cow light bred angus 600 and a pair for 1100 8 yr old red angus char calf possibly 3n1 I’ll be getting them delivered next weekend March 17th 18. I know there older but feel like I can have them a couple more yrs then sell them... Thoughts and opinions needed

Look like they have had a hard winter, post some more pictures when you get a bit of condition on them and a few side views.
