Congratulations on the new farm addition! Sounds like you have a pretty good handle on what you want to do with it, I wish you the best of luck.

I am always concerned about the biosecurity risk with bringing outside cows in, Pestivirus in particular.

That is a good point. That never gets mentioned enough in our retained heifer debates. I guarantee you bring blackleg, trich, or any of that other junk in to your herd because you were chasing imaginary tax breaks and you will be sorry.

congrats man.. looks like a really nice farm, especially those front (south) pastures. They look really nice sized and flat.

if you already have 500+ lb heifers I'd keep them. if not I'd buy bred cows.
