Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cattle and that's pretty much the same thing.

Well
The bred cows we were interested in turned out to be muts.
We ended up buying three yong heifers at a decent price.
They've got a bit of ringworm but are doing nicely otherwise.

I have several of Angus x Belted Galloway crosses. Some has a belt but most ones doesn't have a belt. I like the cross myself, not big cows but raises big calves.

Every belted crosses can be traced all way to this cow I showed for 4H & FFA shows 18 years ago.

A nice heifer from last year.

This is the oldest cow (she's almost 17) with her 2017 bull calf. She is expecting a 2018 calf this April.

Funny how they have partial belts. Cattle look good.
