About my business model, it is simple. When you start a cow/calf/birth-to-plate business with nothing, it's a lot easier, more profitable and more fun if you keep it simple.
Hair, good hay, warm/non frozen water, and shelter from the wind in the woods.
The heavier, dark red hair comes from this group's bull 33 on the far left of the second pic. The lighter color, mostly 4-5 yr old cows are sired by an earlier bull. I really like this Schu-Lar bull 33. He and his offspring have good winter coats but also slick up nicely in the summer.
