Possibly getting some Jersey bull calves, what do you all think? I'm kinda just getting started out.
This all depends on wat is valuable in ur area. Jersy in my area are very desired. They kinda pricey.Hi personaly i would definitely not use jersey cattle for beef. They are not hardy and do not fatten. They are naturally a very skinny breed of cattle and u will make very little on them. Maybe they are a nice pet but if u want to make money i would not recommend them. Maybe try some thing like charlaois,limousine,angus, herford,simmental crossbreds they are all very common beef cattle where i come from (ireland) we have a lot of anguses and some charloas suckler cows although charlaois do not have alot of milk u will still make good money on them. I am a very big fan of simmentals, i think they make a great suckler cow. They are easy calving (in my experience) good for beef and have plenty of milk. I would not recommend jerseys. Most breeds that are used for dairy are not good beef cattle (there are a few exceptions)
