Any thoughts on what I should breed my simmi cow to?
« on: May 10, 2018, 02:23:36 PM »
My family had simmental cattle back in the early 90's but due to an unexpected death in the family the cows were sold. At that time I was about 7 years old, but have built a herd of cows up on my own for the last 10 years. I recently purchased a simmental, she is a Dream On x Meyer 734. I know both of those sires are very prominent in the simmi breed. So I thought I would ask what people are using on their cows that have similar pedigrees? I see the bull Excalibur is an outcross to those bulls. Just wondering what is working for everybody else right now?

Hard to guess without a picture of her. However, there are lots of Lock n Load sons out there that are doing a great job. She sounds like she has a solid pedigree....
God, family, and Simmental cattle;  that's what makes life worth living!
