Okay, I'm 17 years old and graduating in May, I have two show heifers one is bred and the other is 10 months old. I have alot of money invested in my whole FFA project somewhere of around 9,000 dollars between feed animals and show equipment. I really want to raise and later down the road show at some national open shows and I have the chance of a lifetime but need some advice. My great uncle in West Virginia has about 100 head of purebreed angus cows of good quality. He has a purebreed bull that runs on them year round and about every 4 months he rounds some calves up and sends them to feedlots. Well long story short he just retired and wants to give the operation to me 249 acres and the 100 head. I want to turn this into a club calf operation. So I was thinking that I would have to of course get rid of the angus bull and get a decent clubby herd bull. Next SHOULD I BREED ALL 100 OR PICK OUT THE BEST 30,40,50? After calving I would of course cull some cows and retain some of the better heifer calves to build my heard right? I basically need advice on how to get this thing going I realize this isn't something that is going to happen in 2 or 3 years but is it possible to have a good operation going in 10 years? Please I really do appreciate any advice and sorry its so long.
