What would your reasons for not choosing Holsteins be?patandchickens said:Not Holsteins LOLelevan said:Any particular breed of cattle that you think would be best?
Well, yes, in all sorts of respects, not just bull-sharingSo, your cattle "supply" would be dependent on working together with your neighbors?
There is just no way to get around it. And heck, even if you DO have the resources to waste on housing/feeding a bull 365 days a year just so it can jump yer cows once a year, what happens when/if something bad happens to that bull, or when you get too much inbreeding? You are not going to have a self-sustaining herd of just a few cattle, can't be done, going to have to involve other people at SOME point no matter HOW you slice it.
So then any breed besides them would work, in your opinion?
I completely understand the bull thing, was just asking you to clarify for the other readers of the thread.
Out of curiosity, do you have an idea of what you would offer as trade for the bull's services?
