Well I have been gone since SANDY hit... and thank the lord there wasn't to much damage. But for some reason it did not stop my parents plans of turning our small farm into a real farm.. :(
What started off with just horses is not horses, chickens, pigs and NOW 3 cattle.
Pretty sure they are angus... or part angus.
We have 2 heifers and a steer!!!
Steer will be going for meat in due time and my parents want to breed the females.
The steer is the oldest at 8 months to a year and the heifers 4-8months
Questions are as follows: now if you have any good sources I can read up on it would be helpful as well
1. How young can a heifer be to be bred?? And will there be complications (she slipped out of her field in at the sellers place)
2. When preparing them for butcher... what does everyone usually do??
3. What are some good grains to put them on to beed them up..if any at all??
4. I just need some links to read up on so point me in the right direction :)
Hope everyone is doing well :)
