Producer Perspective Part Three: Cattle Breeds

RSS
img_2743.JPG Last week, I began a multiple-part series featuring the things producers use on a daily basis on cattle operations across the country. Cattle ranchers took part in discussions on preferred gate latches and the best stock trailers to invest in. Those who sent in their comments first even qualified to receive fun prizes! This week, we are back at it, and once again, I will be giving away a set of notecards by David R. Stoecklein. Today's discussion will undoubtedly reveal loyalties and favorites for cattle producers, as I want to know what your favorite breed of cattle is.

Which breed works best for you? What cross-breeding scenario creates the perfect cow? Which breed fits in your region? What do you like about your favorite breed? What experiences have you had with others? Just like rooting for your favorite team during a sporting event, producers often rally around a particular breed with as much spirit and passion. So, make your call...what's it going to be?

Be the first two to send your comment, along with your mailing address, and qualify for fun prizes! And, shoot me an email with your cattle photos. I would love to create a photo album with all breeds represented. Thanks for your participation.

Finally, I'm on the road today headed to Mankato, MN, for the Agriculture Ambassadors Institute where I am a featured speaker and workshop presenter. If you were given the chance to offer young people advice on leadership, what would you tell them? What positive messages can I share from the readers of BEEF Daily? I would love to hear from you, and so would the young people!
