I totally am on the same page as Ace. What is our breed coming to. We have lost all breed characteristics over the years trying to be something that were not, why go done that road again. If they want to raise terminal cross cattle go screw with char, limos, even gelbeviehs, leave our breed alone. Montana has so few true breeders left and tons of commercial Angus cows, I don't need to argue and see who can piss the highest on the wall, just do my own thing, but our breed as a whole is heading down the wrong road, and most guys have blinders on whats ahead, another train wreck. I take care of my customers, they take care of me. I grew up in the great Hereford depression, and things are smoking hot right now, selling the right genetics, but I have learned from history. Most to these breeders that promote this crap, maybe need to go through some diversity. Ace, we can keep doing our thing, and you know even you and I are different, but the hell with it. It seem there is less of us with this mind set and more breeders that want to show and sell herd bulls to each other.These steer jockey at are screwing with our breed, guys like this have been around forever, difference is old breeders true breeders read them like a book and never followed there lead. I would rather sell 80 bulls private treaty to good honest commercial men, help them make a honest buck, have them come back every year with good hand shake relationship, than sell 50 dry cows and one matertermial sire .!!!!!
