Pictured below is a first-calf heifer with an 8-month-old calf at side. Momma is bred to have her second calf in October. This pair is in one of our Heat-Tolerant Composite herds. Cattle like this have been bred to handle the heat and humidity. They are also parasite resistant.

Pounds per acre! If you want to increase pounds and profit per acre, you will need a herd of low-input, moderate-sized, grass-efficient cows like the one pictured above. Smaller cows will always wean a higher percent of their own weight than larger cows.
