      TX heat requires a heat-tolerant breed like the Brahma’s or a mix of two. Dairy cattle don’t produce as much milk if raised in hot climates.

    Our Angus and Charolais do just fine. Also, we have tons of jersey and Holstein dairies around us. Probably shouldn’t tell them that their milk is subpar.

      I didn’t say “subpar”. I’m talking about VOLUME of milk compared to cows up north (Wisc).

    Meat cows are what I’m looking for. Heffers right now. But if I can get a bull calf from different stock that would be good. I’m in south western North Carolina.
