    I have 4 crossbred heifers and one steer (for about 1 more month). They were all sired by a black angus to crossbred cows. They're probably 3/4 angus and 1/4 simmintal if I had to guess.

    Right now I just have one 4 month old Jersey heifer. She will be our family milk cow, and I will probably let her raise some bottle babies. In a month or so, T-Bone is coming home. He is across the street and is a 2 1/2 month old Charlois. YUM, YUM. Can't wait.

    I have two holstein steers about 15 months old, T-bone and Rib-eye. I do want dexter cattle. They're hard to fine around here, though. I plan to get 2 heifers, possibly with calves and/or bred. If anyone knows someone who has them, I'd love to talk to them.
