He called me and it took 45 min to get home.When I got there the calf was up and sucking. He said she just pushed it out doing the splits I think it was more luck than good management. Walk

none-the-less, i do believe that the breed is making progress on the kill end, it's just SLOW, and a Big part of it is marketing at least in this country where black is better (and that is NOT a racist remark, ok?!!?).
as long as you guys keep breeding for improvement, it'll work. just try to get everyone to have even CLOSE to the same goals
