20 hours of daylight would kill me. that only leaves 4 hours for bedroom sports and sleep?

I have been focusing on marbling and ribeyesize for years. The only problem we have now is that in a good year the cattle will grow so fast that they get to big before they are ready to grade. I am really trying to bring everything together now. I think we may have found a bull that will really help to bring everthing up. He is early matureing and has a big ribeye and good marbleing. The only down side is the oldest calves were born in march so we are 10 months away from getting carcass data.
