Why does a pork BUTT roast come from the shoulder??
One thing that kind of baffles me, is when buying a purebred Angus bull, everyone wants and looks for a bull with a big rear end. However, Angus is a maternal breed and a big rear quarter is a sign of a paternal breed~Charolais, Limo, etc

I know most of you would laugh at my style of raising cattle as I only own 300 acres and row crop 1,500 acres and normally have less than 100 cows but around here that is getting to be a large cattle operation. When I came home from the Marines in 1971every farm around had a few cows - - - now all of the fences are gone and most of the the fields are farmed right up to the blacktop. I know this is supposed to be progress but I hate seeing fields with a 5% or greater slope being in row crops - - it seems that with minium tillage eroision is not as bad as it could be but we still nave to reopen roadside ditches about every three years. Did not have to do that but about every 10 years or so when the marginal fields had cows on them!

We would love it if you came for a visit but the guy who takes care of us is bringing a Black bull this year - - - mabey if we run him off he will let you come, we're sure you would love our cooler Indiana summers.
