We are running straight black Angus cows and angus bull. The base herd is registered and we are selecting for a smaller frame cow. We have culled 50% of our cows to get down to our current 25 head. We are in North Central Texas (Hill County). Its hot and humid during the summer but I havn't had a noticeable problem with my animals. That may be b/c I don't have any thing to compare to but our calving rates are great, weaning good size calves and everything is living and healthy. I don't know what else I could want. We do have shade in most of our paddocks so that may be helping. I have debated going with a red angus but then I would have to liquidate my herd and start over and then I am not sure the benefit would be significant. If it starts going south maybe I will rethink but if it ain't broke don't fix it is my thinking. Where are you and what do you run?
