Talking Introductions and a request for advice

Hi all! My name is Melanie and I'm 20 years old, just starting a CSA with my family. We currently raise Meat chickens, Feeder pigs and I'd like to start on Beef cattle.

I'm attending college locally, but out of all the careers I could consider, I'd rather work with animals and raising beef sounds more appetizing than anything else. So with that in mind, could anyone give a young female farmer some advice? We're not new to cows, we've had quite a few over the years, mainly Red and Black Herefords, but I'm looking for something that's a little easier to handle, hardier for those pesky Michigan Winters and that will help pay for themselves, both to be sold for eating and for my family to eat, since we just love Beef.

I was considering Angus (black and red), but does anyone know of any other breeds?

Thank you in advance!
