    Have you sold or killed anything off him yet? Any few we ever had killed poorly compared to how they looked. Very framey cattle though, they typically make nice square looking cows I think

    We have sold both weanlings and stores off him. Found that they sold as well as any comparable limousin. Have a good few of them that we hope to kill next summer. They have done very well and never seen meal only grass.

    Have found that the best ones are off full continental cows (LM preferably, but also off CH and bb). Breed off anything with any % of Friesan and you have a lot of bone. I'll tell you more when the time comes but I can't see why, bred off a good cow, they won't do as well as any other breed off the same cow. I don't know how they will kill out but time will tell .

    Something rewarding in rearing your own replacements. Not that the will set the world alight, performance wise. Costs lots and takes lots of effort, but it's nice to watch them develop and look forward to seeing them join the milkers.

    Started grazing the restart a couple of weeks ago. The bullocks jumped the fence a couple of times when the neighbour is using the lane, don't know what he did but he spooked them.

    What sort of feed value is it @gone ? Will they fatten on it or is it just maintenance?

    No expert, but think high protein and reasonably good ME.

    A man that used to run a lot of store lambs over the winter said that it would keep the lambs in the same condition if you had to keep them for a few weeks looking for a price rise.
