While most people work for their money, the most successful people make their money work for them. Likewise, while most cattlemen work for their cows, the most successful cattlemen make their cows work for them. Who is working for who on your farm or ranch?
A cow ought to be supporting the ranch – instead of being supported by the ranch! Who is working for who? The only cows that can effectively support the ranch are moderate-sized, low-maintenance cows that fit their environment. The only way to produce cows that fit their environment is to use bulls that were produced by moderate-sized, low-maintenance cows that fit their environment. Like begets like! As long as you continue to use bulls that were produced by high-maintenance, 5 to 7-frame cows, you will ALWAYS be working for your cows.
