A a couple of years ago beef cross steers were bringing almost as much as colored calves for 300 pounders but you took Holstein price at the kill plant, thatís one reason I never bought any plus at the time beef plants didnít want them because of the Holstein in them and the Holstein plants didnít want them because of the beef in them, but if he is 50/50 get him a little bigger and put him on full feed shell corn and pellets heíll finish at about 1000 pounds but will be some of the best meat you can get.
