When it is about a foundation herd, you can start small but you cannot start low breed. Having at least a few good quality animals is extremely necessary, even if you cannot afford all the animals to be high breed. That’s why you need to be very careful while choosing the cows and bulls for your herd. Just taking the decision that you need high breed animals is nothing unless you find such animals. For this, you need to check the physiology, read about their genetics online, etc.

Choosing the right animals
<br>

There are many things that to be considered before buying the right cows for your herd. Based on what purpose you need them for, you would need a cow that either produces high quality meat or high qualities of milk. Similarly you will have to think of the right age, weight, etc. Paying the right price is also very important. You should make sure that the price being asked is not more than the market value of the animal you are buying. A good way to be certain that you will get the best animals and best deals is to buy from the right place. The website you buy cattle from should have genuine sellers, and no frauds. Reading all the information before bidding on the animal is a necessity. Also, check the cow and make sure that everything is as promised before you pay the money.

All these things are very important for making sure that you get nothing but the best cows for your foundation herd. But, the important aspect is the breed. Make sure that the cow you buy belongs to a high breed. Sometimes, however, it is not possible to determine that an animal is in fact of a high breed. If you only consider the looks of the animal for this purpose, you are bound to be mistaken sooner or later. It is a lot more effective to consider the genetics. Getting an animal’s genetics tested is not as difficult as you might think. Now it is even possible to test genetics online.
