Purity is kinda like citizenship...if you were illegally here before 1982 you were granted citizenship; if your cattle were registered before DNA you were granted PURITY ...

As Clarence Van Dyke so eloquently put
it, “What do you have if you start registering crossbreds?
I’ll tell you what you have, you have nothing!”
He continued that the value of what we have is the
fact that we are the largest and most advanced “purebred”
breed of cattle in the world! As a matter of fact,
as other breeds have tried to figure out how to compete
with us, they have had to use Angus cattle as
their base to their breed!

to put it just as eloquently, what horseshit ...chopping corn yesterday; 93 degrees, noticed the Beefmasters had decided to graze awhile as the Angus across the fence huddled under a tree...I would bet the homozygousity of this three breed composite is greater than anything vdar ever bred...isn`t purity defined by homozygousity? ...remember 315? what a maternal, non-functional piece of crap; the one thing ole Clarence learned in the dairy business was how to feed a dairy cow...

Gather your genetic base and then close the herd, you are beginning to breed toward homozygousity...purity.

Continue to bring in unrelated genetics, even from same registered breeding, you're crossbreeding.

just a reminder of why the registered breeder doesn`t produce purity...

If the Angus are still meeting their expected performance levels by staying in the shade a bit longer but working a bit later in the evening than the composites why does it matter? If the Angus are suffering overall because the the warmth that is a different matter. Sometimes just as important to work smarter and not harder.

true Mark, it doesn`t matter IF performance doesn`t suffer...

In all of nature, some animals and some species are keener in some of the traits than others; but never are they keener in all the traits...to be so, would upset the balance in nature. Humans , being of a higher order, have a conscience. {most humans Very Happy }

paraphrased with additions Very Happy from early Larry writing`s...
