I was building a small herd for myself, keeping the heifers and selling or butchering the steers. Well, for a few years my bull threw 80-90% heifers and all of a sudden I have more cattle than my pasture can support. Rotational grazing helps, but I am already at twice the normal stocking density and no way I can handle 4x density yet.

I have several cows for sale that would make great homestead dual purpose animals. I have several first calf highland Jersey cross with 3/4 highland calves. Highlands do well on low protein pasture and scrub. They also destroy cedar trees, it is like catnip to them and they just rub the tree to the ground. The crosses are making good milk on only pasture with no supplemental grain. Highlands have even higher butterfat than Jersey, perfect for those wanting grass fed butter for paleo or bulletproof diets.

I would love to help fellow homesteaders get set up for milk and meat independence. i am south of Kansas City and have a trailer and could deliver within a reasonable distance. Purple mooseage me if you want more info.

I would so love a couple of these although delivery to France could be an issue , never mind the paperwork . I suspect the paperwork would weigh more than the cows would .
