And should I do registered?
Starting fresh I would buy bred cows out of a field from a reputable cattleman locally that you know well. Have them preg checked and if there all bread you won’t have to invest in a bull for several months.

Plenty of cows out there to be bought in groups of 20-50 head all synced up and palpated.

Just make sure you have some kind of history on them
Or you know the seller.
