We’ve alway bought replacement cattle ( young bred cow or young cow/calf pair) from private sellers, like a seed stock ranch. A ranch that raises large number of cattle for smaller producers to buy in smaller numbers to get started or replace cattle that are too old to be productive
You may pay slightly higher price but know what breeding and quality your getting

You might look on - cattle range - website has large and small herds all different ages and pairs
for sale and you can search by region and breed to find something that might work for your need
