Um... Could you explain that?

Specifically: What's an "F1"? Do two cows count as a herd? And how do I look for a Hereford breeder from around here in MI?

I have to admit (rather shamefacedly) that I forgot to mention I only have 6 and a half acres (the last half-acre being swampy) to work with.

I picked up a book on raising beef cattle and what I've read so far is helpful, especially about thinking genetics and such. But I'm a little intimidated. I'm thinking of starting on raising and selling Deacon Calves to get a start and some practice before I pick out a breed and move on from there.

The breeds look very interesting... Where can I find more information about them?
