Bits,spurs, and knives. The ranch. Any thing else I do.

We have collected quite few corriente cows over the years. We keep most of our heifers from the roping pen, watch the sale barns and papers, and pick them up cheap two or three at a time.
These cows will average about 900 pounds, live on almost nothing, and raise a calf as big as they are. They can cover a lot more ground in a day than any other breed, and will. They don't hang around the water or feed ground waiting, they get out and hustle.
I put angus bulls with mine and get a good calf, most end up in the feed lot with the rest of our calves and do just fine.
