I would like to thank you both for your hospitality Saturday. I greatly appreciate your assistance with the task of helping me with the decision of the breed of cattle for our project.
 
The field day and viewing the cattle was very helpful. Based on what I absorbed for the discussion, my initial thoughts are to begin with Red Brangus cows on coastal property and Red Angus cows in northeast Texas and eastern Oklahoma.
 
I took home the idea that we are on the ground floor of an opportunity to help expand the Akaushi breed in the US by saving the replacement heifers and continuing to breed them back to the best Akaushi bulls to reach purebred status.
 
Once we proceed with our business plan I will be back in touch regarding our taking part in becoming a member of the AAA and proceeding with building our herd.
 
Sincerely,
 
John Hanson
