When I started with miniature zebu, I didn't know a thing. I began with asking around. Oldtime ranchers didn't want to enlighten me about terms like "springing heifers" and such. So I had to learn on my own, combing through the web for years (I still do). Yes, mini zebu are cows, but they can be really different from Bos Taurus cattle. For instance, if you feed a zebu the same as a beef or dairy cow, you'll make them fat, and a fat zebu is a very bad thing. I began writing articles especially for zebu people. Here are some of the articles; at the end of this page are some newspaper and magazine articles about me and my zebu.
