Victoria cattle

Postby Muddy » Tue Oct 31, 2017 6:59 pm

Anyone still using Victoria bulls or cows? Basically 3/4 Hereford 1/4 Brahman composite. I thought they will makes great cattle with Brahman blood for cold climates.

Doesn’t seem like there would be much difference from a braford?

I'm putting a f1 braford bull on a dozen Hereford cows as we speak. Didn't know they were called Victoria's.

Should be something like these.
Maybe they will grow up a little calmer being raised by the calmer Hereford cows. Maybe not.

My brother had several back in the day. He purged all the ear from his herd a long time ago though. I personally thought it was the best cows he had. I've always thought a homo black simmental bull would add enough heterosis to be interesting. The ear'd be down there at 1/8 and be black hided.

"Victorian Cattle" are a cross raised by Bob McCan here on the gulf coast. They are tough as nails cattle that will pack on the pounds but are big country cattle. There are videos of the ranch swimming them across the intracoastal to graze the islands.

Not sure why you would want them up north unless you have some rough country. The bulls across a herd of straight Hereford might do ok and could add some durability.

Better be a bulk buyer and get your name on the list. They have a slew of buyers that come in and buy 20, 30, 50 bulls a year. They usually get first pick.

Guess I should be more specific. :D I don't know why you would specifically want Victorian Cattle when you can get Brafords, Brangus, Beefmaster, etc all probably fairly close to you that are more acclimated already.

I'd rather have something that is less than 30% Brahman blood.

They are good cattle... Just be ready to handle them. They don't get a lot of exposure to people if they come straight off the ranch.

Why would you want Brahman influenced cattle up North? Unless your program includes rodeo stock. Makes no sense?

I might like to come take a look at them if you don't mind, unless you already have a buyer.

Anytime..
We're just getting the cows with the bull
Calves will be strung out through next summer. As some are just now calving Angus and Hereford calves. And some are wide open. Next year should get a tighter group.
Your welcome anytime to come look.
