Baldies, baldies, baldies everywhere!

So far I've liking the cross from the hereford bulls on Angus & belties.

A nice 3way cross bull calf. He should be a nice steer in the fall.

Nice F1 black baldy bull.

Another F1 bull

A 3way cross heifer calf. She should be a nice feeder.

A nice F1 red baldy heifer out of a registered red Angus cow. Her dam is in the background. We might keep her as a replacement.

An update pic of our "hereford" heifer. We decided to keep her as a replacement.

I like those baldies. I also agree with the decision to keep the Hereford heifer Breed her to an Angus bull and get another baldie.

Still remember from 40 years ago an old timer telling me the only way to beat a baldy cow was with a club.

Seems to be working well. Not getting excessive white, just about right amount for a baldy. Besides the one hereford marked one.

Red Angus cow and calf are nice. The calf is definitely a keeper of she is as deep ribbed as her dam

Gotta love a nice baldy. Hereford X Angus is one of the best crosses IMO.
