What's​ the other half breed?


There mothers are about every breed in the book, mixed with some charlois. Every super baldy he bred, had a Hereford looking calf, or a motley red face. A few straight angus, had a diluted looking smoke calf. There's a calf laying with them, that's barely visible. It's out of a blaze face black sim heifer, and its is jet black with a blaze face.

When I lost the ability to post pictures, and lost my old pictures, it made threads like this obsolete.

The Longhorn cow in last pic is sure beefiest one I ever seen. It seems that the longhorns are getting beefier nowadays.

Talked to my vet a few years ago he tested two of my cows butterfat (no idea how bloody expensive) it’s 25 or so percent higher than normal “British breeds” he said.

Those two are half sisters. The horn cow is by an above average Mexican bull.

Cattle of any breed can be protective. If he got a horn up his A he might learn to leave nature alone?

I had a calf born last year about this time that looked just like that one, but mine was only 1/16 Longhorn.
