Actually I am just getting started with this cross. A family friend runs Gerts and I just loaded a few heifers. So far, I'm not so impressed with them. They have not calved for me yet, but I have been picking up on some of the Gerts negative publicity. They seem to have an "attitude." May just be me but I'm not looking forward to calving season with them. They will probably calm down with hereford thrown on them, and they seem to be impressive in growth. I kind of like Duns suggestion with the Gelbvieh. From what I have been reading, they seem to be a good maternal breed, and quiet....which is a plus.

We love our gert x chars, but we sometimes get all white calves when we go back with char bull. Do you experience the same with your crossess.
