I've got four to show you guys (and gals) today:

Two week old heifer calf out of fullblood Piedmontese cow

Three month old heifer calf out of Scottish Highland cow

Seven week old heifer out of commercial black Angus cow

One week old bull calf out of a Belted Galloway cow

I should have a couple more Aubrac x. Piedmontese calves to show in the next few weeks. As they grow, I'll post some updates.

The sires used were of our breeding.

Now you need one from a Hereford, a brahma, and a zebu for a complete set..

Nice pictures. Interesting cattle. Very healthy.

Tell us what your objective is using several breeds.

The only one that's mine is the F1 Angus cross. The plan (assuming she turns out) is to breed the F1 to a top AI black Angus bull as an example of what an F1 Aubrac sired female can do...then, she'll be a recip for us.

The others are owned by a client who posts here from time to time. He gave permission to post pictures of his calves. He's traveling right now and I suspect he'll comment when he's able.

3/4 Angus is a good cross, the market likes em more than a fullblood.

3/4 British 1/4 Brahman heifer is on this side of fence and cow is 3/4 British 1/4 Brahman. The other feeder calves are 7/8 British. Next year the heifer crosses the fence to go with other 3/4 cows.

Here is another pic of one of our Aubrac x Piedmontese F1 calves taken this morning. We are very happy and impressed with our Aubrac sired calves

Those are some of our calves that Walnut Crest has posted. We bought our Aubrac bull from him as an embryo calf and are very pleased with him to say the least.

The Highlands and Belties are just cheap pasture-fillers we bought as we build up our cow herd. They will soon be replaced by Aubracs and select Aubrac F1 crosses such as the Aubrac x Piedmontese.

I'd like to see them on some Gelbvieh and Salers.. I think both could look pretty nice

I'm happy to try to help make that happen should any producers in either breed care to give a test a go ... :) ... that cross should make some nice F1 mama cows, to be sure.

I wish my pockets were deep enough, and that you were a little closer

For the right buyer, I can deal...

For the right buyer and the right deal, I can haul...

You're running out of excuses, sir! :D
