Balancers are no more prone to inkeye then angus or Gelbvieh. Their dispositions are basically the same as both parent breeds. The get highbrid figor in a straight bred herd they should work out pretty well. If you have either a Gelbvieh or Angus based hered you won;t get the maximum heterosis possible. I wouldn;t use them on continental breeds, you normally already have all the frame you need on those cows. The should provide very good maternal traits as well.

Like dun said, since Balancers are a blend of registered Gelbvieh and Angus (red or black) they are no more prone to pinkeye than any of the parent breeds.
Balancers can be between 25% and 75% Gelbvieh and the balance being Angus. Most people assume that Balancers are 50% Gelbvieh/50% Angus. So, you need to ask what the percentages are when purchasing Balancers.
If your current herd has a large percentage of Continental blood (Charolais, Simmental, Limousin,...) you likely want a Balancer that has at least 50% Angus. If your herd is primarily British breeding (Angus, Shorthorn, Hereford, S. Devon) you will probably want 50%+ Gelbvieh.
Now, with all that being said, if your cattle are sold on a grid that rewards marbling, you need to continue with a higher percentage of Angus. If your cattle typically go into grids that reward you for improved yield, you probably want to use a higher percentage of Gelbvieh.
