Arancher":rlgbs4eo said:I have a few crossbred Beefmaster heifers that i breed to Brangus bulls and love them. They are gentle, milk well and raise a very good calf. I notice if you are raising pure breds to sell at sale bars you get a reduction because of the colors that come up. I get solid black calves with the bull and get premium prices for the cales. I believe you will be very satisfied with that choice if you go there.
They might have slightly less leather. In Your area, why not consider an Angus Bull. There are several good breeders fairly close around you. Ellis is having a dispersion next month.otistee":1nd1tjyl said:would beefmasters crossed with brangus have to much leather ? They dock you over the scale for to much leather, here in north alabama.
Beefy":bz7skosh said:I have only positive things to say about Beefmasters. we run beefmaster bulls, angus bulls, and 3/4 limousin 1/4 angus bulls on our cows, most of which are at least half beefmaster. the limangXbeefmaster calves have topped the sale for the last 3 years we've sold. the angus cross heifers make excellent moms and are just a little brangusy but not too much. we have a lot of beefmaster cows that are white faced and when we breed them to black bulls we get a fair percentage of black white face calves which sell very well here. In the past we have used charolais and simmental bulls and these crossed well with the beefmaster cows too but everybody around here wants black calves now so we are producing what everbody wants. I have to admit i like the black ones too though.
