Lol, and I thought you were a walking encyclopedia of everything bovine.
They are 1/4 Hereford, 1/4 Red Holstein, and 1/2 Red Angus.
Check them out. http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/cattle/

Of course, it's the 3waycross :cowboy:

Seriously we are looking at something similar and should have the first calves on the ground soon. Gelbvieh/ShorthornxRed Angus. Hoping for polled solid or almost solid red calves and mommas that milk real well. Also hopefully no darned calves to pull.

I'm suprised that no one so far has known this breed. I haven't seen any in a long time, but I thought someone would have atleast heard of them.

That's what I thought. I'm thinking about doing a poll on Appendix breeds too.

I voted droughtmaster because I were so impressed with the bull I saw on here yesterday. Otherwise santa gertrudis and beefmaster are my favourites ( albeit my experience from these breeds in real life is zero; I have read lots of good about them).
There are no composites here in sweden, but I am making one out of swedish red, piedmontese and a few nature breeds. It is supposed to be gold brindle when it is completed.

Droughtmaster,South Brahvon,Charbray are my picks for performance in rugged harsh Australian climates. For the softer areas I'd say Black Baldy and South Devon/Angus (called Australis here in Australia) Though Higher Angus content Brangus are allright same goes for higher Charolais content Charbray.
Each to their own.

Could be it hasn;t been heard about much because it's pretty much a useless cross. Almost in the same category as black Herefords ot unBalancers.

Just my effort to get ANAZAZI to switch the vote to BLACK BRANGUS.

I voted for Beefmaster, but that is because I have quite a few of those, and they do well in the Oklahoma hot summers, and forage. But around here, Brangus is a huge choice also.

I think you will be happy with the addition of Piedmontese. Please share pictures when they hit the ground! :tiphat:
