we put a good grey Brahman over a nice group of baldie cows, calves are better than average but their color was not uniform, I believe we had around 20 calves, most all had blaze face,

I think you can sure count on getting your ass kicked on half of your calves. The further south you are in Texas, the less it will hurt. But you'll still feel it.

if you want baldies with a "little" ear why not just use a brangus/hereford combination?

by doing it the way you're talking about, you'd have 1/2 brahman, & imo, that's more than a "little" ear.

I agree. Super baldies make a nice cross...

maybe you should ask them? :?

by using brangus/hereford, you have less than 1/4 brahman.

the problem i have with the ways you mentioned is that you're still getting too much ear. brangus bulls on F1 females gives you 7/16 brahman. and brahman bull on baldy cows gives you 1/2 brahman. the females will do ok, but the steers will take a hit at the barn.

Wil the brangus/hereford cross steers be alright? Or will they still take a hit?

that would depend on your area and your market.
