If it's herf x angus I'd say char and you'll have a good balance. As someone said, the docking at the market might be irrelevant if the euro cross calves are much heavier.
I am sure alot of these baldy cows are not homozygous black. Therefore if you breed them to any bull that is not homozygous black you are going to get some red calves that will be discounted or if you breed to a char bull you could get off white or even charcoal gray which would also be discounted.
