Anyone have an idea about what kind of cows these make? There are around six different farms raising them now within a four to five hours drive from us. I was considering possibly buying some heifers. Good or bad idea?

Blondes will be a great breed if it is use as a terminal breed in a commercial basis, as breeding a registered herd it will be very similar to Charolais

They would be used commercially. If I get some of these heifers and they make good cows, I was actually thinking of eventually crossing them with a Simmental bull and keeping the best heifers out of that cross for replacements. Any thoughts on this?

I have a blonde bull and two 1/2 blood cows.I have found them to be very gentle I have got more money per pound for my calves from the blonde than the simmental. This year I`m going to breed 3 Simmentals to him.

If you don't mind me asking, where and for how much did you get the Blonde bull?
