A DM bull would be a Droughtmaster. Too long a word easier and cheaper than writing the whole thing. Often I see words that make me laugh.Just like the media reporting stories. Heard a beauty the other day when they had a those terrorist raids in Melbourne. They said the raid happened at 4.30 in the morning, they said that locals were out in the street in their pyjamas. They would hardly have been in suits would they?

I want Awesome Looking Highlands, ALH, bred to a Fabulous Drought Master, FDM.
Yes that would be fine.
And use a Terrific Blonde daquitaine, TBLD, as a terminal on the offspring.
And put ads in australian press, marketing TBLD/FDM/ALHs! :wave:

Apparently crossbred Jerseys are supposed to look like Brown Swiss & Purebred Jerseys are all honey gold with black points - we were told this by a "40+gentlemen" after he & his father arrived from Forbes 7.5hrs away, he than proceded to have a dummy spit because "he'd be laughed out of Forbes if he took them" I turned around & opened the yard gates & let the heifers back out. His dummy spit ended up costing him more than he thought $1500 truck hire,15+hrs wasted & they followed their gps, which got them lost. His father was nice enough though.

The Black Bawly ones are hereford/angus cross, often called black baldy.
I see Loosen Hay advertised in the produce section, as well as Road Grass.
Black Bawly could be just black cows that are really noisy (bawl a lot)

Haha, that's what I said to Keren. If it mean's they cry a lot then I've had a few of those." :lol:
