Brittish White/White Park

I have a dairy crossbred Brittish White Heifer. I am trying to decide what to breed her to. The Whites are hard to locate around here and AI is hard since I have her and a few Irish Dexters. I do not want to order up semen for her only.

I would like to know if anyone has eaten the Whites. What is the meat quality, lean or Marbled. Is crossing her with Angus or Herford good?

I have a few whites they cut as good as angus, they cross great with Angus. There is a large BW ranch down the road from me, I picked up 3 a while back to experment with my Herefords. The whites are great cattle I have been impressed so far.

if you want to keep it White, a good idea will be Charolais or any of the Italians (Romagnola, Marchigiana or Chianina)

I would go with a british breed if she is a Xbred dairy X British White Heifer. I wouldn't even consider a continental breed.

Thanks for your quick info. I think that this time around I will do Angus, that is the easiest bull for me to get.

If you are AI'ing use the best Angus bull for the traits that you need.
On the EPD's pay particular attention to the accuracy.
