The want to give folks as many coices as Herefords and Angus.
Angus RED or black, Herefords Polled or horned.
What a deal

No apologies necessary. I am not trying to be rude but just stating the facts.txshowmom":1dqiiskl said:Your the guru! I was just repeating what I was told by someone that SHOULD have known. My apoligies.
Because of the tred with the Certified Angus Beef Program people have it in their head that black is better, therefore it is worth more. Angus beef is not superior. I am not trying to down the Angus people we run an Angus bull wiyth our heifers, but I have been told by people in the beef industry that anything black can be sold as certified Angus beef. Black may or may not be better, but it definatle sells better.

(Any other Canucks see that article?)
Used to be that when you saw a solid black animal up here, you knew it was an Angus. Couple years back at the local fair, an exhibitor had three different breeds of bulls there that he was showing. All lined up one after the other in his holding area, I had to read the placards above them to discover which breed they represented. All very long, deep, thick, well-balanced black animals and not one of them an Angus. If I remember correctly, he had the Grand Champion bull of the show, and it was an amazing Gelbvieh, as well as a Simmental and a Limousin. It's sure going to be odd when these black Chars start appearing at the bull sales.
