Yes. I've done Angus on purpose and if there is a Char bull with in a 5 mile radius most people end up with some Char calves.

BM cows with either bull. Not really a reason to do it the other way. You can never go wrong with good BM cows no matter the bull. It's just a matter of what color you want to paint the calves.

need to be careful, beefmasters have bone, then add the char to the mix, more bone, then add a funnel but to the lot and well you might have lack issues. Both crosses work, but I think staying away from a 3way would be best in this case.

You'd be hard pressed to create a better calf than what you'd get putting terminal type char bulls over f1 angus/beefmaster cows.

My cow Millie is out of a pure Charolais cow and a registered Angus bull. I've bred her the past 2 years to a registered Beefmaster bull. The calves have been Very nice. No excessive bone and very good gain. The calf is the black heifer in the front

BM crossed with either makes one calf raising mama. The BM x Angus (Red Angus) brought down the cow size some, plus they seemed to reach puberty younger.

3 way cross maximizes hybred vigor after that the percent goes down.
Lots of data from the major Ag universities on crossbreeding systems to maximize hybred vigor.
With BM you have a standardized composite that will breed true not a crossbred.
