Cross breeding

Help Support CattleToday:

Welcome! What specifically do you want to know? What breeds make up your f1 black baldies... Angus x Hereford?
Correct, angus x Hereford. Curious if it would be a good cross I guess. Color doesn't really matter to me. I'm sure I'd get about 50/50 mix of red hided or black hided calves out of them. But I'm always looking for replacement quality.
Simmental bull is continental blooded. Your F1 baldies are british blooded. That will result in extra growth called hybrid vigor. Ok if you are breeding cows, but may cause calving problems when breeding heifers. jeanne - simmie valley is a well known simmental breeder on this forum. What is the name and registration number of the red simmental bull?
