I'm assuming that's a Hereford bull, right? It's funny how some cut more white than others. I've got a polled hereford cow that has F243 as her MGS. She has that feather neck, white chest, and lineback that so many F243's had. But when I breed her to my Angus bull, every calf comes out with almost no white, even on the face. Just some white "eyebrows".

good looking calves do you prefer the bald face over what i call the blaze like the first calf

Don;t care on bull calves, on heifers I don;t really care either as long as the eye is pigmented. I don;t mean colored hair around the eye, the pigmentation on the eye itself

How much white you get makes quite a bit of difference on what is in the Angus equation. I have used Angus on Herefords and vice versa and sometime you just never know for sure. I had one Angus bull that was a 9FB3 son that seldom covered the eyes.
