Was looking at buying some bred heifers this year and happened to find a large group of gelbvieh crosses that I called on. Talked to the guy and turns out they were half jersey. Said they had been doing some research and this came up as a very good maternal mix and had been selling large groups for some years now with a lot of uniformity due to the ai they use on the jersey and gelbvieh side. They have high fertility and good grading with cows weighing in th11-1200 pound range. The preferred crossback was charolais and that you couldn't tell that the calves had jersey in them. Just curious if anyone had experience with them as mommas and how they did especially how they would handle being housed outside in winter drylot.
