Orange/red calves with a white face. They probably won't get as much as black or bwf here but nothing is selling real well anyway right now..

Yellow white faced brings as good as anything here.
A neighbor friend put a good Hereford bull on his white cows 3 years ago and has the best looking calved he has ever had.

As has been said the resulting calves will be yellow/orange white faced. I have had some of them in the past, and thought they were good looking calves. I sold a few heifers of that cross a few years ago, and I still sometimes think I should have kept them for cows. I would imagine that black hided calves would out sell them in most areas, even though the yellow calves may be as good or better comparatively.

Here is one of my Hereford Charolais cross. They sell good at the market but they make excellent momma too. I might add this one will not make a good momma. I have a friend that has a cross for his herd bull. He has some nice calves.

He will make one heck of a good steer though.

THE sale barn? There are lots and lots and lots of sale barns. Each local market has it's own set of preferences. If you're planning on selling your calves through your local barn, go ask those guys there. And, don't forget, the worst cattle of the preferred type/color won't sell as well as the best calves of some other type/color combination --- so take the time to try to raise good ones no matter what you pick. There are lots of people raising good Charolais and good Hereford cattle; you shouldn't have much trouble getting some good stock if that's the path you want to go down. Good luck to you.

Here's what you should see. In our area, these Tan Wf and Tan calves pretty much outsell everything else...

I have always liked the F1 black baldies as cows, but I have seen some really good Hereford/Charolais cows that are really good. They make terrific cows.
