What is the best type of bull to breed to polled hereford cattle to get calves that will sell on the market?

We show hereford, when it comes to lead breaking we have sometimes wait up till the week before show to break them & they tame down within a coouple of days, but some of the other people who have angus they've been working them since they started and still haven't tamed down. They are always the first to kick not saying a hereford won't but you really have to tick a hereford off for it to kick you! :lol:

same in our area. unless those "heavy muscled" continental breeds are disguised as those "poor muscled" british breeds, i.e. black sim, lm, maine, etc they are docked at the ring. even the evident crosses as was suggested are docked. anything w/a blaze face (not white face), stockings or paint marks bring lower prices.
