a lot of people around here are selling out of there herfords for a pretty nice price i have heared and seen a lot of bad things about herfords and there udders after they get a little age. i was wandering if it would be worth the chance to maybe purchace a few and cross with a brangus i would think this would help on some of the falling and swelling on the replacements with them beining 50% brangus. would this cross still give you a black baldie

Yes you'll get black baldies, assuming you are using a homozygous black Brangus bull. To be charitable I'll say that Herefords have an unorthodox looking udder. However, haven't seen any more Hereford udders broken down then any of the other breeds. If you get into a line of very heavy milking Herefords, and there are some, you will have the same udder problems that you would have with a very heavy milking Angus, Shorthorn, Jersey, Simmenthal, whatever.
