I have seen several so called Black Herefords. Have yet to see a top quality Black Hereford. Much of the issue is the quality of the cattle used too create the original cattle. There are some breeders who in the last few years who have used top quality Hereford bloodlines in an effort to upgrade them. They still have a long ways too go. In my experience the quality of the other black hided stabilized crosses are far superior in quality. Anyone who claims the current BH’s are top quality have a different opinion of what a quality animal is.
