Negative, Ghost Rider. I have had several Brahma x Chi and Chi X Brahma cows in the past, and they were as gentle and easy to work as any Hereford or Shorthorn there is. And, they were AWSOME baby-raising machines! I met a client in the late 90's that bred and showed draft horses in competition. He also showed a team of oxen. Half Chi and half Holstein. He kept about 5 Holstein cows he'd AI to a Chi bull, and about 5 Chi cows he AI'ed to Holstein bulls, in order to get some of these steers. After I met him, I got to buying the heifers out of these crosses, and they were gentle as could be as well. Bred them to Brangus, and they were also calf-raising machines. About 1999, he took a notice to try to raise bucking bulls, and set about developing his own "breed": A 3-way cross of Longhorn, Brahman and Chianina. He bought a young Chi bull at that time, because it was hard for him to move the Longhorns through the working facilities he had to AI. You could lead that bull around like a lead-line pony.I know a couple people that claim the most consistently wild cattle they've ever seen were F1 Chianina X Brahman crosses.
Local guys got together and bought a few FB Chi bulls back in the 80s and tried that cross. They haven't seen one in about 20-years because they weren't brave enough to try it again.
How many do you need, Johnny?Howdy , here is what it is : I am from NYC I moved to Texas to come out with a new breed of beef . I have raised and shown horses on Long Island and also sold feed ect. The Chianina is the cow I would like to perchas the sire will remain anonymous I ain't talkin , I rented a ranch just need pure blood full blood Chianina heff deal Ha ! I've been doing stuff like this my whole life , life's a blast with good success
The need crossed with something. Big crazy fools that don't give a pint of milk at a feeding time. A neighbor bought a angus bull from this place that had part Chiangus in him.
He wasn't as bad as I figured, but I sure wouldn't have wanted him.
Look at a pic of this bull, heck he could jump over a cow.
I still have a lifetime membership in the Chianina association. I see fullbloods as somewhat like having a stable of thoroughbred
race horses in that it takes a lot of commitment and resources. From my viewpoint the half and 3/4 blood can be challenging to say
the least. I made a choice not to be involved with them,'God Bless the boys, who make the noise on 16th Avenue' they are not for me!
Without looking I think I had Fignolo (?) bloodline I will say the big bulls are awe inspiring
