I wouldn't anticipate any problems with this mating. Of course there are several unknowns including:
1.does the bull have a reputation of being a hard calving bull 2. if he hasn't sired calves before, does he have smooth shoulder and was in moderate in size at birth 3.is the MG cow of in good condition and had prior calves with no problems.
> just use some common sense, I don't know about white parks but a square shouldered frame score 6.5 definitly shouldn't be bred to an old style 900 murray even tho murray would contribute 1/2 of the gen pkg and are good calvers
