My dad is breeding a red brahman bull to his hereford cows. What are his calves going to look like? Are the cows going to have any calving problems? Any information would help.

He should have some goodlooking beefy red calves with brockle faces. Should not be any calving problems.

Where are you located? I know some people who might be interested in the heifers.

Whether he has calving problems depends on the bull and the cows. Does the bull have EPD's? What was his birth weight? Many Brahman bulls will throw smaller calves, but there are plenty that will have big ones too.

That's a good cross.. you'll get some good looking tiger stripes.

Thanks for the picture. I hope I can get some calves that look half as good as that. I leave east of Dallas too. :lol:
