I have a fewMurray Grey crosses and have an angus bull on them. They have thrown some nice calves but they areall grey but one. The heifers are going to be kept for replacements and one of the girls is going to my freezer. (she only has one eye) The steers are going to the market and I anticipate a discounted price because they aren't black. These cows really grow the babies so I am going to try a Gelbvieh homogoonous black bull to try to get the black on the calves. Correct me please if I have that messed up. Bottom line I like these cows and their maternal aspects. Gentle to handle but will get your tail for a few days over their new borns.
