Did you know if you breed a Hereford to a Holstein, you get a black-baldie? I can think of a few reasons for having such a cross, such as a tremendous milking cross to use for embryo recipients, or to breed to a beef bull to make a 1/3 Holstein, 2/3 beef heifer, which could then be bred to a terminal cross bull. Or, if you had some inferior milkers, and wanted to get more out of the calves at the sale barn.... what do you guys think? I have a friend who bred some of his holsteins to my Hereford bull.
