which way is the best to cross for tiger stripes brah-here or here-brah

Unfortunately this is also the most $$ way, since Brahman cows will cost more than Herefords.

When you use Brahman cows with and exotic or cont bull then the hybred vigor takes over after they calf is born. Therefore you have a small birth weigh but the calf will grow quickly. Now I am not trying to start a debate or make anyone mad but that is how it has been explained to me.
