What would the result be if I bred a tigerstripe cow to a tigerstripe bull?

Would be concidered a F2...with less hybrid vigor than the F1.. And unless you got a specific plan for them I wouldn't recommend it ....

I was really just wondering. We(my husband and I) always sold the bulls and I never questioned it. Unfortunately, he's no longer here for me to ask why. Just one of the hundreds of things I wish I would've asked him. Thank you for being kind.

There is no guarantee they would be tiger stripe.
. that wouldn't bother me as much. As losing the hybrid vigor

The market doesn't know Jack about hybrid vigor. They just want the look. I see junk tiger stripes peddled all day long.

Don't be afraid to ask for more help. Not asking can be costly.

I see tiger bulls on CL all the time too. I wouldn't call this one 'junk' but lots of them are out there.
