Using Gelbveih bulls with crossbred cattle

I made a deal with my neighbor to use a couple of his top quailty Gelbvieh bulls. It's a little late to be asking this because my cows are getting ready to start calving, but what kind of calves should I expect with cross bred cows. Think I should have some good replacement heifers to keep or what about some Gelbveih influenced bulls to sell at the local markets? On my Spring calvers we are going to do some embryo transplants to sell back to the original embryo owners. Any comments would be great. Thanks!

You can expect some pretty good maternal cows, but you may get a bit of frame creep depending on the genetic size of your cows and the bull.

you will have great replacement heifers and good steers, don't think half bloods bulls will have good market
