ive only had two types of cross breds that were true F1's that was tigers and simbrahs,,, the the brahman/ herf cross was my most early maturing of the two due too the hereford im sure, out of the some of the same brahman cows.. the simbrahs would hit another growth spurt or two on me and mature later.. of the two i prefered the brahman/herf crossbred cow... but a angus/ hereford baldy moma is fertile as you can get... great mother's they are the money makersUncle Dude":3ssm3d7y said:Crossbreed cows usually have higher conception rates compared to pure breed cows. I was wondering which cross works best for you and how high your pregnancy rate is using bulls in the field?
Thanks in advance.

I don;t think the angus Hereford cross could possibly fix the no butt from the Wagyu sideRD-Sam":1vtczr5c said:

i understand what your saying on the rear cuts,, but why aint more folks raising those gimlet ass cattleRD-Sam":19q96z88 said:dun":19q96z88 said:
Anytime you think of Wagyu, you are not thinking of a nice rump or phenotype, it's all about the meat quality with them. :lol2: Since the US is not as crazy about the cuts from the rear quarter, Wagyu is still a good choice.
