Good idea to go the Braford way. Here in Australia most Brafords are about 5/8 Brahman 3/8 Hereford. To have more Hereford you just cannot compete. The more Brahman the better especially in the hotter areas.
Most Braford breeders here in Australia would never have 3/8 Brahman. Not enough to get the good Brahman benefit.
Most people on this board are interested in how the cattle will perform
in the good ole US of A. You have a different climate in northern Au.
than most of the south, southeast, midwest, northwest US of A. The amount Brahman influence that you want in your part of Australia
we do not necessarily need here. The U S of A cattle can do quiet well
with the British and Continental breeds and some areas may need 3/8
or less Brahman Influence for the majority of the market here.
