I am building air castles for harder times. Is a cow that has the survivabilty of a Brammer and Longhorn in solid red or black with out the loose hide, horns and wild colors with growth.
Man get a herd of these calf losses would almost not exsist and you would have a cow you could raise on land so poor you couldn't raise an umbrella sitting on a sack of fertilizer.

Poled Hereford bull on Brahman cows, retain the red baldies. This is as close as I can get, and my goal by the way.
That lose skin may be a problem. I hear you can get rid of wrinkles with Preparation H. :lol:

Other then the solid part there is already a breed that can or used to be able to do it. They're called Herefords

Preparation H works on male pattern baldness too. Doesn't grow hair but it shrinks the scalp so what hair you do have looks thicker.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

You might give just a little consideration to the quality of the meat you'd be producing.

I’ll help you’ll out if they will train to be good mob grazers in my weeds I meant pastures. But my buyer has been wanting more black cow mixed in with the mutts I have now.


I thought Preparation H was used for putting under your eyes Sunday morning so you don’t look like you were drinking all night when you dress up and show boat at church like you have been good.

Hmm…

That is a good idea. Those don't eat anything in the summer. Drought or no drought. They just hang out in the stock tank and under the shade trees until October.

The problem is no milk for their calves tho.

I think Herefords can lay all that worries to rest.

CB have a look at Tulis or my favourite, Afrikaners, both have excellent meat quality, very hardy and solid colours. The Tulis are polled as well.
