Sure looks like a mixed breed calf to me. Could be part Angus, Jersey, Limousine or any other breeds. I doubt it has Brahma.

Like the others said she looks to be just a crossbred black calf. Looks like she probably came from an older momma cow or a cow who didn't milk well, or she possibly could have been weaned too early. May not ever grow off good but it's possible that she could with good feed. Have you worked her?

Sorry can't help you but...For future reference....
When I buy something from the sale barn, when paying in the office I'll ask "Does anyone know what I bought or where it came from?" Sometimes someone will know right off the bat or often one of the gals will be nice enough to look it
up and give me any additional information they have and at times they have even provided the seller's name and
phone # if I have additional questions.

That's not a cow
That's a calf

Check her teeth for age. If she is adult she may be Lowline.
