What about the Irish blacks? Any experience? Due to recent unfortunate events, im at ground zero and that's a potential option....

I don't know much about the Irish Blacks, but they do look nice. Kinda pricey...what do they bring to the table that any other black cow does not? Interested to hear!

Are you referring to the Irish strain of Aberdeen Angus? Can't find them in my usual references.

Yeah it is I thought it was interesting that they came from mostly ''Beef'' Holstein and a little black angus.

Not often that you hear that Holstein fertility is high.
