Thinking about going to pick these girls up to breed with a hereford bull. How much brahman do you think they are. These are the only pics I have right now.

The others he has look tigerstripe, charolias cross and a hodge podge of breeds. This is a group he put together. These are the only 2 I am considering.

I don't claim to be an authority on the breed, but I'd say they're at least 3/4, and maybe more.

I agree in that neighborhood as I have some that are known to be 3/4 with similar color pattern and ear.

There is not way to guarantee a tiger even with pure blood Brahman X Hereford. You can get braford looking cattle, chocolate baldies, tigers, tiger mots, etc.

There are also other ways to get tigers other than Brahman X Hereford.

Not all Tigers are F1s either.

My favorite. Most buyers would walk right past her looking for tigers too. :)
