This a commercial calf out of a purebred bull. The cow is a commercial but straight bred Hereford.

That's a nice looking calf. I would guess it had Simmi in it somewhere down the line if I saw it in a field and didn't know it's sire and dam.

I think he's just mismarked Hereford.

Regardless of what the color pattern is that`s still a nice calf. When we had more Shorthorn influence in our herd we never knew what color pattern we might get. Really the only ones that took a big hit when we sold them as feeders was the roans and they could be the nicest calves but they sold them separate sometimes for just a little over Holstein price. We only have 3 cows now with much Shorthorn in them for that reason.

So, Ky Hills my youngest daughter thinks he would make a good 1st 4-h steer.

I'm sure some Simmi in there. The non traditional Hereford markings are real common in one segment of the Hereford breed. And why a person has to be careful when purchasing one or he will have a very non uniform colored set of calves along with several phenotypes.

Thanks I'm honored to have had one of our calves considered for that.

Thank you, it's the bull part of the equation that I'm interested in.

You are welcome. That is the sire and dam #'s of the bull that the calf pictured is out of.
