Thanks, Ron.

Alacowman we have 90-100 pound coy dogs and coyotes running loose everywhere. Those horns make em keep their distance.

They also keep my cousin's 2,000 lb cow killer Brangus bulls on his side of the fence. That 2 year old Prophet son is only a frame 5.

He figured if he got the biggest bulls he could find the calves will gain faster than his Charolais sired calves...you gotta have pasture for em to grow. After he loses a bunch and spends all calving season pulling calves he'll learn his lesson.

How far north do you think the F-1 tiger stripe is superior to other breeds of cattle?

I have thought hard about trying a few I’m just afraid those single digits and negative temps will cause me problems.

Now this is just my two cents in playing with them over the last four decades.
The ones showing more Hereford characteristics seem to hair over better.
They are tough cattle that deliver results in temperatures other breeds would melt.
IMOO if I were looking for Brahman influences in your neck of the woods I would look at Brangus or Gerts.
