I’d like to know also. We have about 90 or so bulls for our commercial cattle all registered pure bred angus, Simmental, beef booster etc. Kinda wanna see what they could do. All my longhorns are solid red or black except for 3 or 4

The spell check/auto correct version of a Beefmaster......I'd guess.

Google Beefbooster and Beefmaster totally different. Beef master is a Brahman cross. Beefbooster is British breed cross developed in Calgary

Same age.... different sires of different breeds...
Left calf is a Charolais x Longhorn and the right calf is full longhorn calf. Pic belongs to a good friend.

90 bulls? Wow. Purebred Beefboosters? Do they come with registration papers? The neighbors got hosed if yours have them.

As an order buyer friend of mine can be quoted...... "Beefboosters are most bastardized mongrel "breed" anyone ever thought up."

I have seen a lot of them personally, no consistancy in colour, shape or sixe. They don't top the market here but they a a damsite better than longhorns.
