He is black. Most heteroblack calves are that color until they shed out their baby hair. Generally, the nose, eyes, tail are more black looking than the body. That is a common color in my herd of calves, LOL

Thanks. I ask a lot of questions. Trying to learn all I can. My dad does it do it old school , cheap cows, black bull and sell is March. It works for him because he has 1,000 acres of hay and they eat left over hay. Question, how do Sim-Angus calves turn out ? Weaning weights? I have a few big angus cows and thinking of ai one and keeping it if it’s a bull. Thanks

Sim-Angus is about the hottest crossbreds around. They make great feedlot calves and super momma cows. Should increase weaning weights. If you keep the steers to finish for freezer, you will be able to get great marbling with less outside fat.
