What are you try to accomplish? A hereford bull over the SG cows make some very good replacements that will bring top dollar.

With the beefmasters, you have a lot of choices. You can do well making terminal calves with a Angus, Limo or Charolais bull.

Your location may also make a big difference.

Yes. Good quality beefmasters sell good at the barn around here. You can put Black Angus bulls across both also and do good.
