Welcome. I'm from Whitehall and currently live near Lynn Grove, and I'm interested in Brangus and Hereford cattle.

You'll find the general consensus will strongly recommend you forget about registered Black Hereford bulls.
Narrowing your remaining choice to Simmental... Live Ammo is one you might like.

If your goal is to get white faced calves, I'd recommend a traditional Hereford.

Welcome. May I suggest that you listen to Rafter S. His Brangus and Hereford breed combination suggestion is spot on for most of Texas (although I prefer red or yellow cattle over black hided). I believe every commercial cow in Texas needs to be 1/4 to 1/2 Brahman influence bred to a terminal cross bull.
