BREEDING CHARBAR, BRAFORD, BRANGUS COWS

Post by DiamondD » Sat Nov 11, 2017 8:54 pm

I have charbray and brangus cows.
I'm looking to get some tigerstripe calves next spring.
Will a Hereford bull throw tigerstripe calves with these cows.? Thanks

I don't know about the Charbray, but I doubt they'll be tigers. You'll get mostly black white-faced calves, with a few red white-faced, from the Brangus.

Off the top of my head I don't know of any bull that will throw tigers from those cows.

If you want tigerstripe heifers next spring, you're gonna have to buy them

Hereford or Brahford would be your best bet, no guarantees.

Most of the Charbray will be yellow white face. Brangus Black baldie.
As 5S stated if you want tigers your going to be buying.

Here you go Hereford/Charbray cross cow, the calf is half Angus.
That Char diluter gene pops out from time to time.
