Put Some Chrome On That Calf

Registered black Herefords are something new here in Canada. We have been in the Hereford business for over twenty years now starting out with the traditional red white faced , feather necked, cattle. Ten years ago I found a website where the breeder was selling registered Black Herefords and we began by purchasing a black Angus bull from KBJ farms. Those bulls were crossed with our purebred Herefords to give us the F1 heifers that we needed to start our own operation.
Black Hereford cattle need to be 62.5 % Hereford before they can be registered, therefore; those F1 heifers, being 50% were bred Hereford to increase that Hereford blood, and so it goes.
Opinions range that the calves are just baldies but baldies can be any cross. These calves are Hereford/Angus cross and are bred to increase the Hereford blood.. They come with registration papers and epd’s.
We also do dna on the calves that might be homozygous black. Homozygous Black Hereford bulls will produce black white faced calves out of red cows where a heterozygous bull , might produced a red calf. Black calves out of red cows carry a red gene, and therefore are heterozygous.
This is one of the Angus Bulls we started with KBJ Predom 36Y
