F1 BLACK BALDIES
The Crossbred (F1) Cow – The only “free lunch” in the cattle business.
Reproductive traits are the most economically important traits in commercial beef cattle production and respond most to crossbreeding. Research has shown that a crossbred cow is 8% more efficient than a purebred cow, lives 38% longer and has 25% more lifetime production in pounds of calf weaned.
Hybrid Vigor – it’s free, and nothing is spared to achieve it.
Heterosis (the added advantage in performance of crossbred over the average of its purebred parents )and Hybrid vigor are buzzing in the cattle industry as of late. Using Hereford bulls on Angus based cows will give producers advantages in profitability, cash flow, herd size, and retained fertility and longevity. Not to mention, the crossbred animal is hardier than a straightbred animal.
We will be offering Black Baldies via private treaty in the near future, so please continue to check back with us, or give us a call at 406-425-2252 for more information on the baldies.
