If the worst thing that could happen to you is a pair of Whitefaced calves, you are luckier than anyone else I've known in the cattle business. Count your blessings, Junior!farmboy said:what does the post say, ive been hunting forever to find the other half of pale face
Well, the Hereford Whiteface tends to be more prepotent than the Fleckvieh (Simmental) white facial markings, for sure. Even harder one to "breed out" is the diluter gene. Dad's got a cow that's only 1/16 Charolais, and, bred to a Gelbvieh Bull (Non-diluter), she had a yellow calf this year. You guys are gonna get "Smokies" for years ( even when the fad fades away), if you have added these sires to your club-calf producing bull battery.farmboy said:weve had about 75 % baldies or patch faced in 4 years
garybob, im not complaining, its just that I solved an argument with some fellas about the white face and am rejoicing (lol) Lots of people will blame simmental for that.
If you dont want baldies, hereford face is hard to get out. All calves have been 1/16 herf and 75-80 % have been patched face or baldies (nothing wrong with baldys)...
