We raise both Black Angus and Hereford cattle with the goal of cross breeding the two breeds of cattle. Black Angus cattle are known for their genetic traits that produce meat that is well marbled, tender and flavorful.
Good marbling means the fat and beneficial Omega-3 rich fatty acids are evenly dispersed throughout the meat, ensuring consistent texture, juiciness and most importantly delicious beef flavor.
Hereford cattle have a temperament that is very calm and docile, which allows for easy handling and good feed conversion efficiency. They are naturally "Low Input” cattle and have an excellent grass to meat conversion efficiency, meaning that their heirloom genetics allow them to more obtain the necessary nutrition from just eating pasture grass alone without the need for additional energy supplementation.
Cross breeding the and Angus and Hereford cattle produces an offspring that is commonly referred to as a “Black Baldie" or just "Baldie” that exhibits the best (dominant) genetic characteristics of both breeds with excellent meat quality, low production input requirements and a gentle, calm disposition. The Baldie Cow (F-1 Female) is also well known for their superior mothering characteristics such as higher milk production and calving ease.
