Black Angus with one black baldy in the bunch. Black baldy = Hereford Angus cross.

I am not really sure that I am impressed that I know that...but after living in the country for so long and in a farming family/community, I would be embarrassed not knowing. Thanks Nomad.

I always took Herefords to show at fairs but had friends with Angus. Best beef I ever had was Brown Swiss X Hereford. Many years ago.

Actually, those cows are Gelbviehs.

Taken the same day. If I'm out in the backyard, they like to hang around and watch from over the fence.

That was a trick that got me. Still from what I read they supplied genes for the Angus breed.

Well I guess I was half right. The picture reminds me of my wonderful Great Pyrenees, Elan who spent so much time in with the cattle. I fed three orphaned spring calves one year and gave them all girls names that I would have given to my own little girl. Bad idea, never name what someone is going to eat.
