New to the site and also new to cattle. A little background. In march of 2018 I bought 4 angus heifers. I borrowed my neighbors Angus bull and successfully bred all 4 heifers. As I did more research as to what I wanted, I decided I wanted to get a Hereford bull to breed the following season to get the black baldie. Well I have had two calves from my hereford/angus mix. One is a solid black bull calf and the other is a solid red heifer calf. So I guess this is my question is...is this common and is there anything I can do different. I guess I was disappointed not to get the baldie I wanted. Thanks for any replies

Maybe you’ve got your Black Baldys by now. It could just be the dominant color traits are from the cow not the bull. If you had Hereford cows and Angus bull you might get the same thing. I’m still trying to figure it out myself and fortunately am getting some baldies along the way.
