F1 BLACK BALDY
Commercial Black Baldy Heifers (Heterosis | Hybrid Vigor)
Black-baldy heifers excel in performance as replacement females in commercial pastures. Heterosis beneficially influences many traits that are important for increased beef production, including fertility and reproduction, calf survival — due to hardier calves — maternal ability, growth rate of young animals, efficiency and longevity.The moderate size and black baldie’s heterosis advantages over straight breds, make her the proven choice for many commercial ranchers. Consider adding Ehlke Hereford bulls to your black cow breeding program and start realizing the benefits of the F1 cross – both in replacement females and feeder steers.

Several independent and well-respected studies have confirmed what many cattlemen already know—heterosis results in significant economic advantages for the commercial producer including:• Increased profitability
The crossbred cow is the key to maximum beef production and profitability in a cow-calf operation since hybrid vigor in the cow produces phenomenal maternal advantages.To read about studies done by various ranches that confirm the success of a Hereford-Angus cross, please see the following articles:
