Congrats on the 2 new babies. Wonderful that the births were so "uneventful".
Charolais and char crosses will mostly pass the color gene to the calves so even when bred black the calves will be a smokey gray from very light to very dark.
One of each so you can have an addition to the herd and beef in the freezer in 2 years.... The next calves will be alot easier on you now that you know more of what to look for and what NOT to get too worried over....
So nice to hear from you. I hope you are feeling well. Thank you for all of the info as always. That’s great to know about the cross and excited to fatten them up a bit and maybe find us another Simi when the time comes
