Premium Red Baldy Program

Premium Red Baldy is a tagging program designed to take advantage of hybrid vigor by maximizing the best traits of both Red Angus and Hereford and providing commercial producers with premium replacement females.

Benefits

Premium Red Baldy is a tagging program designed to take advantage of hybrid vigor by maximizing the best traits of both Red Angus and Hereford and providing commercial producers with premium replacement females.

The program will help producers access genetically verified females that have the best combination of longevity, fertility and adaptability to incorporate into producers’ herds.

As the nation’s cow herd expands to meet beef demand, Premium Red Baldy females will rise to the challenges of producing more beef sustainably and profitably, without sacrificing quality.

The Premium Red Baldy program has the ideal balance of maternal and carcass traits, which will yield cattle poised to increase the profitability of the commercial producer.

Premium Red Baldy uses genetics supported by the only two beef breed associations backed by whole herd reporting.
