    He was actually an accident. We bred a 1st time beefmaster cow to an angus bull to get a smaller calf to reduce the chances of problems. That produced a BM/Angus bull. Uncle took way too long to decide if he wanted a bull or steer (already had two other bulls but what do I know!) and this BM/A bull busted through the fence and several months later, out comes this baldie calf. The farm is trying to get back to pure beefmaster, so the bull was butchered and this calf will be as well. Uncle is partial to brown/red cows, so that's where we're headed.

    .....and it's not really a white face, that is all a greyish color....
