I think what you're talking about are F1 Tiger Stripes. They are a yellowish Brindle with white faces. They are the result of crossing Herefrd Females with Brahma Bulls. No other cross produces the color consistently
These cattle are perfect for our environment as they are heat tolerant and insect resistant. If you're looking for cattle that will produce more, eat less and produce for many years, these are the ones. They have been the backbone of the Gulf Coast cattle business for 30 yrs. They are not seen as much now due to the commercial business looking for black hides.
You will see them in this business as well. One you are familiar with is Ashford 04
I have some as well and I wish I had more

F-1 is the cross of a Brahama onto a beef cow. Dr. Proctor is an F-1. RKO

The F1 cross is talked about in the subject on #100 Playmate. Nicki had some of them were really good and went on to be some sure enough buckers.

A neighbor of ours raises F1 tiger stripes. He uses white or grey brahmas cows and herford bulls. You get alot more different colors then herford cows under brahma bulls. One thing is for sure though they all have stripes and generally make good recep. cattle. They are pretty high dollar cows around here right now, I was lucky to get mine before they went to getting to high.
When asking make sure you say f-1 tigerstripes.F-1 can pertain to any purebred crossed with another not just hereford and brahman.

THANK YOU JIM SHE LOOKS GOOD. BUT DOES ANY ONE HAVE PIC. OF THE WHITE FACE BRINDLES LIKE BILL WAS TALKING ABOUT?
Here are some Pictures
Robin, I was raising F1, Bramer, Hereford cross for bucking bulls. Many contractors several years ago were raising them. They can make good bucking bulls but are slow coming around to buck. They are a great cross bred cattle and down here in south Texas breeding age F1s are about as popular as the black cattle. We really like them, still have a few cows. HS

Im also thinking like Tony Lama Boots has F1 in him. I may be wrong.
Robin, all F1 brindles do not have white faces. We prefer motley face or dark around the eyes, helps prevent eye cancer. Here is a true F1 brindle bucking bull. HS
Here is a brindle 2yr old out of M-17.

WOW, THATS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. THAT I SOME GOOD LOOKING BULLS HS. NOW WHY DINT YOU SEND SOME TO ME LIKE THAT. HAHAH JUST KIDDING
Robin, a lot of those bulls will eaisly go up 1800-2000 pounds. HS

F1 cattle are the first cross from a purebred cow and purebred bull of different breeds. I guess the colors are just luck.

The F1 or first filial cross was first described by Mendel (1865). The F1 cross is generally given very little attention in most genetics textbooks. These books seldom discuss its analytical power, especially in relationship to sex-linked traits and the different dominance relationships. All too often the F1 cross is treated as a "trivial" cross that one does on the way to "more interesting crosses" such as the F2 (second filial cross) or the various backcrosses.
Just a textbook definition basically saying that an F1 is the result of breeding a purebred male from one breed to a purebred female of a seperate breed. The term F1 is not recognized as a breed of cattle but the cross of two breeds of cattle. F1 crosses are also used when talking about crossing plant species or even dogs.

calamity jane i know a contractor that will sell you a trailer load of brindles, some off the you can barely fit in the bucking chute b/c they are that big. they have some good buckers and are for sale. or do like some and go to the sell barn, buy the bulls and buck em out if they dont buck take em back, you probably still will break even at least.
